About Us

About Us

Today, Spirit Energy’s team of more than 800 people oversees production of 50 million barrels of oil equivalent per year, while working out how to tap into reserves and resources in the pipeline amounting to 600 million barrels.

We are rethinking how we operate, allowing us to maximise the potential of our existing assets, work with our partners to bring exciting new developments on stream and maintain an absolute commitment to safety in everything we do.

Spirit Energy’s focus is on maximising the potential of our assets through thinking differently, acting quickly and doing it safely.
