Location:  The tanker terminal is located in position Lat. 45° 34′ N, Long. 013° 44′ E.
Port Limits:  The vessel is considered an ``arrived vessel'' when 2 n.m. from the Fairway Buoy (Lat. 45° 34′ N, Long. 013° 44′ E).
Documents:  The following documents are required on arrival for Clearance Inwards:
5 Crew Lists
2 Stores Lists

   Derat (Exemption) Certificate
Pilotage:  Compulsory for all vessels over 500 g.t. Vessels to contact the pilot station 24 hours before the vessel's ETA. The Pilot boards the vessel near the Fairway Buoy, whether the vessel is proceeding directly inwards or from the anchorage. The Pilot boards from a pilot boat, having blue hull and superstructure, displaying the standard Pilot International Code of Signals signal.

VHF:  The pilot boat and pilot station operate on Channels 16 and 8.
Mooring Operations:  Mooring/unmooring conducted throughout 24 hours. Tankers are always moored port side to. For mooring, the Pilot requires 3 tugs (forward/amidships/aft) if the vessel is more than 20,000 g.t. The fore and aft tugs are secured using ship's lines and tug's line for the tug amidships. If the vessel is less than 20,000 g.t., only two tugs are required. For unmooring, only two tugs are required. The tugs have adequate power for the operation.
Berthing:  Only one berth for tankers (see  Plan).
The approach to the jetty must be conducted with caution, and transversal speed be kept to a minimum. This is due to the jetties 2 lateral supports having many weak points. The berth's fenders are in a poor state of repair.
Loading/Discharging:  The Instalacija Terminal has three chiksans. Starting from aft (see Plan), they are 10, 12 and 10 in. The loading/discharging operations can be conducted by connecting any one of the chiksans to the ship's manifold, due to the chiksans all connecting to the same shore pipeline.
Upon the first grade being completed, the shore installation needs at least 2 hours to flush the shore line, after which the vessel can proceed to discharge the next grade of cargo.
The shore tanks are approx. 2,500 m. from berth. With back pressure of 7 kg. at the ship's manifold, the discharging rate achieved was 1,200 cu.m./hr. Vessels are required to provide an inert gas blanket if the vessel is fitted with an inert gas plant.
There is no shore steam facility or vapour return line available.
