Exercise Overland – Nautical Petros 22


Petroleum Operators from 17th Sustainment Brigade conducted Exercise Overland – Nautical Petros 22 (EX ONP 22) at Cowley Beach Training Area in Queensland, from 1st to 19th August 2022. EX ONP 22 aimed to qualify Petroleum Operators in the collective operation and supervision of a suite of petroleum capabilities.

This included establishing bulk fuel storage areas, Inland Pipeline Distribution System, Advanced Fuel Quality Control and more.

At the core of the Exercise was the demonstration of the ADF’s capability of moving fuel from a ship to land without support from fixed infrastructure, which falls into its light ship-to-shore transfer capability.
