Petroleum System Services

Tetra Tech’s Petroleum Systems Services Group provides engineering and design services to support planning, construction, and sustainment of petroleum systems.

Tetra Tech collaborates with our clients to mitigate risks, minimize costs, and maximize the operational efficiency and sustainability of fixed fueling infrastructure. Our Petroleum System Services Group seeks innovative solutions to complex problems by employing standard code compliant designs and construction methodologies to minimize impact to operations and maximize mission support capability. Our best-value focus incorporates in-depth requirements analysis, accurate cost estimating, and professional on- and off-site services, resulting in the efficient provision of cradle-to-grave petroleum system services and projects.

Tetra Tech provides engineering and design services supporting planning, construction, and sustainment of defense petroleum systems. We have executed petroleum, oil, and lubricants (POL) system projects both within the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS). Our engineering and design support staff are intimately familiar with the U.S. and international standards applicable to military fueling systems and experienced with code requirements associated with the design, construction oversight, and environmental requirements.

Our knowledge of the Unified Facilities Criteria, Unified Facilities Guide Specifications, U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) POL fueling system standard designs, and prevailing industry codes, coupled with our knowledge of state and local codes, enables us to respond effectively and efficiently regardless of the POL project location.

Fixed Military Fueling System Support

Tetra Tech has provided Defense Logistics Agency Energy-sponsored Sustainment, Restoration and Modernization (SRM) program services at more than 300 U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force sites. Our petroleum system services team includes more than 500 specialized engineers and POL systems experts versed in requirements and unique challenges associated with military fueling systems. Services are provided through multiple contracts with the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force and the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Schedules.

Engineering, Design, and Inspections

Tetra Tech leverages our staff of multidisciplinary engineers and fuel systems inspectors to support the delivery of code compliant design documents and facility assessment and inspection reports. We have delivered more than 1,000 design documents, system assessments, and component inspection reports to our defense clients.

Planning Studies

Our engineers and industry-certified inspectors assess DoD POL facilities throughout the CONUS and OCONUS. Our staff engineers provide detailed reports outlining required and recommended repair actions to extend system life cycles, facilitate systems master planning, and deliver design services for follow-on minor repair and minor construction actions.

SRM Projects and Emergent Requirements

Tetra Tech has designed and constructed more than $400 million in POL systems and facility SRM projects supporting planned and emergent upgrades to fixed fueling systems and supporting infrastructure involving mechanical fueling, hazardous and non-hazardous electrical, structural/civil, and industrial coatings trades and disciplines. Our experienced engineers; project managers; fueling systems subject matter experts; quality and safety managers; and construction, schedule, and cost control managers are adept in delivering high-quality projects on schedule.
