INTERTERMINAL AND INSTALLATION PIPELINES
INTRODUCTION. This section provides guidance for
the design of pipelines. Military pipelines are typically
connect government installations, or installation pipelines
which connect POL facilities within an installation. The
primary differences are that interterminal pipelines cross
public and private properties, streets, highways, railroads,
and utility rights-of-way, whereas installation pipelines do
not. Interterminal pipelines may be dedicated lines
connecting two or more facilities or privately owned common
carrier lines serving several commercial or military shippers.
In some cases, the shipping facility may consist of a
relatively short spur which delivers the fuel to the suction
side of a pumping station which is part of the main line of a
larger pipeline system. Pipeline receiving and dispensing
facilities are normally part of a bulk fuel storage facility,
which is discussed in Section 3 of this handbook.
GENERAL REQUIREMENTS. Section 2, General Design
Information, contains important information on fueling
facilities. Do not start the design of any fueling system
without first becoming completely familiar with Section 2 of
Fuel Segregation. Clean products, such as diesel
fuel and distillate-type burner fuels, may be shipped in the
same system without segregation. Batches are separated by
for residual fuels. For DOD projects, provide a dedicated
pipeline for aviation turbine fuels.
Interterminal Regulations. The U.S. Department of
Transportation regulates the design, construction and
operation of interterminal pipelines for liquid petroleum.
Requirements are given in 49 CFR Part 195.
