Our History

  • 1931

    The Beginning

    The story of Energy Infrastructures began in the 1930s, during the British Mandate period in the Land of Israel. The British government, then the ruler of the Land of Israel, saw economic and strategic importance in the Haifa Port area, destined to serve as a point-of-origin for exporting oil and oil distillates to the UK.

    In 1931, an agreement was signed between the British High Commissioner in the Land of Israel and the Iraq Petroleum Company (I.P.C) to transfer crude oil via underground pipeline from Iraq through the Transjordan to Haifa, to be exported from there via tankers.

    Laying Infrastructures and Storage System Establishment

    I.P.C completed laying the underground petroleum pipeline section from Kirkuk, Iraq, to Haifa, in parallel to establishing an oil refinery in Haifa through another company.

    These activities formed the basis for the establishment of an extensive infrastructure in the Haifa Bay area for crude oil and petroleum distillat purposes, including: distillate export port, connectors to export crude oil, and storage facilities integrated with a system of petroleum lines. This infrastructure, for the most part, is still used by Energy Infrastructures.

    Arab League Boycott of Israel

    In light of the Arab League’s boycott which led the British to withdraw from their operations in Israel, the Israeli government established a governmental company called “Petroleum Services”, which replaced the British-owned company and operated its infrastructures for the state.

    With time and following the country’s economic development, the need for petroleum increased, along with the need for developing the petroleum infrastructure in the central and southern regions, where the economic and industrial center of gravity had taken hold. To meet the varying needs, the company increased its storage capacity, expanded its distribution lines, and established new petroleum terminals, ports, and distribution terminals. Over the years, an essential petroleum infrastructure meant to serve state needs has been deployed along and across the country.

    Israel’s Executive Agency

    Over the years, the company has placed itself as the leading infrastructure company in Israel’s petroleum and energy sector, and changed its name from "Petroleum Services Company Ltd." to "Petroleum and Energy Infrastructures Company Ltd."

    The company regularly and professionally analyzes the state of the petroleum industry both locally and globally, climate state, environmental quality, and cross global changes that are taking place in front of us, and has had the foresight to know that petroleum and fossil sources would no longer be “the kings of energy”, and the race to find alternatives has started. The company’s strategic plan specifies the examination of, preparation for, and penetration into new channels and operations in innovative energy. As a result, the company’s name has been updated to Energy Infrastructures Ltd.

    Promoting the Israeli Energy Sector’s Future

    As part of the company’s strategic plan and in light of the targets set by the State of Israel for reducing use of fossil fuels, over the coming years Energy Infrastructures will develop and promote the energy storage field using renewable green hydrogen and alternative and innovative technologies, all to ensure the continuous supply of Israel’s future energy needs and protection of energetic security and continuity in both routine and emergency situations.
