This publication, Army Techniques Publication ATP 4-43 Petroleum Supply Operations August 2015, is the United States Army reference for commanders, staff personnel, and Soldiers performing petroleum storage and distribution operations. ATP 4-43 expands the discussion of basic petroleum operations introduced in FM 4-40, Quartermaster Operations, and petroleum distribution discussed in ATP 4-93, Sustainment Brigade. Combined with these publications, ATP 4-43 provides the reader with an understanding of petroleum supply operations to include greater fidelity and detailed techniques for operations. ATP 4-43 combines the previous version of ATP 4-43 with information from FM 10-67-1. The additions to this manual include information and techniques for petroleum tank car, class III supply point, aircraft refueling, waterfront and pipeline and terminal operations. ATP 4-43 contains four chapters and 24 appendices: Chapter 1 provides a brief discussion of the fundamentals of petroleum supply. It also gives the reader an understanding of the Army’s role in petroleum supply in a theater of operations, in organizations at brigade and echelons-above-brigade, and its mission and responsibilities, without duplicating the information found in sustainment ADPs, ADRPs, and FMs. Chapter 2 introduces petroleum distribution systems and equipment to provide the reader with a basic understanding of the Army’s capability to accomplish its petroleum distribution mission and requirements. Chapter 3 provides information on petroleum properties; health and safety aspects of petroleum handling to include grounding, bonding, fire prevention, environmental considerations, first aid and personal protective equipment. Chapter 4 provides the reader with basic understanding of Army petroleum operations. This chapter includes accountability and distribution measures and the application of the various petroleum systems and equipment. It also gives the reader and understanding of quality surveillance and assurance requirements as well as the handling of petroleum packaged products. ATP 4-43 provides techniques to accomplish petroleum supply operations. The principal audience for ATP 4-43 is personnel of all grades and levels performing in petroleum supply positions. It is also applicable to personnel assigned to operational commands and staffs and provides both of these groups with information necessary to conduct effective petroleum supply operations. Furthermore, ATP 4-43 provides information pertinent to multi-service partners and to units that must interact with multi-service partners. Commanders and staffs of Army headquarters serving as joint task force or multinational headquarters should also refer to applicable joint or multinational doctrine concerning the range of military operations and joint or multinational forces.
