Teesside upgrade includes petrol

Greenergy has completed the first significant milestone in the regeneration of a former refinery on Teesside, now called Greenergy North Tees, as part of its programme of investment in fuel infrastructure.

This phase of regeneration has seen the facility, a top tier COMAH (Control of Major Accident Hazards) site, upgraded to include petrol storage. New pipeline links have been created to other storage facilities in the Teesside area and improvements have been made to tanks, road loading and import facilities.

A new petrol rail loading facility has also been installed.

The result is an integrated and flexible supply terminal for both petrol and diesel that is responsive to changing fuel supply and demand trends, and capable of meeting the future road fuel requirements of the North East region as well as the wider UK economy.

The former refinery, located at Seal Sands near Middlesbrough, was closed by previous owner Petroplus in 2010 and used as a diesel terminal. It was acquired by Greenergy in July 2012 and re-opened as Greenergy North Tees in November that year.

Andrew Owens, Greenergy chief executive, said: "The regeneration of the facility ensures greater fuel resilience in the North East and beyond. This is a major site with the potential to provide back-up supply to other locations such as Scotland if required."
