We entered the Australian marketplace in 2013 when we acquired Ausfuel Gull, Matilda, Neumann and Central Combined Group, making us the largest independently-owned fuel company in the country. We acquired the bulk seaboard fuel terminal at Eagle Farm in Brisbane along with a 64,000m³ storage facility in the port of Mackay and 16 strategically located fuel depots. We also completed the acquisition of Caltex Australia Ltd's bitumen business. The Sydney-based bitumen business operates through an agreement with Terminals Pty Ltd, who operate a purpose-built bitumen terminal in Port Botany, Sydney.
In August 2015, Puma Energy completed the acquisition of BP's Australian bitumen business. Puma Energy Regional Commercial Manager Ray Taylor said the decision to acquire the bitumen business came at a time when the Australian bitumen market was going through transition.
We further strengthened our supply capabilities in the Australian fuel market with the completion of our Townsville fuel terminal in April 2015. The terminal provides access to the northern and western Queensland areas, including remote mining communities, and is our third fuel import terminal in the country. In particular, Townsville complements our Mackay Fuel Terminal, which services the central Queensland areas and is another major asset for the region, providing further access to worldwide independent fuel supplies.
We continue to invest in our retail offering by expanding the network and the non-fuel offer, also throughout our C-Stores. Puma Energy now has 362 retail sites across Australia with a comprehensive commercial, retail, fuel card, distribution, storage and transport offering, supported by 222 convenience stores, 82 restaurants, 60 truck stops and 15 car washes. The Australian-run operation services remote and regional areas and runs extensive retail network, terminal and depot facilities.
We own and operate bulk seaboard terminals in Brisbane, Mackay and Townsville, with total storage of 306,000m³ and another under construction in Perth. We also have access to industry terminals in Darwin and Perth.
Australia allows us to supply mining companies that operate in this mineral rich country, home to a wide range of natural resources such as iron-ore, gold, oil and gas.
