Statement Pinkenba Terminal Closure
Jan. 11, 2011
In order to ensure the safety of employees and contractors Shell Australia has closed its Pinkenba Terminal in Eagle Farm due to extreme weather conditions.
Due to the closure no products will be available for pick up or to be delivered from the terminal until further notice.
Shell is expecting the situation to have a minimal impact on Coles Express retail sites, as stock levels at service stations remain high. Commercial customers are encouraged to contact their account managers for further information or to visit www.shell.com.au for additional updates.
The company will continue to monitor the situation, and the safety of employees and contractors will remain the highest consideration in reopening the facility.
Shell’s thoughts are with its staff, contractors and the wider Brisbane community for their safety and well being at this difficult time.
