In today's Army, our mission is to provide the right amount of fuel, at the right place and at the right time to
meet all of the fuel requirements of all internal and external fuel operations. It is imperative to conduct an
environmental assessment prior to beginning fuel operations. The unit environmental officer coordinates with the
EPA representative, the unit petroleum officer, and the environmental regulators to make an assessment of the
petroleum operation. This assessment is used to determine how the petroleum operation will affect the wildlife
and local population within the unit's area of operation. Environmental compliance officers use the results from
the assessment to verify whether or not the petroleum operation is IAW the prescribed environmental compliance.
The unit environmental officer works with the following personnel: the environmental compliance officer, the
EPA officer, the unit petroleum officer, and environmental regulators. As with any operation, the unit
environmental officer must emphasize spill prevention.
