A consultant’s report has warned the New Zealand government that shutting down Marsden Point at Whangārei Heads, the country’s only oil refinery, could expose New Zealand to fuel security risks, Newshub reports. Plans for a $250m shutdown to turn it into an import-only terminal are already well advanced. However, the Energy Minister said the risks, which centre on reconfigured supply chain, are not significant. Officials already sought a review of the risks as well as losing 320 jobs and cleaning up the contaminated site.
