Santos Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, David Knox, said: “This is the largest project we have ever undertaken as a company and I am so proud that we have been able to deliver this on time and within budget […] Successfully delivering our first operated LNG project is a testament to our dedicated employees and contractors, the support we have received from governments, local communities, our customers and shareholders, as well as the strong relationships we enjoy with our joint venture partners.”
Mr Knox added: “The first cargo from GLNG strengthens our position as a major and competitive LNG supplier to Asia […] GLNG is a robust project and will generate strong cash flows for the business for decades to come.”
