ABSTRACT
The purpose of this article is to present the history of the construction of the pipeline under the English Channel, Operation PLUTO as an innovative element of fuel supplies to the continent as part of the OVERLORD operation and currently operating in Central Europe, the multinational NATO fuel pipeline system (CEPS - Central Europe Pipeline System) along with infrastructure (refineries, seaports, fuel depots, airbases, and other equipment). The responsibility of the NATO authorities for creating fuel policy in the field of storage and distribution under this system was outlined. The core part of the article concerns CEPS as a significant element of the fuel supply chain for military and civil aerodromes, as well as for fuel depots of NATO ground forces, thus reducing operating costs for its use.
