July 2015 - SA - Port Bonython Fuels Facility

“Port Bonython is a dedicated hydro carbon precinct located near Whyalla in the Upper Spencer Gulf in South Australia. This area contains facilities developed to support the oil and gas industry born from the success of South Australia’s Cooper Basin.

With no local refinery capacity in South Australia, Port Bonython became a location of strong interest for the development of a new diesel fuel importation terminal. Port Bonython Fuels (PBF) was formed in 2006 as the principle company to take this concept to development with a budget of $110M.

Petro Diamond Australia (PDA) a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation is the owner of the Project and Coogee Chemicals (CC) a well-known and experienced terminal operator will operate the Terminal.”

ICE was awarded the multimillion dollar Electrical and Instrumentation installation contract in July 2015 from PBF, the projectis scheduled for completion in May 2016 with more than 20 staff from the ICE Whyalla office deployed to perform the works.
