Adelaide's Fuel Storage

How much fuel storage do we have in Adelaide?

Since the closure of the Port Stanvac Oil Refinery in 2003, the majority of SA’s petrol supplies are shipped in to Birkenhead. RAA understands that at any point in time there is 10 days of fuel held in storage at the Port Adelaide facilities.

RAA understands that in Australia the majority of local demand for petroleum products is met by Australian refineries. However, Australia is increasingly importing a larger portion of foreign refined petroleum products to meet local demands, particularly diesel.
