Santos’ $4.7 billion Barossa gas field could produce more CO2 than LNG, report says

June 25, 2021

Iron ore magnate Andrew Forrest has attacked Santos over its plans to develop a new gas field in the Timor Sea

“Santos is about to kick off one of the most polluting projects in the world,” Mr Forrest told Nine newspapers.

Santos’s Barossa project is a $4.7 billion investment — one of the largest Australian oil and gas investments in almost a decade — which will extract gas from under the Timor Sea, 300 kilometres north of Darwin.
