The German Chemical Parks are interconnected via numerous pipelines, as well as being linked to neighboring countries. This exceptionally well developed network of pipelines connects the Chemical Parks to the European transshipment centres for mineral oil, natural gas and naphtha. Pipeline connections with Mediterranean and North Sea ports and with Russia ensure stable supplies of crude oil and natural gas from various sources. The Chemical Parks also obtain ethylene and propylene via pipeline connections. Pipelines for hydrogen, carbon monoxide and specialized gases link the parks to each other.
