New tanks at Bluff provide additional diesel supply

Mobil Oil New Zealand Media Release

For immediate release


‘New tanks at Mobil Bluff Terminal provide additional diesel supply for the South Island’


Mobil Oil New Zealand Limited (Mobil) is working to ensure the reliable supply of fuel in the South Island through the acquisition of two tanks at Bluff Terminal.

The two fuel tanks are located adjacent to the existing terminal, and will add an additional 4 million litres of diesel storage.

Mobil Oil New Zealand Lead Country Manager Andrew McNaught said Mobil has actively pursued additional fuel storage options to ensure ongoing reliable supply in the South Island following the closure of the Z Energy fuel storage Terminal in Bluff in February 2014.

“We are committed to investing in supply infrastructure for the South Island. Mobil’s Bluff Terminal is an important supply port for petroleum fuels to service the lower South Island market, particularly diesel for agricultural use.

“In addition to acquiring these tanks, Mobil has already provided an additional 1.6 million litres of diesel storage at Bluff Terminal this year through conversion of an existing tank at the site,” he said.

The tanks will be extensively upgraded to the latest industry and regulatory standards and are expected to be ready for use in early 2015.
