A short documentary, produced by the Israeli Film Service about the laying of the Trans Israel Pipeline. The film was produced under the auspices of the Eilat Ashkelon Pipeline Company and TAHAL.
After 18 months of work, one of the most important engineering projects in the history of Israel comes to a close: the laying of a 254 kilometer long pipeline between the Port of Eilat and the oil port in Ashkelon. The purpose: creating a landbridge to transport oil from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean – independently of the Suez Canal. This film follows the complex undertaking, which took place both in the desert and at sea.
