A New Storage Terminal for LPG and Oil Products in Albania, a Gateway to the Balkans.

La Petrolifera Italo Albanese Sh.A. (PIA) operates a coastal terminal for LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gases), Oil, its by products (Diesel, Gasoline etc.) and additional liquid and dry products in the Bay of Vlora.

The new coastal terminal fills a lack of infrastructures and allows Customers to supply both the Albanian market and the neighbouring Countries through the European Corridor VIII (rail plus road) also taking advantage of the favourable location of the Bay of Vlora, located at the entrance of the Adriatic Sea and very close to the main Italian and Greek refineries (distances from Vlora in nautical miles: 125 to Taranto, 275 to Falconara, 290 to Augusta / Priolo / Milazzo, 340 to Gela, 480 to Corinth, 570 to Sarroch).
