This Singapore-based Company will acquire and fund the development of a greenfield refinery site in Australia to service domestic demand and take advantage of key strategic features.
- Demand for diesel that is widely used in agriculture and mining – whereby 60% of diesel is imported and forecast to increase to 80% as existing 50 year old domestic refineries close;
- Location near market reduces downstream costs – diesel market of 7B litres serviceable by road from the refinery and access to deep-water port allows delivery of larger more cost efficient cargoes;
- Limited alternative sources due to environmental regulations pertaining to the region resulting in high cost Asian diesel imports; and
- Option to expand next to the existing site creating a local trading hub.
