The chairman of the CLH Group, José Luis López de Silanes, met today in Seville with the regional minister of employment, business and commerce of the Andalusian government, José Sánchez Maldonado, to explain the activities that the company carries out in the region and its infrastructures.
CLH manages nine storage facilities in Andalusia, located in Cordoba, Seville, Huelva, Rota, Algeciras, San Roque, Malaga, Motril and Arahal.

The pipeline network managed by the company in Andalusia is the largest in Spain, at 870 kilometres in length. The network is also connected to the two refineries that operate in the region and one of its main branches is part of the Rota-Zaragoza pipeline, which runs diagonally across the Iberian Peninsula and ensures hydrocarbon supply to the Central area of the country.

The CLH Group is also present in Andalusia through its subsidiary CLH Aviación at Cordoba, Seville, Jerez, Almeria and Malaga airports. This latter airport is equipped with a modern hydrant network under the runway parking area, making it possible for aircraft to be refuelled without using tanker vehicles.

In 2015, the company supplied the Andalusian region with over 7 million cubic metres of fuel to the different oil product operators with activities in the region to meet end user demand.
