  • Title: Company History - Coogee Chemicals
    Descriptive info: 1971.. 1971-1980.. 1981-1985.. 1986-1990.. 1991-1995.. 1996-2000.. 2001-2005.. 2006-2010.. 2011 Beyond.. +.. -.. Coogee Chemicals was formed in the early 1970s by thirteen individual investors, mainly farmers, with the intent of producing Copper Sulphate for agricultural use.. After the initial unsuccessful attempts to make this product, Gordon Martin bought 45% of the equity and restructured the company.. Subsequently, using mostly second-hand equipment, he optimised the production and invented a continuous crystallisation process, which allowed the manufacture of high quality Copper Sulphate.. The headquarters of Coogee Chemicals was built in Kwinana Beach, Western Australia, amidst other significant players, where it is still today.. The Copper Sulphate manufacturing plant was reconstructed in Kwinana Beach.. A new business opportunity soon arose to supply Sodium Silicate to Synthetic Rutile producers.. A Silicate manufacturing plant was designed and built; all raw material input streams are locally sourced.. At Kwinana Beach in Western Australia new facilities for Copper Sulphate and Sodium Silicate production were completed.. The first steps were taken to establish a tank terminal adjacent to the Kwinana Beach manufacturing facility.. To provide excellent service Coogee progressively built a logistics chain for Dangerous Goods.. The transport business began.. Aluminium Sulphate plant was commissioned to supply major water and waste water treatment customers.. Coogee designed and built a plant for the conversion of Copperas into Ferrous Sulphate Mono- and Heptahydrates.. A waste stream generated during the production of titanium dioxide is converted into a valuable saleable product.. Coogee, for the first time, imported caustic soda and molasses into the new terminal in Kwinana Beach.. Coogee Chemicals entered into a Joint Venture agreement with Wesfarmers CSBP and AIDC to manufacture liquid Sodium Cyanide at Kwinana Beach.. In 1988 the plant began producing cyanide solution - it was the first Cyanide manufacturing facility in Western Australia and it still is today.. Another Joint Venture opportunity arose, this time between Nufarm and Coogee.. The pigment manufacturers at Kemerton and Kwinana, Western Australia, required Chlorine, and the Joint Venture built 2 Chlor-Alkali plants to meet the demand.. Apart from Chlorine, these facilities also produce Caustic Soda, Sodium Hypochlorite and Hydrochloric Acid which are supplied into the Western Australian, industrial, mining and water treatment market.. A Joint Venture was established with Pride-Chem Singapore and Technogas Malaysia to produce Copper Oxide at Malaka, Malaysia.. The feedstock of Copper Oxide is a waste stream from the manufacture of Printed Circuit Boards.. Again, value-adding was achieved by converting a waste into a saleable valuable product.. In response to the need of local industry for input materials, Coogee developed a sodium aluminate solution process which delivers ready-made liquid reagent for use in the Pigment Industry.. With the purchase of Western Biotechnology Ltd.. from Roche, Coogee entered a completely new field of business, Biotechnology.. Now Coogee was involved in growing algae which produced a natural Beta-Carotene.. A Tank Terminal for the import, storage and supply of Sulphuric Acid was constructed in Port Hedland, Western Australia, to supply Copper heap leach projects in the Pilbara.. Coogee designed and constructed a continuous process granulation plant to supply trace element fertiliser into the agricultural industry.. A Sulphuric Acid Tank Terminal was constructed in Townsville, Queensland in Joint Venture with Lewer Corporation.. In 1995 Coogee entered into an agreement with a major Fuel Enterprise to store and manage its fuel requirements at Coogee's Kwinana Beach Terminal.. The Coogee Acid Terminal (CAT) with a 70,000 tonne  ...   Coogee is managing the Reagent Facility providing ready-made liquid reagents for the processing circuit.. The Sodium Cyanide plant was upgraded to enable the manufacture of Cyanide in solid form, which allowed access to the international market.. In 2003, an undeveloped oil field in the Timor Sea, as well as two operating fields, were purchased from BHP and Canadian Petroleum.. The oil and gas business was demerged from Coogee Chemicals into a separate entity, and established as Coogee Resources.. Agreements concluded acquiring each of BHP Petroleum's and Nexen's respective 50% interests in the AC/RL3 oil and gas fields to underpin a possible offshore floating Methanol project.. Subsequently, Coogee Resources acquired Newfield Exploration's Timor Sea assets including the oil fields Jabiru and Challis.. A second Liquid Xanthate plant was completed in Mt Isa, Queensland.. The output of the Molten Sulphur plant was expanded to include a new product, Sulphur-Bentonite, which has applications in the agricultural field.. A Super White Hydrate Plant, based on the precipitation of high purity alumina hydrate, was comissioned.. Super White Hydrate is used as a colourant and filler in the artificial marble industry.. This plant has subsequently been closed.. Coogee acquired Nufarm's interest in the Chlor-Alkali Joint Venture and is now the sole owner of 2 Chlor-alkali plants in Western Australia.. In 2010 Coogee