Our fuels are NMA-free
As Australia’s largest supplier of transport fuels, we ensure that our fuels continue to meet stringent Australian Fuel Quality Standards.
Recently we have become aware of a chemical known as NMA (N-Methylaniline) in fuel supplied in the Mackay region. NMA is an organic compound commonly used as a solvent or as an additive for dyes, fertiliser and organic products. However, it appears that NMA is being used in the Mackay region because of its ability to serve as an octane booster for transport fuels.
We have never blended NMA into any fuel sold from our terminals or refineries and will not compromise on this commitment, nor do we buy fuel that contains NMA.
Through our Australian Institute of Petroleum (AIP) membership, we are actively advocating for the Australian Government to make the necessary enquiries to ensure that Australians are not negatively affected by the use of potentially harmful additives in fuels.
