Petroleum Bonds — a flexible alternative

A petroleum bond is a form of surety bond and is essentially an alternative to a bank guarantee.

Petroleum bonds are used to support obligations under a supply/distribution/carrier agreement to provide security against default or nonperformance.

Benefits of a petroleum bond include:

  • A flexible alternative that can operate alongside traditional banking facilities
  • A simple, cost effective means of meeting security obligations to suppliers
  • A facility that does not usually require collateral security, thereby deleveraging balance sheets

Gallagher is an approved Standard & Poors rated surety provider by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA).
