Viva Energy Australia was formed following the acquisition of Shell’s downstream business (excluding lubricants production) in Australia in 2014. Viva Energy is the exclusive licensee of the Shell brand in Australia and provides consumers and business customers with quality Shell products.
Viva Energy has more than 900 Shell branded service stations and employs over 1,300 people. The retail network is evolving continuously, both through investment in existing service stations and expanding the footprint on the ground.
The network is supported by 20 fuel import and storage terminals and the Geelong Refinery, owned by Viva Energy Australia. The 120,000 barrels per day refinery is one of the largest and most complex hydrocarbon refineries in Australia. It produces about half of Victoria’s fuel needs and is the only Australian refinery that manufactures bitumen and avgas (used by piston engine planes). In addition, the refinery produces solvents to support the Australian mining, paint, adhesive and other industries.
