Viva Energy Group (ASX:VEA)
Viva Energy (ASX:VEA) is one of Australia’s leading energy companies. The company helps Australians reach their destinations by making, importing and delivering the fuels, lubricants, chemicals and bitumen they need to get there.
Viva Energy owns and operates the Geelong Refinery, one of only four refineries in Australia. It supplies over 10 percent of Australia’s fuel – and more than 50 percent of all the fuel used in Victoria.
Every second flight out of Victoria takes off with the company's locally supplied jet fuel. The company makes and supplies the bitumen that paves Australia’s roads, runways and racetracks, and the chemicals used by industries such as mining, paint and adhesives.
Employing around 700 people and pumping millions of dollars into the local economy through wages and services, the Geelong Refinery is a vital part of Australia’s energy solution. The company has invested in improvements, and increasing storage capacity to ensure it will continue to be an important part of local manufacturing for years to come.
Viva Energy supplies around a quarter of the country’s total liquid fuel requirements. Local production at its Geelong Refinery is supplemented with products imported through the worlds’ largest independent trader (the Vitol Group) and delivered safely and reliably nationwide through the company's network of more than 22 fuel import terminals around the country.
Viva Energy is the exclusive supplier of Shell fuels and lubricants in Australia through its network of over 1,250 service stations across the country.
