Our activities in Australia

Solar panels on Australian soil surrounded by green nature

Activities in Australia focus on the exploration, development and production of hydrocarbons and natural gas, and the renewable energy market. The Katherine photovoltaic plant, located in the Northern Territory, contributes to meeting the federal state’s target of producing 50% of energy from renewable sources by 2030. The solar farm also helps eliminate around 63,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year. In the country we promote initiatives for the development of the territories, the protection of First Nation People and the conservation of biodiversity.

In Asia and Oceania we also produce natural gas for our host countries and market liquefied natural gas (LNG). We promote low carbon technologies and the circularity of industrial processes. We develop projects for the generation of photovoltaic energy and we evaluate the launch of initiatives for the capture, storage and reuse of carbon dioxide

How we operate in the country

Emerging new energies and natural gas

Located in the Northern Territory, Katherine solar farm, developed with the goal of optimising and innovating processes, is the biggest plant in Australia. It has an installed capacity of 34 MW and is equipped with a battery energy storage system with capacity of 6 MW. The electricity generated is fed into the local grid, contributing to the local government’s decarbonisation target.

The gas extracted from the Blacktip field in the Bonaparte Basin is treated by the nearby Yelcherr plant and used to fire a state power plant for the benefit of local communities. The Bayu-Undan gas and liquids field, located between Australia and East Timor, and the Darwin LNG liquefaction plant enable us to further consolidate our energy source diversification strategy in the country. Additional partnership opportunities in the area of the capture, storage and reuse of CO2 and the development of new exploration projects are also undergoing evaluation.

The Caring for Country project for the protection of the cultural heritage of indigenous peoples and underwater and land biodiversity has been launched in Australia. The initiative directly involves Indigenous Australians in environmental monitoring activities and the management of flora and fauna.
