Mobil Oil New Zealand Ltd has announced plans to improve fuel supply capacity for the South Island with the construction of two tanks at its fuel terminal in Lyttelton.
The tanks will be located adjacent to Mobil’s existing terminal at George Seymour Quay and will store petrol and diesel. They will replace those damaged by a 2014 landslide at Mobil’s Naval Point facility. The company expects to complete the work in early 2019.
Restoring the Lyttelton fuel terminal’s storage capacity is the latest of several recent major investments by Mobil, including the launch of its new Synergy family of fuels and associated service station enhancements, as well as the upgrade of its bulk fuels terminal at Mount Manganui.
“Construction of new tanks will restore fuel storage capacity at our Lyttelton operation, which, along with the Lyttelton-Woolston pipeline and Woolston Terminal, is an important part of the fuel supply chain in the South Island,” said Andrew McNaught, Country Manager for Mobil.
