Sub-Area Petroleum Officer

 

 

 

Just as the JPO is responsible for theater petroleum planning, the SAPO is responsible for bulk petroleum planning and execution matters within its operational area.  The SAPO consolidates and validates the bulk petroleum requirements for planning and support purposes and integrates them into appropriate plans and operations.  The SAPO uses consumption factors to determine and recommend stockage objectives.  He/she provides them to the JPO who then consolidates and provides to DLA Energy.

 

 

 

The JPO or SAPO develops a theater-unique version of the POLCAP and REPOL for their respective Service components and supporting DLA Energy regional office to use when reporting essential theater bulk petroleum information. They also publish the POLCAP and REPOL reporting instructions per their respective CCDR’s logistic reporting directives.  The JPO or SAPO consolidates the information to develop the REPOL for submission to the Joint Staff and supporting CCDRs using the Joint Chiefs of Staff Web-based REPOL application.

 

 

 

The JPO or SAPO develops the inland petroleum distribution plan (IPDP), which provides a single source document for understanding how the guidance provided in the CONPLANs or OPLANs will be executed. It provides the details necessary for Service commanders to understand how to interface with units, agencies, and firms providing petroleum support.

 

 

 

The theater normally has some HN assets available or theater support contracts (i.e., fuel sources, terminal facilities, pipelines, railways, and trucks) that should be used to the maximum extent possible to help offset US requirements. Because the capabilities of allies or coalition partners are theater unique, the JPO or SAPO is responsible for assessing these potential capabilities and integrating them into appropriate plans and operations.

 

 

 

The key duties and responsibilities of the SAPO include the following:

 

 

 

(1) Advise the JFC and staff on petroleum logistic planning and policy, and provide Service components and commands with the JFC’s petroleum logistic plans and policy.

 

 

 

(2) Prepare directives concerning the management, accountability, operation, and QA of petroleum activities in the operational area.

 

 

 

(3) Prepare petroleum input for JFC supporting plans and develop daily demand profiles and petroleum supply and distribution plans for OPLANs and OPORDs.

 

 

 

(4) Establish a direct LOC with the CCMD JPO concerning all aspects of petroleum activities.

 

 

 

(5) State bulk petroleum requirements through the CCMD JPO to DLA Energy to obtain sourcing from DOD stocks, local commercial, or host government resources using DLA Energy contractual coverage or service/country fuel agreements.

 

 

 

(6) Submit REPOL, as required, to the CCMD JPO.

 

 

 

(7) Assign JFC priorities and advise the CCMD JPO and DLA Energy for MILCON and SRM projects for petroleum facilities.

(9) Coordinate and advise the CCMD JPO concerning local petroleum capabilities.

 

 

 

(10) Establish JFC requirements and coordinate with the JPO and DLA Energy for leased storage and related activities in the operational area.

 

 

 

(11) Coordinate with the HN and local commercial entities to determine availability of commodity and capability to support bulk petroleum operational requirements; identify or submit requirements IAW current HNS agreements to the HN for petroleum support.

 

 

 

(12) Supervise bulk petroleum operations and coordinate with commercial sources and HN governments for the use of tanker loading and off-loading facilities.

 

 

 

(13) Coordinate with the DLA Energy, CCMD JPO, and Service component bulk petroleum managers to maintain visibility of bulk petroleum operations.

 

 

 

(14) Maintain operational petroleum delivery requirements from Service component petroleum managers to maintain visibility of bulk petroleum operations.

 

 

 

(15) Consolidate component delivery requirements and forward them to DLA Energy.

 

 

 

(16) Coordinate QA program activities.

 

(17) Advise the JFC, under emergency conditions, on the allocation of bulk petroleum and facilities, and coordinate with component control points.

 

(18) Recommend the release or reallocation of PWRS.

 

 

 

(19) Notify the JS J-4 and the CCMD JPO when PWRS will be penetrated and provide a plan for reconstitution of levels including a time frame when levels will be covered.

 

 

 

(20) Maintain thorough knowledge and understanding of JFC OPLANs and OPORDs, and component and supporting forces concepts of operations and support.  Generate the IPDP for each OPLAN/OPORD.

 

 

 

(21) Coordinate allocation and construction of inland petroleum distribution system assets.

 

 

 

(22) Track and account for all ground fuel movements in the area of operations to include deliveries to non-capitalized locations. The SAPO cannot complete this task unless a requirement for the SAPO to be notified of all completed deliveries, and of any diversions while enroute, is established. In the absence of an established SAPO the reporting requirements would remain at the JPO.

Our Roles

Quality assurance
Military petroleum products are usually procured under Federal or military specifications. Quality assurance is a contract administration function performed by the Government to determine if contractors have fulfilled contract requirements and specifications for petroleum products and related services. Quality assurance ends and quality surveillance begins when the quality assurance representative accepts the product. Acceptance of the product represents the transfer of ownership of the product from the contractor to the Government.
 
 
Quality surveillance
Quality surveillance includes all of the measures used to determine and maintain the quality of Government-owned petroleum products to the degree needed to ensure that the products are suitable for their intended use. The purpose of quality surveillance is to ensure that products meet quality standards after acceptance from the contractor and still meet those quality standards after the products are transferred between Government agencies or issued to users. Quality surveillance is complete when the product is consumed or transferred to another agency or service. Until the product is transferred or consumed, it is the responsibility of the owning service or agency to ensure product quality.
