1-5521 SANTOS Lease Degasser Skids – Remaining Competitive in a Difficult Environment


SANTOs is the largest producer of gas in Australia. A major portion of the gas that they produce is Coal Seam Gas (Coal Bed Methane). In the best of times, the margins on Coal Seam Gas are slim however this has been further exacerbated with the drastic drop in the price of oil and gas. In order to meet this challenge, SANTOs has been using a new technology for their Degassers. This new technology allows SANTOS to dramatically reduce their capital cost. The new degasser design also allows them to increase capacity of existing wells and accelerate production and lower costs on new wells.
