Puma Energy Reopens Refinery After Major Inspection Phase
Puma Energy vows to continue to energise the local communities right across the country through its high quality fuel and lubricants energy supply.
To make that happen Puma Energy has underwent a major transition and turn around in upgrading its facilities at the Napa Napa refinery that went through a successful one month injury free turn around and inspection.
Puma Energy country manager Jim Collings said they are celebrating something pretty special to mark the re-commissioning and successful turn around and inspection (TNI) of Puma Energy’s Napa Napa refinery.
“The successful and injury free completion of the turn around and inspection will ensure that our facility is safe and highly productive where we will have the capacity to continue supply and energise the country with high quality fuel and energy supplies,” Mr Collings said.
“This is a first class achievement for the turn around and inspection which displays a true spirit of team work to deliver the project on time and with the required budget. “We are extremely proud of our Puma Energy team and the contractors who supported us in this project. “The project results are obvious testament to their technical skills as well as their passion and courage to deliver what needed to be done safely and effectively,” he said.
During the turn around and inspection some of the key refinery units were replaced and refreshed to improve the efficiency and throughput of the refinery to be producing at nameplate capacity and ensuring safe operations delivery at world class standards.
Puma Energy’s investment is part of an ongoing commitment to continually reinvest in the local infrastructure and raising the standards of the industry in PNG as well as providing full security of fuel supply with the country and the region.
At the time of a month closure when the refinery underwent upgrading Puma Energy ensured PNG’s fuel supply is stored and maintained to its capacity.
