The Chairman of the CLH Group, José Luis Lopez de Silanes, met today in Toledo with the President of the Regional Government of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano García-Page,  and the Regional Minister of Economy, Companies and Employment, Patricia Franco to tell them about the company's main activities and latest investments in the Region.

CLH has two storage facilities in Castilla-La Mancha located in the municipalities of Alcázar de San Juan and Almodóvar del Campo, and three oil pipeline installations in Almodóvar del Campo, Poblete and Mora de Toledo, which ensure the proper functioning of the network and supply oil products to the country.

The oil pipeline network in Castilla-La Mancha is 765 kilometres long. This network is part of the Rota-Zaragoza oil pipeline and is connected to the refinery that operates in Puertollano.  Another branch connecting to the town of Mérida in Extremadura also starts at the installation of Almodóvar del Campo.

Over the past ten years, the company has invested about 49 million euros in the Region of Castilla-La Mancha. These investments have been primarily intended for the construction of a storage facility in Almodóvar del Campo, expanding the capacity of the facility in Alcázar de San Juan, and for various improvements in infrastructure operation and security systems in the Region.

Throughout 2015, the company supplied Castilla-La Mancha with more than 2 million cubic meters of fuel through the different oil companies operating in the Region, to meet end-user demand.
