Lytton Terminal – Crude Oil Receiving Facility
IOR operates the Crude Oil Receiving Facility at Lytton in the Port of Brisbane on behalf of its Lytton Joint Venture owners. The Lytton Joint Venture consists of IOR Terminals Pty Ltd, Beach Energy Limited and AGL Gas Storage Pty Ltd.
The Lytton Terminal provides access to market for the onshore oil producers of the Surat and Cooper Basins. Crude oil arrives by tanker truck at the Lytton Terminal where it is unloaded and automatically sampled and metered before transfer to a 50ML floating roof tank where it is stored pending later sale and transfer to a local refinery for processing.
The 50ML tank is also used to store crude oil discharged directly from vessels at the oil berth in the Brisbane River under a shared operating agreement with a local refinery.
