Welcome On Board Wainoni Service Station

June, 2017

During the month of June we welcomed on board the latest owner operated service station to join our Allied network, Wainoni Service Station. This existing site marks an exciting time for Allied as our first service station within the Christchurch metropolitan area.

Wainoni Service Station

Wainoni Service Station has 91, 95, and diesel fuel available at the pump, as well as a retail convenience store offering coffee and quick bites to eat on the go. For commercial vehicles, a high flow diesel pump is available for faster refueling. In the coming months an outdoor payment terminal will be installed, enabling Wainoni Service Station to become a 24/7 operation so customers can refuel when it is most convenient for them. Welcome Kartik, Ameth and the rest of the team!

A New Fuel Stop for the Township of Pongaroa

May, 2017

Monday 22nd May 2017 was a special day for the township of Pongaroa, as it marked the day the first sod was turned for the new Pongaroa Fuel Stop.

The new unmanned 24/7 Fuel Stop is well needed by the township of Pongaroa who lost their only fuel outlet two years ago. With a local population of approximately 120 people, residents, farmers, contractors, tourists and police, have had to resort to driving to the nearest petrol stations in Danniverke or Pahiatua, approximately 60 kilometers away, to fill up 20L petrol containers to get them through.

In the past two years fuel has been sold by a number of residents when people turn up in dire straits. “Although it was illegal, we did it, but we can’t carry on,” Mr Monk told Tararua District councillors. “Route 52 is a very popular tourist route, with fuel available in Masterton and Waipukurau, but tourists think there will be fuel in Pongaroa and they get caught out.”

In a courageous move the community of Pongaroa fundraised to contribute to the $500,000 project, making this a remarkable and quite possibly a landmark case for New Zealand. Allied Petroleum were chosen as a partner after offering to invest alongside the community with specialist equipment (all tanks, pumps, and payment terminal). We also set about bringing the right partners to guide design and construction. Allied Petroleum’s slogan is ‘never run out’, and while most people associate that with a reliable bulk delivery service, we think it relates well to our role in keeping fuel available to the Pongaroa community.

The Fuel Stop is being built on land donated by Wright Broughton’s family, and will provide service on the same site where a boarding house stood 100 years ago. “The boarding house was a stopover for those travelling from Hawke’s Bay to Wairarapa and Wellington and when it burnt down, the replacement became my family home in the 1940s,” Mr Broughton said. “After my mother died in 1962, the house was dismantled in 1964 and taken away, so it’s wonderful to see the land is going to be useful again for the community.”

The Fuel Stop is expected to be finished late July, with an official opening in August. Pongaroa resident Jason Ellmers said the Fuel Stop was desperately needed and the community were very grateful to the committee who had “gone the extra mile.”

Community Response Unit 1 has Landed!

May, 2017

The first of our Community Response Unit tanks has recently been transported onto site at Okiwi Bay. This site, 30km north of Kaikoura, is on the earthquake damaged section of State Highway 1.

We will be delivering diesel to this tank from the Nelson Fuel Terminal due to SH1 being closed to the South of Kaikoura.

The fuel is being supplied to the NCTIR (North Canterbury Transport Infrastructure Recovery) team, who are coordinating a joint response involving a number of civil contractors who are working to clear slips and rebuild the Highway.

The fuel usage from the tank is already high, and as more contractors are engaged in the road rebuilding projects, demand is likely to grow as a result.

Being a company based long term in Christchurch, who understand the effect mother nature can have, we wanted to invest in additional capacity so we are able to be better positioned to assist in the event of a crisis.

Allied Darfield – Now Open for Trading

February, 2017

Allied Petroleum’s Darfield Fuel Stop opened for trading on 3 February 2017, on the site of the old Z Service Station on South Terrace. The opening is the first stage of the proposed operation. Allied’s main focus before the completion of Stage 2 is to offer the Darfield community another choice of fuel supply at a competitive price.

Initially, the new facility will operate as an un-manned, 24 hour refuelling site, before stage two, which will see it become an owner operated service station later in the year, including a retail convenience store.  The site will continue as a self-service operation at night after the convenience store closes.

The station has a separate forecourt under canopy for smaller passenger vehicles, with 91, 95 and diesel fuel at the pump.  For commercial vehicles, the large scale site means drivers will enjoy easy access along with a high flow diesel pump and faster refuelling.

The card payment terminals accept a variety of cards including Allied card, Mobilcard, Ruralco card, Fleetcard, along with Eftpos and Visa cards.

The new Fuel Stop is located at 15 South Terrace, Darfield.  Find Allied Darfield on our map.
