The mission of the Basic Petroleum Logistics Division (BPLD) is to train soldiers and Marines to meet the worldwide petroleum requirements for the U.S.
(22)

Army and U.S. Marine Corps. Our course consists of ten weeks, one days of extensive hands on training on Army and Marine petroleum related equipment. Within this curriculum, we train sampling and gauging, military pipeline operations, accountability, tank vehicle operations, and sling loading. Two training sites make up the BPLD training area; Military in the Field (MIF) and the Petroleum Training Facility (PTF). Course Description:

Our course consists of ten weeks, one days of extensive hands-on training (75 percent) on U.S. Marine Corps petroleum-related equipment. Within this curriculum, we train over 3,500 soldiers and marines annually. During the training phase for the students, they are given extensive classroom and hands-on exposure to the equipment they will be operating at their permanent duty stations. This gives the students experience, knowledge, and confidence in their abilities for the day-to-day operations they will be handling upon graduation. The training subjects are covered in both classroom and a hands-on environment and include the following areas: Petroleum Supply Operations, Environmental Standards and Spill Contingency, Safety, Health Hazards, Fire Fighting and First Aid, Gravity and Visual Examination of Petroleum Products, Gauging and Sampling, Accountability, Aircraft Refueling Operations, Fuel System Supply Point Equipment and Operations, Petroleum Pipeline Equipment and Maintenance, Sling Load Operations, Operation of various Petroleum Fueling Vehicles, ROM and Railcars, Waterfront Operations, and Introduction to Marine Corps Bulk Fuel System.

General information

Mission: The mission of the Basic Petroleum Logistics Division (BPLD) is to provide initial petroleum training (technical and tactical) to Petroleum Supply Specialist (92F10), Advanced Individual Training (AIT), soldiers and marines to meet the worldwide petroleum needs of the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps. We provide these branches of service with all entry-level specialists in the petroleum field. History: Petroleum courses of instruction and facilities were established in the fall 1946 at Caven Point, New Jersey, under the jurisdiction of the New York Quartermaster Petroleum Field Office. The school was primarily staffed with instructors and highly qualified technical personnel from the petroleum fields of the Midwest. In July 1954 the Caven Point installation was phased out, moved to Fort Lee, Virginia, and became the Petroleum Department of the Quartermaster School. Facilities: Two training sites make up the Basic Petroleum Logistics Division training area; the Military in the Field (MIF) and the Petroleum Training Facility (PTF). These sites cover approximately 50 acres and provide the students with excellent facilities for hands-on training. MILITARY IN THE FIELD (MIF) The Military in the Field (MIF) site is where skill level training is conducted for enlisted and officer training. Students are trained in the use of current Army and Marine Corps equipment fielded to units throughout the world. Dispersed across this tactical field training site of 30 acres of forested land are numerous collapsible above ground storage tanks, 500 gallon collapsible drums, 7,500 through 1,050 gallon fuel trucks and semi-trailers, petroleum pumps, filter separators, assault hoseline, and aircraft refueling systems. These petroleum systems are completely mobile and can be delivered by road, sea, rail, and air. This training area emphasizes movement and mobility of the modern fighting force and the need to keep it constantly supplied with fuel. The various refueling vehicles are necessary for use with many of the systems (example: using the HEMTT with the HTARS system for aircraft refueling) or for transporting fuel from one facility (or temporary site) to another. The MIF has been designed and constructed to minimize the effects of product spills. Each collapsible tank that contains fuel is surrounded by an earthen d**e lined with a coated impermeable fabric material (berm liner) to contain oil and water. Spill kits are positioned throughout the training facility for use in containing and clean-up response to spill. The training area has approximately 2,500 feet of concrete-lined channel to divert runoff into a spill containment pond. The containment pond has approximate 30 minutes detention time, which is sufficient to allow oil/water separation. When spills occur contaminated soil and waste is collected and removed to a lined and covered metal dumpster for later incineration by a permitted thermal treatment facility. PETROLEUM TRAINING FACILITY (PTF) The Petroleum Training Facility (PTF) began groundwork in early August 1991. The laying of the Inland Petroleum Distribution System (IPDS) pipeline designed for lightweight rapid deployment is used at this facility which was began in August 1992 and was completed in October 1992. The Petroleum Training Facility (PTF) has many features and training aids to help in the familiarization of tank farm operations. The PTF covers over 14 acres and has 5.7 miles of pipeline, with a total capacity of over 44,000 gallons of pipeline fill. The total tankage capacity of the PTF is over 2.1 million gallons (50 Mbbls) of storage in 11 tanks. There are four terminals; Base, Intermediate, Head and Depot. Each terminal is equipped with two (2) 1,250 gpm pumps and, with the exception of the Head terminal, each have the commercial 700 gpm Filter Separator installed. Each terminal has it's own set of storage tanks. The Base terminal has two storage tanks equipped with 15 hatches for gauging and sampling. All terminals except for the Intermediate terminal have a 600 gpm strainer/meter assembly. The Depot terminal has three (3) 10,000 gallon rail tank cars that can be used for loading and unloading operations. There are two pump stations, each with two (2) 800 gpm pump strainers and equipped with two (2) launcher and two (2) receivers assembly for pipeline scraper operations. The facility is also equipped with a simulated underground storage tank to give the idea of what one looks like. There are simulation pads for the 800 gpm pump, 1,250 gpm pump and 600 gpm pump. The pump simulation modules are for the students to train on before using the pumps on line. The facility is designed to be environmentally safe. The main source of containment is the berms, which hold 125% of the fuel capacity in the tanks. All steel tanks in this facility are set-up on cement donuts with a thick, polyurethane liner under the cement berm. If the tank develops a leak from underneath, the fuel will leak into the donut and out through drainpipes within the donut. The secondary source of containment is the pond, which is also lined with polyurethane to prevent fuel from escaping into the ground. The pond is designed to hold 125% of the fuel from the largest tank (420,000 gallon) under the worst climate conditions. Large black Tees at the end of the pond let water out and keep the fuel in.
