Tactical Petroleum Terminal (TPT). The mission of the TPT is to receive, store, and dispense liquid
fuel, specifically JP-8, motor gasoline, and aviation jet fuel (Figure 2-5). It serves as a base terminal in an
undeveloped theater and can be used in the developed theater to supplement existing facilities that are
inadequate or damaged. The TPT was designed to operate at a maximum allowable operating pressure of
150 psi. The standard TPT has a storage capacity of 3,700,000 gallons in eighteen 5,000-barrel (210,000
gallons) collapsible fabric tanks. The TPT is modular with three identical fuel units. Each TPT also has one
pipeline connection assembly. The total TPT is stored in 77 ISO containers.
The fuel unit consists of three tank farm assemblies, with two 5,000-barrel fabric tanks each, a tanker-
truck receipt manifold, a fuel dispensing assembly, a transfer hoseline assembly, six fire suppression
assemblies, a 50,000-gallon optional tank configuration, and a fuel unit support assembly. A total of 24 ISO
containers is used to store one fuel unit (minimum 600' between units).
Tank farm assembly. Consists of two 5,000-bbl fabric tanks, a hoseline pump, and associated hose,
valves and fittings; a total of three containers for each assembly (at least 400' between assemblies).
