Investments in pipeline and storage assets provide Gunvor with the logistical flexibility to efficiently place different crude grades into various markets, enabling us to quickly take advantage of arbitrage opportunities.

Pipelines & Storage
Transalpine (TAL) Pipeline
Gunvor has a minority stake in the Transalpine Pipeline (TAL). This is of strategic importance in securing supplies to the land-locked Gunvor Refinery Ingolstadt in Germany. The 753-kilometer pipeline connects the Port of Trieste in Italy (via Italy, Austria and Germany) to the German states of Bavaria and Baden-Württemberg. TAL is managed to ensure that each refinery connected to it receives the required quality and quantity of oil at the scheduled times.
Petroterminal de Panama
Gunvor holds a minority stake in Petroterminal de Panama. The company’s primary asset is a pipeline with a 600,000 barrels per day throughput capacity that links the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. There are also storage locations at both ends of the pipeline with a total of around 9 million barrels split approximately equally between the two coasts. The pipeline offers a shortcut for crude cargoes around Latin America and an alternative to the Panama Canal. It gives us increased sourcing opportunities, a market presence in the Americas and access to additional storage capacity.
