SIOT - Società italiana per l’Oleodetto Transalpino S.P.A.

SIOT Marine Terminal is located in the Bay of Muggia in the Gulf of Trieste and is the starting point of the TAL system: with an average of 35 million tons of crude oil being unloaded every year, it represents 75% of the traffic of the Port of Trieste, and is the busiest oil terminal in Italy and, after Marseilles, the second busiest in the Mediterranean. Each oil tanker which docks at the marine terminal has a significant economic impact on the local area.

Crude oil is unloaded at the piers of the marine terminal and passes through four transfer lines to the tank farm of San Dorligo della Valle.

The San Dorligo tank farm, where the crude oil is stored and handled, is located in the south-east of the industrial area of Trieste.

The tank farm contains the head office, the control room and the first of four pumping stations located along the pipeline in Italy. The other three are to be found in the municipalities of Reana del Rojale, Cavazzo Carnico and Paluzza in the Province of Udine.
