Mobil's contribution to Australia's fuel security
Australians have long-benefited from a robust fuel supply chain, thanks to the ongoing investment by industry in fuel supply and logistics infrastructure to keep pace with growing demand.

Mobil is committed to helping maintain the reliability of Australia’s fuel supply chain, and we continue to invest in improving our storage and supply capacity to support a reliable supply of fuel to our customers. Our customers know they can count on us to provide the fuel they need, when and where they need it.

In the last few years we have constructed two new 20 million litre tanks at Yarraville terminal, along with a new pipeline to improve the transport of jet fuel from Yarraville terminal to Melbourne Airport. As operator of the Melbourne Airport Joint User Hydrant Installation, we delivered a significant increase in jet fuel storage at the airport, with the construction and commissioning of two new jet fuel tanks and associated infrastructure in late 2019.

We have also commenced a project to expand the truck loading rack at Yarraville terminal which will enable fuel tankers to spend less time at the terminal and get on their way to delivering fuel to communities faster.

While Australia’s current fuel supply infrastructure and systems support a secure and reliable supply of fuel, we respect the views of the Australian government if it believes more storage is needed from a policy perspective.
