RD Petroleum are proud supporters of the Life Education Trust – Heartland

The Life Education Trust – Heartland covers Otago and Southland, and RD Petroleum are proud supporters. Last year, Pip and Harold visited 8,140 children and 64 schools in the region.

RD Petroleum help the Life Education Trust in the Heartland by supplying them with an RD Petroleum fuel card, this helps them get around all the schools in the vast and beautiful Otago and Southland region.

The Life Education Trust really fills a gap in kiwi kids education covering food and nutrition, body systems, self-esteem, social relationships and substances and delivers important key messages for children’s health and wellbeing in an interactive and engaging way.

What you might not know is the Life Education Trust is a charitable trust which doesn’t receive any government funding, with 70% of their substantial running costs coming from grants, donations and fundraising ventures. That’s why it’s so important that businesses like ours and others throughout Otago and Southland put a hand up and support organisations like the Life Education Trust.

RD Petroleum upgrade to aviation site at Franz Josef is underway - 17th Aug 2018

RD Petroleum is doing upgrades to the aviation fuel site at Franz Josef Glacier. Part of the upgrade involved transporting a 60,000 litre tank from the east coast of New Zealand to the west coast. This went surprisingly well, considering the size and scale of the operation. The 60,000 litre tank is now secured and going to replace five individual tanks around the site. Major earthworks are underway at the site.
After the new tank is fully installed there will be eight pumps installed that will be assessable to all those operators with an Air BP RD Petroleum Carnet card. The site itself has a number of helicopter pads and is in high demand with regular aviation tour operators stopping there regularly between trips. Installing the eight pumps and allowing carnet card access will make it a lot easier for customers to access, operate and refuel in Franz Josef.

RD Petroleum is now delivering home heating diesel to Queenstown and Central Lakes District

Keep your home warm this winter with RD Petroleum. We deliver diesel to Queenstown and the Lakes District at competitive prices. RD Petroleum is a familiar sight for rural New Zealanders, supplying bulk fuel and having self-service petrol stations dotted throughout the South Island.

RDP has been delivering home heating diesel in the lower South Island main centres – Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin, and Invercargill - for several years, and with increased demand, has now expanded into the Central Lakes District delivering diesel to Queenstown, Frankton, Jacks Point, Wanaka, Arrowtown, and Cromwell. Where residents are welcoming the competitive pricing offered by RDP.

There is a few reasons the RD Petroleum home heating diesel delivery service is in high demand; RDP offers competitive pricing and their delivery service is a little different. RD Petroleum has specialist mini tankers that deliver home heating diesel. These mini tankers are specially designed with a 60m hose. This length of hose allows the trucks to access diesel tanks on your property without having to enter the property, avoiding the risk of any damage to your driveway.

The mini tankers are also part of RD Petroleum’s extensive fleet of vehicles, this means they have the latest in communication capabilities and GPS tracking onboard, so the operations team always know where they are and how far away they are from their next delivery.

If you choose to become an RD Petroleum customer, you also get offered discounted pricing and can become eligible for value-added benefits. All this means savings on your home heating costs. Sounds good, doesn’t it. To get started on keeping your home toasty and warm this winter with RD Petroleum, contact us on 0800 44 00 14.

RD Petroleum set to be Providing Roxburgh and Invercargill with Aviation Fuel - 7th Jun 2018

RD Petroleum set to be Providing Roxburgh and Invercargill with Aviation Fuel

RD Petroleum will soon be supplying Jet A-1 in Roxburgh. The site will be accessible to anyone with an RD Petroleum Carnet card. It will help support the local agricultural aviation industry - the area is one of New Zealand’s most important apple and stone fruit growing areas, with a mixture of livestock and fruit production in the area.

RD Petroleum will soon be at Invercargill Airport, with an avgas site going in next to the hangar of Southern Wings Aviation College, an Air New Zealand preferred aviation institution, and one of the oldest aviation schools in New Zealand. RD Petroleum will be replacing the current inground avgas tank later this month and it will, again, be accessible to anyone with a Carnet card. We imagine the popular Aviation College will be one of our biggest users at the site.

With both aviation sites being accessible 24/7 to aviation users with an RD Petroleum Carnet card, kiwi businesses across Otago and Southland will be relieved to see these services continue. If you have accessed these sites in the past, please contact us on 0800 44 00 14 to ensure continued service. RD Petroleum is proud to be supporting the agricultural and aviation industries across the South Island.

RD Petroleum is rolling out camera technology to improve on-road safety - 1st Jun 2018

RD Petroleum is rolling out camera technology to improve on-road safety

RD Petroleum is currently installing the latest in camera technology across the RDP delivery fleet. Inward and outward facing cameras are being installed in every delivery vehicle and automatically recording during operation. Soon most of the RD Petroleum fleet will have this technology, with Dunedin and Invercargill in the final stages of being rolled out.

The internal facing camera gives insight into driver reactions and allows us to look at ways that events were handled and if they could have been handled differently. Rolling out the camera technology allows RDP drivers to learn from these events. These cameras allow us to better access, react, and reflect on any incidences which are bound to occur on the road.

Health and safety is an important part of the RD Petroleum ethos and this new technology helps to support staff. Across any given day, RDP could have anything up to thirty or so drivers operating across New Zealand, and with 365 days in a year, incidences are bound to occur. The cameras are an excellent learning tool if anything should go wrong, and for staff to learn from any near misses or incidents.

Driving is one of the biggest hazards for RD Petroleum staff and this technology allows us to have the information right at our fingertips if something does occur. Drivers can alert us to an incident and we can easily download the video footage and access it. This means drivers are protected with accurate real-time footage and RD Petroleum can better react and respond to any incidences.

The Flying New Zealand National Championships in February have been a highlight for RD Petroleum. Our Timaru Avgas site proved to be very popular. RD Petroleum provided a BBQ and cold drinks for the occasion, and there was lots of interest and sales through our new Timaru Avgas site.

RD Petroleum is expanding into aviation fuel in Invercargill and is on track to have the site up and running by the end of May, with it being fully accessible by RD Petroleum aviation customers with their Carnet card. The site, which replaces Air BPs Avgas site, will have both Jet A-1 and Avgas for sale.

RD Petroleum is also planning a site in Haast, the project is on track and we will hopefully have the site in place in August. It will provide locals with Avgas and Jet A-1.

Warbirds Over Wanaka was a monumental event, being the 30th anniversary event. We had a great catch-up with some of our customers and really enjoyed the show. New Zealand really has a fantastic industry with some talented pilots.
