Shell facilities manager, Paul Benjamin, said that the new tanks are in response to the current customer demand and future growth plans in the Bowen Basin.
“Shell’s investment in the Mackay tanks is the largest investment in its terminal network in Australia for many years”.
Earlier this year, Shell reopened its Miles depot in the Surat Basin to increase diesel supply to the mining industry.
Shell investment in the resources market in Australia includes construction of new diesel storage in Newcastle, Kalgoorlie and King Bay in Western Australia, as well as building biodiesel capacity from the Newport terminal in Victoria.
