Update - Queensland flood situation
Jan. 13, 2011
Shell Australia can confirm that its Pinkenba Terminal in Eagle Farm received minimal damage in the recent floods.
A team of employees are attending the site today to prepare for a resumption of normal activity, as soon as it can be done safely.
Shell is hoping to resume some deliveries this afternoon – subject to electricity supply at the terminal, road conditions and safe access into customer sites.
The company’s terminals in Gladstone, Mackay, Townsville, Cairns, Newcastle and Parramatta continue to operate as normal – and the supply situation is being continually monitored.
As a result of the disruption caused by extreme weather conditions, customers may experience delays in the next few weeks as it may take some time for Shell to restore normal supply.
The safety of employees and the community remains Shell’s number one priority, and all activities are subject to safe operation.
Commercial customers are encouraged to contact their account managers to discuss whether deliveries to particular sites are possible. Further information is available by visiting www.shell.com.au.
Shell’s thoughts remain with its staff, contractors and the wider Queensland community as they continue to experience difficult times.
