1. (S) Mission Vienna has identified the following CI/KR
sites in Austria:

--Baxter AG, Vienna, Austria: Immune Globulin Intravenous
(IGIV)

--Octapharma Pharmazeutika, Vienna, Austria: Immune Globulin
Intravenous (IGIV)

--Baumgarten an der March gas facility


2. (S) The two medical plants produce IGIV antibodies for
patients with immune deficiencies. The Baumgarten gas
facility is located about 30km east of Vienna. Approximately
one-third of Western Europe's gas from Russia flows through
Baumgarten, which is operated by the Austrian oil/gas company
OMV. When completed, the Nabucco pipeline from eastern
Turkey will terminate in Baumgarten.


3. (U) The Ministry of Interior holds primary responsibility
for CI protection. Individual regions can also request
protection from the Ministry of Defense if it is deemed
necessary. Companies with CI/KR contract security to private
firms.
