Oil Berth update
Channel DeepeningCruise BerthMaintenance DredgingReclamation

We’re undertaking repair and strengthening work on our oil berth, extending the longevity of this vital resource for Canterbury.

The oil berth was badly damaged during the Christchurch earthquakes. Work to strengthen the berth is underway and will be complete by mid-2020.

Some of the construction activities require the berth to be closed from October 14 to 22. To ensure the berth is reopened as soon as possible for customers fuelling the South Island, we need to work for longer hours during the week the berth is closed.

When are we doing it? 

Fulton Hogan is the contractor working onsite, and from October 14 to 22 the oil berth will be closed for repair work.

During this time construction work will occur typically between 5am and 11pm, but some 24 hours works may be needed. We are working with the Contractor to ensure, where possible, they programme the noisier activities during normal daytime working hours.
