Transalpine Pipeline Route
The TAL network is 753 km long and runs across Italy, Austria and Germany, connecting the Port of Trieste with the German Länder of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. The oil tankers dock at the two piers of the Marine Terminal in the Port of Trieste, where the crude oil is unloaded and moved to the Tank Farm in San Dorligo della Valle (Trieste). The pipeline then runs across Friuli Venezia Giulia, three States in Austria (Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol) and Bavaria to reach the Tank Farm in Lenting, near Ingolstadt. Two branches, one eastbound and the other heading north-west deliver the oil to the German refineries.
