Solar Beam Pump | Santos
SA WINNER 2019
Santos operates oil and gas production assets in regional South Australia, Queensland and Western Australia. In the Cooper Basin, Santos has 220 beam pumps powered by dedicated generators. Each beam pump consumes around 10,000 litres of fuel per month.

In an Australian-first for the oil industry, Santos successfully installed and commissioned a solar photovoltaic (PV) array and battery allowing one of our beam pumps to operate without its generator. This complex project required close collaboration both within Santos and external suppliers. It demonstrates Santos’ commitment towards a lower carbon future, while cementing its position as a safe, low cost operator.
