Customers of Refining NZ tests new jet fuel facility for trucks to aid Auckland’s fuel supply

    Mobil Oil New Zealand manager Andrew McNaught stated (20-Sep-2017) customers of Refining New Zealand will be testing a new jet fuel facility for trucks at Whangarei to improve efficiency of transporting jet fuel into Auckland. Mr McNaught, representing customers of Refining NZ, said the industry will consider temporarily converting and using existing chemical tanks at Wynyard Wharf to bridge additional jet fuel into Auckland, “these tanks are not specifically designed for jet fuel and we need the highest level of assurance that using them for jet will not in any way impact on the quality of the product”.
