Good news for consumers and business

North Queensland motorists and businesses welcomed the opening of our upgraded Townsville Fuel Terminal in April 2015. “We anticipate that this project will have lasting benefits for our region, both logistically and economically”, said Port of Townsville’s Claudia Brumme-Smith. Townsville is Puma Energy’s third fuel import terminal in Australia, while our Mackay Fuel Terminal services central Queensland areas, Townsville provides access to the northern and western Queensland areas, including mining communities in some of the most remote and difficult terrain in the country.

Expanding operations

The upgrade to the Townsville facility involved fitting new bulk storage tanks, as well as adding a new loadout facility and pipelines, which also allows us to store and distribute diesel and motor spirit products. Future plans include the conversion of the remaining fuel oil tank to diesel in 2018 and the site still has plenty of space for additional bulk storage tanks should they be required.

Flagship service centre in South Kempsey

While the new terminal enhances our ability to supply and store fuel in Australia, we continue to invest in distribution too, with the opening of our first newly-built service centre in South Kempsey, giving drivers high-quality refuelling and rest facilities on the Pacific Highway. The new travel centre is a key part of our strategy to expand our network in Australia and provide new services and benefits to our customers. This flagship development is a significant milestone for us and for Kempsey, providing convenient fuel access to the thousands of vehicles that pass along the highway each day.

Puma Energy is investing in storage facilities along Australia’s expansive coastlines, and improving service to remote areas.
