QER’s New Fuels Development Centre at Yarwun north of Gladstone in Queensland contains an oil up-grading unit producing ultra-low sulphur diesel, jet fuel, low sulphur fuel oil and other products that Australia’s planes, trains, trucks and ships will need in the future.
QER’s production quantities of these high quality fuels will be small for the next few years. We will only produce about 37 – 40 barrels per day of synthetic crude oil and high quality fuels for transport. (A barrel contains 159 litres, so this equates to between 5,800 litres and 6,300 litres per day)
We are able to store up to 1,300 barrels (206,000 litres) of products in different holding tanks at the New Fuels Development Centre. Fuels will be transported in standard containers from the product load out facility to Brisbane by road or rail and will then be transported onwards from Brisbane to final destinations.
