Fiji Gas built their first ocean gas terminals in 1973, one in Suva and one in Lautoka. Under the 10 year Mobil contract they had no need for terminals and bulk storage, However when the company went into partnership with Boral they needed terminals. An Australian company, Norman J Hurll, led the construction of both terminals. They were both built with 3 x 150 tonne tanks. Fiji Gas wanted to have such a high capacity to ensure they could always fulfil their customers’ requirements.
