Compulsory emergency reserves storage: bolstering supply security
RAG Exploration & Production (RAG E&P) operates tank farms in Kremsmünster (Upper Austria) and Zistersdorf (Lower Austria) with a combined capacity of around 260,000 tonnes of crude oil. These facilities help to safeguard security of supply in Austria. Both sites have environmentally-friendly connections to pipelines and the rail network. The tanks are approved storage facilities in accordance with section 5 of the Austrian Oil Stockholding and Reporting Act. They are not only used to store oil that RAG produces; we also offer capacity to our customers, providing short-term and long-term storage of legally required compulsory emergency reserves.
RAG’s tank farms are equipped with state-of-the-art safety and environmental installations. They make a vital contribution to securing Austria’s energy supplies in case of shortages.
