SCOPE. This military handbook, MIL-HDBK-1022A,
design and construction of military land-based facilities
which receive, store, distribute, or dispense liquid fuels.
It is also applicable to the handling of liquefied petroleum
gases (LPG) and compressed natural gas (CNG). It provides
fueling facilities. Support facilities are also included.
Facility Plate No. 001 provides assistance in identifying
handbook section numbers for specific fueling components.
USE OF HANDBOOK. The guidance contained in this
handbook is intended for use by facility planners, engineers,
and architects for individual project planning and for
preparing engineering and construction documentation. In
addition, it is intended for use by operations and maintenance
personnel as a guidance document for facility design,
modifications, and improvements.
PURPOSE OF CRITERIA. These criteria, except
Sections 12, 13, and 14 of this handbook, are intended for new
construction only and do not apply retroactively to facilities
existing at the time this handbook was issued. However, these
criteria, including Sections 12, 13, and 14, are applicable
when modernizing or expanding existing facilities if the
improvements can be justified in terms of obsolescence,
compliance, or excessive maintenance costs.
CANCELLATION. This handbook, MIL-HDBK-1022A, dated
01 November 1999, cancels and supersedes MIL-HDBK-1022 dated
30 June 1997.
DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE (DOD) FUELS FACILITY
ENGINEERING PANEL. This handbook establishes the DOD Fuels
Facility Engineering Panel. This ad hoc group is to be an
association of recognized petroleum, oils, and lubricants
(POL) experts, primarily from the engineering community, to
advise the Services on ways to provide safe, operationally
effective, and economic fueling systems. The panel will
investigate, develop, and recommend standardization of
facilities, equipment, and procedures for storage,
distribution, and dispensing systems for aircraft, marine, and
