Our Partnership with Santos
Leading oil and gas producer Santos will fund a $20,000 scholarship for a student enrolling in petroleum engineering at The University of Adelaide.
Successful students will receive $10,000 each year for the first two years of their course and have the opportunity to develop a career-enhancing relationship with the company.
Recognising the growing demand for engineering expertise in an industry that is leading our technological future, the South Australian Government has pledged to match industry-funded scholarships. This means that an additional scholarship will involve Santos. One will be named the Santos Playford Trust Petroleum Engineering Scholarship, and the other will be named the SA Government/Santos/Playford Trust Petroleum Engineering scholarship. These scholarships will be offered each year, until 2024.
A proudly Australian company, Santos is a leading supplier of natural gas, a fuel for the future providing cleaner energy to improve the lives of people in Australia and Asia.
Santos is already Australia’s biggest domestic gas supplier, a leading Asia-Pacific LNG supplier and aims to be a world-leading clean fuels company, achieving net-zero emissions by 2040.
Santos will grow its clean fuels capability as customer demand evolves for zero-emissions LNG, hydrogen and other products through carbon capture and storage, nature-based offsets, energy efficiency and use of renewables in its operations.
Underpinned by a diverse portfolio of high-quality natural gas, oil and strategic infrastructure assets in the Cooper Basin, Western Australia, northern Australia and Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea, Queensland and New South Wales, Santos seeks to deliver long-term value to shareholders.
