The oil major BP Plc plans to build two bitumen import facilities in north-eastern Australia.

One of the terminals will be able to handle bunker fuel.

The article says the terminals are to be built at Blackport in Brisbane and at Townsville in North Queensland.

Mike Bailey, a general manager at BP Bitumen Australia, was quoted as saying the $80 million Blackport terminal would be able to import and distribute marine fuel.

The Townsville terminal will be built in conjunction with a new plant to produce polymer modified bitumen.

The two bitumen terminals are being built in response to demand for road construction in the area.

BP supplies about 30% of Australia"s bitumen market and is the largest distributor in Queensland.

Demand for road construction is rising in part because of plans to build liquefied natural gas plants in the state.

BP plans to use three tankers with "hot-bottoms" that can keep the bitumen liquid to supply the new terminals, Bill Paterson, the project director.
