Dates of existence



The AC/12(PS) chronological series contains the records of the Petroleum Planning Committee (PPC) team of pipeline and storage experts (hereinafter referred to as "the Team").The Team was established by the PPC following a request from the Infrastructure Committee (see AC/12-D/45). Its mandate was to assess whether the Fifth Slice POL Infrastructure Programme, recommended by SHAPE in AG_6100/5/E-709/53_LOG, would overcome the shortfall in capabilities for the distribution of POL in the event of war. If not, it would propose the construction of safe and economical pipelines and storage tanks in sufficient numbers (see AC/12(PS)-R/1). It should report on these questions by 20 September 1953 at the latest. As it did not have time to produce a detailed report, the Infrastructure Committee agreed to accept a preliminary report (see AC/12-D/44). The Team presented its report to the PPC via its Chairman at the meeting held on 7 September 1953 (see AC/12(PS)-R/1). The Team held its last meeting on 7 September 1953 (see AC/12(PS)-R/1).
