Mobil Oil Australia is investing in its fuel storage capacity to provide almost 150 million litres of additional petrol and diesel storage by mid-2025.
Mobil, which supplies fuel to commercial customers, wholesalers, and retailers, including 7-Eleven Australia, will refurbish a number of tanks to provide storage, which will bolster the 100 million litres of additional storage that was brought online in June 2023.
Andrew McNaught, Sales Manager at Mobil Australia, said Mobil continues to invest in strengthening its Australian fuel supply chain and maintaining the safe and reliable delivery of fuel where and when its customers need it.
“Since 2022, we have been working to reinstate a number of tanks at our Melbourne terminal to provide almost 250 million litres of additional fuel storage by mid-2025.
“Increasing the storage capacity of our Melbourne terminal will support the reliable supply of quality Mobil fuels while contributing to Australia’s fuel security goals.”
As the operator of Melbourne’s largest fuel import and distribution terminal, Mobil is the only supplier who can bring fuel into both Sydney and Melbourne on Long Range 2 vessels, the largest ships available for transporting refined fuels.
“With capacity of up to 130 million litres, a single Long Range Vessel can carry enough fuel to fill almost half of the cars in Victoria.
“Having the ability to utilise Long Range Vessels significantly increases the efficiency of fuel import activities, and having larger, fuller ships regularly delivering fuel to Australia supports our fuel security,” said McNaught.
