Jobs to go

THE Barry Beach Marine Terminal owned by Esso has been leased out to a new operator, a transition which will result in 11 staff losing their jobs.

Esso has said it would provide all necessary support and assistance to its employees directly impacted by the announcement.

Following the completion of the Kipper Tuna Turrum Project, use of Esso’s Barry Beach Marine Terminal – the main supply depot for its 23 offshore platforms and installations – dwindled.

Last year, a review identified significant underutilised capacity at the facility and as a result, Esso sought expressions of interest for a new operator.

After undertaking an extensive commercial process, logistics and infrastructure company Qube Energy was chosen to operate the terminal.

Qube Energy will provide supply depot services to Esso Australia’s offshore platforms. Subject to approvals, the transition of operations to the new operator is expected to occur later this year.

“The change will enable Esso to maximise the value of the asset by allowing Qube Energy to offer spare terminal capacity to third-party customers,” a company spokesperson said.

The spokesperson said Barry Beach Marine Terminal is a valuable asset to the Gippsland region.

“With the ability to now provide a broader range logistics services, it has the potential to create economic and employment growth opportunities for Victoria,” they said.

New management: the Esso owned Barry Beach Marine Terminal has been leased to a new operator, Qube Energy, which will result in the loss of 11 jobs.
