Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Alessandra Moretti
 Subject: The SIOT-TAL pipeline

The SIOT-TAL company plays a key role in the energy supply for several central European countries.

The crude oil is processed in the municipality of San Dorligo della Valle - Dolina. This activity has an extremely negative impact on the surrounding environment and, accordingly, on the quality of life of the local inhabitants.

Among the EU projects of common interest is one called the ‘TAL Plus pipeline’, which provides for a 100% increase in the capacity of the TAL pipeline between Trieste and Ingolstadt.

With regard to this, can the Commission answer the following questions:

Will any new crude oil storage tanks be built, i.e. is any expansion of the current storage area being planned?

Does the plan to upgrade the pipeline include an increase in its capacity towards Ingolstadt? If so, what technical solution will be adopted: will the diameter of the existing pipes be increased? Will a new underground pipeline be installed?

How will the increase in the oil pipeline capacity affect the flow of crude oil through the tanks, i.e. what will be the average increase in the daily flow of crude oil?

What containment measures have been included in the plan in order to mitigate the environmental impact, in particular that of emissions (including unpleasant smells) from the storage and pumping of crude oil?
