Like all the vehicles on the road, the Army National Guard can't run without fuel. And it's the Petroleum Supply Specialist who makes sure we keep moving. As an Army National Guard Petroleum Supply Specialist you will ensure the proper handling, storage, and shipment of petroleum-based products, such as oil, fuel, and compressed gas. These are skills you will learn that could lead to a rewarding civilian career with oil refineries, pipeline companies, and tanker truck and ship lines.
Petroleum Supply Specialists primarily supervise and manage the reception, storage, and shipping of bulk or packaged petroleum products. This may include operating specialized pumping equipment to load trucks, ships, trains, and aircraft; selecting and submitting samples of petroleum-based products for testing; performing petroleum and water accounting activities; testing petroleum samples for contamination; repairing specialized equipment; and being knowledgeable about facility safety procedures and storage guidelines.
As your skills increase, so will your responsibilities. Advanced Petroleum Supply Specialists take on management duties, such as supervising and training other Soldiers, assigning duties and spot checking work quality, and assuring adherence to safety procedures.
