Jet fuel shortage: 'Absolutely sorry' - Refining NZ boss

From Morning Report, 8:15 am on 18 September 2017

Fuel supplies to Auckland have been disrupted after a digger working on a farm damaged the pipeline between Auckland Airport and the Marsden Point refinery.

Refining New Zealand chief executive Sjoerd Post has apologised for the problems it has caused. He tells us reports of a kauri digger hitting the pipe three months ago is "fake news".

"A digger has scraped over it, that's the only fact we have." Anything further is supposition, he says.
