WITH Australia’s largest network of supply sources and distribution outlets, Elgas provides a reliable, efficient bulk LNG supply service. The company supports mining sites by providing LPG power to camp facilities – particularly camps in remote areas that have little to no access to other sources of power, where cooking and hot water systems are run on Elgas’ LPG gas.
Some of Elgas’ customers include Peabody Energy’s Burton mine, BHP Mitsubishi Alliance’s metallurgical coal mine in Queensland, and the Boddington gold mine and Fortescue Metals Group projects in WA, as well as the Mac accommodation camps.
Elgas commercial marketing manager Ray Squires said the company had Australia’s largest LPG storage facility – also the largest storage facility in the southern hemisphere – which placed it in a strong position to offer security of supply to its customer base.
“Elgas operates through a number of regional centres as well, rather than just focussing on centralised operations like some of our competitors,” he said.
Mr Squires said it was this regional presence, combined with a fast response time, that gave Elgas its competitive advantage.
“Our efficient and competent personnel will ensure that regular deliveries are maintained and that you derive maximum utilisation from the equipment installed,” he said.
“The Elgas network is supported with more than 140 delivery tankers operating out of local outlets.”
Gas usage varies from project to project, depending on the size of a site and what LPG will be used for on sire. This is why Elgas has a team of specialists that can calculate the most cost effective amount of LPG required.
“One of the things Elgas can offer is a service which reviews clients’ energy options, allowing them to choose an overall energy package that is sustainable and cost-effective for their options.”
