Who is Viva Energy?

“We’re proud to be Australian, proud of our 120-year history and extremely proud of our achievements,” said Renee Reilly, Viva Energy, Sales and Marketing Manager – Lubricants. “We help Australians reach their destinations by making, importing and delivering the fuels, lubricants, chemicals and bitumen they need to get there. We play a major role in getting people and goods from A to B.”

Shell has a history of innovation in lubricants and was the first supplier to market cleaner, purer lubricants made from natural gas. Significant investment in research and development has led to technologically advanced products that are reliable in even the toughest Australian conditions, and across all industries including construction, quarrying and mining.

 “Shell invest significantly in technical collaboration and has over 350 product application specialists that work closely with OEM and customers to develop innovative lubricant solutions,” says Silvana Farrugia, Technical Expert from Viva Energy. “Our lubricants products can deliver value but also improve business outcomes.”

Working together to reach our sustainability goals.

“Beyond refining and lubricants, we are also looking ahead to the future and aim to establish new energy projects which will transform the Geelong refinery site into a modern Energy Hub and meet the changing energy needs of all Australians.”

“Our vision for the Geelong Energy Hub is focused on exploring opportunities in transition fuels (such as LNG), alternative fuels (such as biofuels and hydrogen), and renewable energy and emission reduction projects such as a solar energy farm at our Geelong Refinery,” Renee said.

“We know that it is critical for the sustainability of our business, but also our customers businesses that we understand the opportunities and risks associated with climate change, and incorporate these into our business strategy. All of these initiatives help our customers to also reach their goals, and allow us to be a true business partner for all of their energy requirements,” Renee said.
