Greenergy has begun road-loading of diesel and heating oil at Thames Oilport, giving it a supply location in the South East of England.
The company said the opening of road-loading facilities is another significant milestone in the regeneration of the site, to turn the former refinery into a modern import terminal capable of meeting growing fuel demand in the South East.
Twelve months ago Thames Oilport received its first shipments of diesel and opened for ship-in/ ship-out storage. This allowed the company to benefit from contango market conditions and at year end it had more than 250 million litres of diesel stored. The next phase of regeneration at Thames Oilport will enable petrol storage and road supply.
