Fuel Management

NSPA offers timely, cost-effective & high quality Aviation and Ground Petroleum, Oils and Lubricants (POL) support services to Nations, National and Multinational NATO Bodies/Agencies and multiple Partner Nations.

We provide a full scope of POL support services world-wide, including major operations like the Resolute Support (RS) mission in Afghanistan and KFOR's task forces in Kosovo.

The more recent operations Enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) and Very High Readiness Joint Task Forces (VJTF) under NATO's Defence & Deterrence activities have also been enabled by NSPA throughout Europe. Support included the actual area of operation, and routes from the major Sea Ports of Debarkation (SPODs) or Aerial Ports of Debarkation (APODs).