purchased a fuel terminal from Gull Terminals West in Kwinana Beach.. This terminal site is located adjacent to our existing terminal facility, and after its integration, increased the storage capacity by 58 million litres.. A major expansion of the Chlor-Alkali plant in Kwinana was completed, doubling the production capacity and introducing new technology.. Coogee is now the owner of 3 Chlor-Alkali plants.. Coogee Chemicals entered into an agreement with CSIRO to further develop innovative technology involved in the production of Titanium.. Coogee acquired 100% ownership of the Tank Terminal in Townsville, Queensland.. At the Kwinana Beach Tank Terminal an additional 24 million litres of storage capacity were constructed.. The Port Hedland Terminal capacity was expanded by 27 million litres storage capacity for Sulphuric Acid allowing Coogee to sell both, acid and caustic soda to the Pilbara region.. A Dangerous Goods Storage Facility was constructed at Kwinana Beach to cater specifically for isotainer and container storage.. A new Copper Sulphate facility in Mt Isa was completed backed by a long-term contract from a local mine.. The new Tank Terminal for Sulphuric Acid storage, import and export was completed in Gladstone, Queensland.. After extensive upgrades and integration work, the Fuel Terminal at Kwinana Beach is now functioning as a world-class terminalling facility providing a fuel and chemical storage capacity of more than 150 Million litres.. The expansion of the Queensland business is progressing with the completion of a Sodium Hydrosulphide dissolving plant, a Dangerous Goods storage facility at Mount Isa, and entry into the caustic soda market from Gladstone.. In 2012, Coogee has acquired the Chlor-Alkali manufacturing business, Elite Chemicals, from GE Corporation.. The manufacturing facility is located at the port of Brisbane and produces Sodium Hypochlorite, Hydrochloric Acid and Caustic Soda for the water treatment industry and local industrial customers.. The business includes operational branches in Cairns, Townsville, Rockhampton, NSW and SA.. This acquisition provides a foot print for Coogee on the East Coast for the Chlor-Alkali business and will offer new business growth opportunities.. Respect.. Respect for ourselves guides our morals; respect for others guides our manners.. Laurence Sterne..

  • Title: From The Managing Director - Coogee Chemicals
    Descriptive info: Tim Martin.. Coogee Chemicals commenced operation in 1971 as a copper sulphate manufacturer in Western Australia.. Since then the company has grown and diversified into a group with core business divisions focused on chemical manufacture and related storage and handling, and terminal infrastructure management.. We have built our reputation around finding unique market opportunities where we can add value through the experience and technical expertise of our people.. This growth and success is founded on a quality and safety focus whilst developing and retaining key skill sets and competent staff that can move within the group.. Typically we focus on building in-house human resource capability and know-how rather than outsourcing or contracting related skill sets.. A philosophy of "opportunity through growth" and "step-out" initiatives to extend our core competencies has allowed us to control capital intensive projects from conception to execution.. It has also enabled us to move into disruptive research technologies including methanol fuel blending and titanium metal process manufacturing.. Our chemical manufacture is principally around industrial feedstock products such as chlorine, cyanide, caustic soda and methanol.. A cradle to grave approach to quality and service in our chemical division has allowed us to grow uniquely combined skill sets across these business units to include the transport, storage, and handling of commodity chemicals.. The  ...   Isotainer storage facilities at Kwinana and Mt Isa.. A sodium cyanide plant at Kwinana, Western Australia, for manufacture and distribution within Australia and for export overseas - operated as a Joint Venture with Wesfarmers/CSBP.. R D divisions that include Coogee Titanium (where we have partnered with CSIRO in developing a patented continuous process for titanium powder manufacture - TIROTM process), and our GEM (Gasoline, Ethanol, Methanol) blended fuel project being developed as a ‘drop in’ premium fuel for motor vehicles.. We operate in global markets where competition is fierce, yet we also believe that global change provides positive growth opportunities - not just for the largest multinationals, but also for competent, innovative and responsive companies that can offer technical and commercial solutions through collaboration and joint innovation.. We are focused on partnering with companies possessing not only the right capabilities and complementary skill sets but a culture of transparency and openness that drives mutual benefit in growth and opportunity.. This approach has allowed us to build business with partners and/or customers including BHP Billiton, CSIRO, Cristal, Caltex (Chevron), Huntsman, Methanex, Mobil, Shell, Sumitomo, Tronox, and Wesfarmers (CSBP).. The commitment of our people, our alliances with existing and new partners, and our focus on quality and service excellence remains critical to our future success.. Managing Director..
