Banlaw Case Study: Mines Which Keep Moving Need Mobile Fuelling Technologies

Banlaw Case Study: Mines Which Keep Moving Need Mobile Fuelling Technologies

Banlaw recently released a case study on new, mature, and proactive approaches to managing the hydrocarbon investment; which have unlocked the true business potential of diesel.

Located in Queensland’s Bowen Basin, this open-cut coal mine is expected to move continuously throughout its lifetime.

Whilst it is normal to deploy fuel infrastructure close to the mining fleet; in this area, mines are known to migrate many tens of kilometres. Repeatedly installing and moving fuel farms represents significant cost. In collaboration with Banlaw; this site has deployed something unique.

Leveraging the latest in mobile fuel management technologies, the fleet does not travel to the fuel on this site. Service Trucks refuel mining equipment in the pit; and staff shift patterns, vehicle maintenance schedules, even the amount of diesel stored on site have all been optimised to drive productivity, whilst remaining lean on cost and effort. 

Location

Bowen Basin, QLD, Australia.

The Bowen Basin contains the largest coal reserves in Australia. Mining methodology on this site is excavator and haul truck strip mining, as well as cast and doze.

Business Challenges

  • A mine site which is going to move a large distance over the next two decades
  • Significant OpEx tied up in stored diesel, and therefore unavailable to the business
  • Inefficient fluid management and administrative processes
  • Fuel Tankers turning up before the full delivery can be received
  • Insufficient reconciliation detail for fuel tax credit and carbon/environmental reporting
  • Large amounts of diesel unaccountable each month

Tracking every litre of diesel from the point it is unloaded until it is consumed by a specific machine has enabled optimisation of refuelling processes, shift patterns, maintenance schedules, stock holdings, and fluid security.

Savings to date are >$10,000,000 per annum.
