                          Community groups visit Santos exploration site

Over 40 members of the local community took part in field trips to Santos’ Glasserton 1 drilling site
near Caroona this week. The Glasserton site is one of 20 coreholes that will be drilled this year as
part of Santos’ Gunnedah Basin coal seam gas exploration program.

Guests included Councillors and staff from Gunnedah, Warrumbungles and Liverpool Plains Shires,
as well as members of the Caroona Coal Action Group and local media.

Santos’ Gunnedah Project Coordinator, Kath Logan, said the visit enabled councillors and community
members to see the drilling activity first hand and give the company feedback on its operations in the
area.

“During this trip, quite a few local people have shared their opinions of our work and how it will affect
the area. We’ll be doing a further round of community consultation sessions in May. Specialists from
Santos will be available to explain our exploration program and to answer any questions people may
have.

“We are committed to giving people the information they need to make informed decisions about
Santos, our operations in the area and our part in the energy future of the region,” Ms Logan said.

Santos’ Technical Coordinator and geologist, Tom Lonergan, said: “It’s been great to show local
people exactly what happens on a Santos exploration site, the products we use and how we analyse
the core samples.”

Photographs of the Glasserton 1 drilling site are available on request.
