Figure 2-5. Tactical Petroleum Terminal.
Pipeline Connection Assembly. The pipeline connection assembly is required if fuel is to be
received from or issued to pipeline. The total assembly is stored in four containers and three Tricons.
Switching manifold. Allows the TPT to be connected to the pipeline and controls the fuel flow in, out, and
within the TPT (one container).
Contaminated fuel module. Consists of two 50,000-gallon collapsible fabric tanks used to hold
contaminated fuel for blending or disposal and a transfer pump to load tanker-trucks (one container).
Fire suppression assembly. Main component (one container).
Pipeline connection support assembly. Contains additional ISIL items, one aviation petroleum test kit,
one hoseline suspension kit, one displacement and evacuation kit, and two hoseline installation and
repair kits (one container).
Special assemblies are available to aid in the total system construction and interface.
Beach interface. The beach interface is an assembly of adapters to connect IPDS to OPDS. It also
allows access to the pipeline for shore-based forces (for example US Marines).
Pipeline support equipment (PSE). The basis of allocation is one set of pipeline support equipment
per 100 miles of pipeline to be installed. The assembly contains those items required to assist in the
construction and operation of a pipeline. PSE will accompany each deployed pipeline segment (five
containers). Equipment includes:
Two wheel mounted hoseline pumps (600 GPM) used as source pumps if the pipeline receives fuel from
Two cutting and grooving machines for cutting of pipeline and pump station nipples.
Four hydraulic drive heads for anchor installation.
Two tapping machines for tapping into a pipeline in order to drain a portion of the line. Usually needed
when required to repair a leak.
A deadweight tester used to calibrate gages.
Five additional elbow sets.
Tool kits with pump alignment tools.
