Related news

Chemical cluster in Tarragona consists of the south and north poles, which are linked to the nearby port via road and pipeline. The main raw material –crude oil and natural gas- are all imported. Natural gas is imported in the form of LNG and then processed in several gasification facilities along the coast around Barcelona and Cartagena. Natural gas is also provided via the Trans Pyrenean pipeline link Calahorra from Lacq in France, and from the Maghreb-Europe Gas pipeline from Argelia to Spain. Crude oil is provided by ship from various sources to several terminals. The Tarragona cluster is linked to the Spanish natural gas distribution network.
