BP to expand fuel terminal in Adelaide

BP has announced a $20m expansion of the Largs North fuel terminal in Adelaide, with the goal of growing its business in South Australia.

BP says work has already started on the design of two additional 30 million litre storage tanks, with construction to start in the second half of 2011.

The Largs North terminal is already the largest storage facility in the region, and when complete the new tanks will double its diesel storage capacity.

The expansion will also see a rail gantry built within the terminal to allow the transportation of fuel throughout the state by rail.

According to BP, the increased capacity will provide options to bring in product via the shipping patterns from BP’s Kwinana refinery in Western Australia and, should the need arise, allow larger imports from Asia to improve supply security.

The new facility is said to be one of many being developed by BP and follows a multi-million dollar investment programme in new and up-graded terminals in Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland.
