2 Art Art Business Business Computers Computers Criminal Justice Criminal Justice Program Management Program Management Contracting Contracting Aviation Aviation Health Providers Health Providers Fire Fighters Fire Fighters Many, many more… Many, many more… Fields Offering Certification Any notable fields missing? The Fuel Handler

3 Operators Maintainers Quality Specialists Petroleum Analyst Petroleum Accountant Programmer Manager Supervisor Controller Transporter The mechanic who inspects, troubleshoot and repair the systems and equipment The storage attendant who receives, stores and issues the fuel The laboratory technician who samples/tests the fuel The fuel system and equipment operators If you work in and around Petroleum? = Fuel Handler Who is the Fuel Handler? Fuel Handler is the generic name of the person anywhere in the fuel supply chain, from wellhead to wingtip

4 Consider: Gals of fuel received, stored, issued each day Gals of fuel received, stored, issued each day Number of flights each day…. Number of flights each day…. Number of passengers on those flights Number of passengers on those flights Potential for loss of life, equipment, peace of mind Potential for loss of life, equipment, peace of mind What Certification Does: Promotes safety Promotes safety Enhances technical knowledge Enhances technical knowledge Improves quality Improves quality Encourages professionalism in the workplace Encourages professionalism in the workplace Safety, Knowledge, Quality……..Professionalism Why Petroleum Certification?

5 What NPMA Offers Five Petroleum Certification Levels Five Petroleum Certification Levels Apprentice (CPA) Apprentice (CPA) Journeyman (CPJ) Journeyman (CPJ) Specialist (CPS) Specialist (CPS) Craftsman (CPC) Craftsman (CPC) Certified Petroleum Professional (CPP) Certified Petroleum Professional (CPP) Online course for initial certification Online course for initial certification Consolidation of current education, training, and experience Consolidation of current education, training, and experience Education, Training, Experience = Certification Level Certification Level ExperienceEducationTraining

6 How it Works 1.Enroll (online or at NPMA booth) 2.Complete initial certification course 3.Provide education, training, experience history 4.NPMA Education Review Committee/Board identifies starting point 5.Earn additional Continuing Education Units (CEU) 6.Apply for next certification level 7.Successfully pass each level certification test 8.Achieve Certified Petroleum Professional status Enroll, establish initial certification level, earn CEUs

7 Continuing Education Units Gained for experience Gained for experience 5 per year (maximum 10 years) 5 per year (maximum 10 years) Formal education petroleum-related college courses Formal education petroleum-related college courses 2 per credit hour 2 per credit hour Petroleum training courses Petroleum training courses Depends on courseroughly 1 per 10 hours of instruction Depends on courseroughly 1 per 10 hours of instruction Leadership education and training Leadership education and training 1 per 3 credits or 1 per 20 hrs of instruction 1 per 3 credits or 1 per 20 hrs of instruction Maximum for level 5 set at 34 CEU equivalents Maximum for level 5 set at 34 CEU equivalents Not a degree--focus on petroleum operations

11 Certification Course Overview Safety Environmental Various Fuels Fuel Properties Quality Pipeline Systems Hardware

12 The fuel handling business can be summed up with three very simple Rules Dont spill it Dont contaminate it Dont run out of it The safety module will introduce you to some basic concepts that will help you build a foundation for understanding safety principles when working in and around the fuels environment Safety Module Purpose

13 Fire Triangle Fire Extinguishers Classes of Fires Fire Hazards Volatility Boiling Point Vapor Pressure Flash Point Fire Point Flammability Autoignition Flame Spread Fuel Handling Static Electricity Fuel Spills Confined Spaces Toxicity Personal Protective Equipment Head Protection Eye Protection Hearing Protection PPE Maintenance Federal Hazardous Communication Safety Module Overview

14 The fire triangle /combustion triangle is a simple model for understanding the ingredients necessary for most fires. The triangle illustrates a fire requires three elements: An oxidizing agent (usually oxygen) A heat source Fuel, something that will burn A fire naturally occurs when the elements are combined in the right mixture. Fire can be prevented or extinguished by removing any one of the three elements. Fire Triangle

15 There are a number of ways to remember the basics of how to operate a fire extinguisher to put out a fire and one of them is to think PASS. P - Pull the safety pin A - Aim at the base of the fire S - Squeeze the handle to release the extinguisher contents S - Sweep in a side to side motion at the base of the fire Fire Extinguishers

16 Materials are put into different classes and fire extinguishers are matched to the various fire classes listed below: Class A fire: Ordinary combustibles such as wood, paper, carton, textile, and PVC Class B fire: Flammable liquid or gaseous fuels such benzene, gasoline, oil, butane, propane, and natural gas Class C fire: Involving energized electrical equipment, often caused by short circuits or overheated electrical cables Class D fire: Combustible metals, such as iron, aluminum, sodium, and magnesium Class K fire: Containing a fat element, such as cooking oil You wouldnt use a chainsaw to cut your toe nails and you certainly dont want to use the wrong type of fire extinguisher to fight a petroleum fire! Classes of Fires

17 Boiling Point is the temperature at which a liquid actively starts to vaporize. The higher the volatility, the lower the boiling point temperature. The higher the volatility… (easier the fuel turns to a vapor) The lower the boiling point temperature of the fuel Boiling Point

18 Fire Point refers to the lowest temperature at which liquids give off sufficient vapors when mixed with air to support combustion. The fire point is higher than its flash point. For a continuous fire, a products fire point must be reached. Fire point is generally about 5 - 10 degrees higher than flash point Example: Jet A Fire Point: ~ 110 o F Jet A Flash Point: ~ 100 o F Retro Look from the War Department Fire Point

19 Fuel is not our only concern, clothing is a common source of this danger; silk, polyester, wool and nylon garments should be avoided as they are prominent generators of static electricity. In addition, shoes or boots that have steel taps or hobnails should not be worn, as they can cause sparks on concrete and asphalt surfaces. Generating Static Electricity

20 Now that you are familiar with the most common petroleum based jet fuels, the next section will discuss fuels made from alternative sources other than petroleum and will include those commonly used in applications on the ground such as those used to power vehicles. An acre of algae can produce 50 times more oil than an acre of soy, and this oil can be used to make bio- diesel or synthetic forms of petroleum or both Alternative Fuel Sources

21 ASTM D7566, originally approved in September 2009 governs standards for Aviation Turbine Fuel Containing Synthesized Hydrocarbons (SPK) and Hydrotreated Renewable Jet Fuel (HRJ) Fuels produced to this specification may contain up to a 50% blend of SPK or HRJ. The blended SPK or HRJ is then certified to ASTM D1655. Once the blended fuel is certified to ASTM D1655, there will be no reference to ASTM D7566 (an airline will not be able to tell if the jet fuel contains SPK or HRJ fuel).

22 Energy Content Composition Volatility Fluidity Combustion Corrosion Stability Contaminants Other Misc Properties Fuel Properties and Tests

23 Vapor Pressure Another test method for measuring vapor pressure is ASTM D 5191 - Vapor Pressure of Petroleum Products (Mini Method) A chilled sample is introduced into an evacuated, thermostatically controlled chamber. The chamber and sample are heated to 37.8°C (100°F) and the resulting rise in pressure is measured. The sample size and chamber volume are chosen to duplicate the conditions of the Reid Method.
