The industry is dominated by four major companies, all of which refine fuel products domestically and import from their operations overseas. These players account for an estimated 93.7% of industry revenue in 2014-15, while the industry is also contested by smaller scale independent wholesalers and importers. The industry's supply chain has undergone substantial structural changes in recent years, associated with the closure of upstream refining capacity and the sale of assets in the industry. Decreased domestic refining has stimulated increased investment into industry import terminals and storage facilities.
Firms in this industry act as wholesalers of petroleum or petroleum products. They may also retail liquefied petroleum gas (in bulk or containers), heating oil or other fuel oils. The major oil refiners all have petroleum-wholesaling operations, but other firms also operate in the industry. Both locally refined and imported products are supplied.
