of fuel, i.e., 1 = MOGAS, 2 = DF2, 3
= JP4. The second number would be
the number of shipments of that type
of fuel that have been shipped this
fiscal year; i.e., 1st shipment = 1;
2d shipment = 2. Batch 1-14 would be
the 14th shipment of MOGAS. Once the
dispatcher has set up the schedule,
a pumping order is made each day and
sent to all pipeline areas.
Daily pumping orders.
The dispatcher issues daily pumping orders to
pump station and terminal operators. Pumping orders include:
Type of fuel.
Destination of each batch.
Amount of fuel in batch.
Estimated size of interface.
Estimated times of arrival of interface at terminals.
Starting and stopping times of all pumping operations.
Type of interface to cut.
Pipeline pump station pressures and pipeline flow rates.
PART E - SITE SELECTION AND PLANNING
When conducting a site and route reconnaissance, you must have two known
points; where the fuel source is or will be located and where the forces
will be located requiring support.
Site and route selection.
A survey using a topographic map must first
be conducted and a profile of the best trace made. Using the profile and
the hydraulic limitations of the pumps, mark the pipeline trace and the
required locations for pump stations. When conducting the physical
must be used to indicate the actual path of the pipeline. Location of
valves, anchors, expansion/contraction devices and any obstacles must be
marked on the trace. Actual pump station locations can be adjusted
somewhat from the ideal locations selected from the profile and hydraulic
analysis. But every effort should be made to locate pump stations within
2,000 feet of their ideal locations.
After the site has been selected, a preliminary plot plan
should be made that shows all the major equipment and system locations,
after review and corrections made to the plot plan, roadways and berm
construction can begin according to the plan.
Pump station. A space of 140 feet by 85 feet is ideal, especially if
it's flat. Pumps must be positioned for access in case one needs to be
replaced during operation. This requires at least 50 feet to the rear
of pumps and should be 10 feet off the road. Stake anticipated
location of the inlet and outlet piping about 95 feet from the edge of
the road with 140 feet between stakes to align the incoming and the
Tank farm assembly. Should be located to provide wide spacing between
fuel units and to provide fire protection and suppression. Tank farm
assemblies within a fuel unit should be at least 400 feet apart. There
should be a minimum of 600 feet between fuel units.
