WESFARMERS SUSTAINABILITY REPORT 2017

Meeting customers' needs

This year, EVOL LNG successfully refuelled a Woodside platform supply vessel with LNG.

LNG is a cleaner fuel than diesel and addresses some concerns of the shipping industry since the International Maritime Organisation announced the introduction of a global marine fuel sulphur limit of 0.5 per cent from 2020.

CSBP has commenced the construction of an ammonium nitrate emulsion plant at its Kwinana facility. This plant will provide Western Australian mining companies with alternative access to a blasting agent suitable for wet conditions and other specialty applications.

WesCEF has established a polyvinylchloride (PVC) trading business to continue to meet customers’ requirements for this important building and construction material, after WesCEF closed its PVC manufacturing facility in Laverton, Victoria.

Following entry to the Western Australian natural gas market in 2013, Kleenheat continues to offer low pricing and a vision of great service to customers. In 2017, Kleenheat reduced its pricing further and now offers over 25 per cent discount to the regulated gas pricing.
