Leighton O’Brien expands global fuel cleaning footprint into Africa

We’re pleased to advise the expansion of our global fuel cleaning operations into southern Africa following a Licensed Service Partnership signed with underground storage tank monitoring specialist, PetroMonitor.

The agreement expands PetroMonitor’s suite of Leighton O’Brien’s technologies including tank integrity testing, wetstock management and now tank cleaning and fuel restoration. PetroMonitor’s fully trained and safety certified technicians will deliver the market-leading fuel cleaning system, supported by expert fuel data analysis and reporting by Leighton O’Brien’s highly qualified analysts.

CEO of PetroMonitor, Bryan Bartley, said: “We’re thrilled to deepen our relationship with Leighton O’Brien. We have been conducting product sampling on all sites for tank or line testing since 2015, so we have a breadth of data that indicates that at least 35 per cent of all tank systems across all oil companies, product grades, and locations show issues around fuel contamination.

“This expanded partnership will enable PetroMonitor customers to resolve fuel quality issues and water intrusion issues, malfunctioning dispensers, submersible pumps, automatic tank gauges, blocked filters, bacterial growth, diesel bugs and phase separation.

“Unlike other tank cleaning companies, Leighton O’Brien’s patented design and fuel cleaning process returns the customer’s fuel to pristine quality while quantifying the waste and contamination removed from site to assist our customers with inventory reconciliation adjustments, and reduce their overall cost.

“The valuable expertise and support from Leighton O’Brien thus far has been tremendous,” he said. “We look to continuing our long-standing relationship to ensure our clients continue benefitting from the world’s best technology.”

Leighton O’Brien head of International Distributors, Jason Park said: “This is a key milestone for Leighton O’Brien in the global growth of our fuel cleaning technologies.

“This development strengthens our partnership with PetroMonitor, who are an ideal partner to deliver our fuel polishing solution to the South African market.”

Mr Bartley said PetroMonitor is progressing market development opportunities with major oil companies.
