Safety & Environment

Safety is an overriding priority for Petro Diamond Australia and it is committed to conducting its business in a manner that protects the safety of employees, others involved in its operations, the public and the environment.

Port Bonython Terminal provides regional South Australian users a benefit through its closer proximity and thereby reduced kilometres travelled to source product. This also helps the environment with the equivalent reduction of carbon emissions. A reduction in kilometres travelled also has a marked impact in terms of operations risk mitigation and Petro Diamond Australia is proud to contribute to the reduction of risk on our South Australian roads.

Quality and Future Products

PDA Diesel conforms to the Australian Fuel Quality Standards Act 2000 (Cth) with cold properties controlled by Australian Standard AS 3570 – 1998.

Petro Diamond Australia maintains the highest standards for its product quality. This is a critical priority and stringent product quality checks are undertaken at Port Bonython.

Some of the procedures in place to ensure product integrity are:

  • Fuels are tested at the load port
  • Fuels are tested upon receipt at Port Bonython
  • Single dedicated product pipeline from ship to shore
  • Dedicated discharge tanks
  • Tested samples are retained for 6 months
  • Storage tanks undergo regular inspection and maintenance

Future products to be available at Port Bonython include a Premium diesel for enhanced fuel economy and Ultra fine Filtered diesel ex terminal gate. Our PBF terminal has the capability to filter diesel to a level of 16/14/11 meeting the ISO 4406 standard. Both products are designed to reduce running costs of light and heavy vehicle engines and will be available in the near future.
