Viva Energy Australia
Oil refiner and fuels supplier
Formed in August 2014 when a consortium led by Vitol acquired Shell's downstream business in Australia (including the Geelong refinery and Shell service stations) for $2.6b. Viva Energy supplies around 25% of Australia's fuel and is the exclusive licensee and distributor of Shell branded fuels and lubricants in Australia. Operates more than 900 service stations across the country. In December 2014, it acquired a minority, non-controlling stake in Liberty Oil, to whom Viva is a major supplier.
