Case Studies


NCS has operated fuel laboratories in support of NATO for more than a decade. From initially taking over a field laboratory NCS expanded these to a series of laboratories matching international commercial laboratories on equipment, personnel, and management systems.

As the first laboratories in a warzone, the laboratories obtained ISO 9001 certification and ISO 17025 accreditation.

Fuel Marking

NCS has provided a wide range of fuel into Afghanistan via a variety of supply lines. The risk of theft or fraught was significant due to NCS importing tax exempt superior grade fuel compared to the product offered on the local market, in one of the world’s most challenged countries when it comes to corruption.

As a consequence, NATO Support and Procurements Agency (NSPA) requested a fuel marking solution for F-54 stocks in Afghanistan. NCS introduced a solution enhanced to cover the supply line through the high-risk border crossings (BXP), utilizing a state-of-the-art invisible DNA tagging including test capabilities providing full traceability via a cloud-based secured database.

NATO Fuel Transfer Point

In 2018 due to an increase in operational tempo, NCS were tasked by NATO Support & Procurement Agency to recommission a distribution pipeline and construct a new Bulk Fuel Storage Facility. This required the construction of a Pipeline Tie-in Point (TiP) at a NATO Fuel Transfer Point (NTFP) on Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan.

International Logistics Support

In 2022, NCS was tasked by the Danish Defense to assist with International Logistics Solutions in support of international obligations in Europe.

Large Scale Mobilization

In 2014, NCS was awarded a contract with NATO (NSPA) as the prime contractor for all fuel and fuel related services in Afghanistan.

Herat Bulk Fuel Installation

In 2018, NCS designed and constructed a new Bulk Fuel Installation (BFI) at Camp Arena, Herat, Afghanistan for NSPA (NATO Support and Procurement Agency) under our Resolute Support Mission contract.

The solution was based on a 24 unit configuration for Diesel Ground Fuel and Aviation Jet Fuel and a pumping capacity of 1,100 Ltrs/minute.

Fuel Technical Training

In 2016, NCS was contracted by the UN Supply Section to conduct fuel technical training of the UN Fuel Unit Staff for their fuel operations in Sudan. NCS took on this task utilizing the extended inhouse training/education capabilities used for its own staff.

Support of NATO in Eastern Europe

In 2017, NCS was awarded a NATO framework contract for fuel and fuel services in support of the NATO missions in Europe. Today NCS still supports in the Baltic Region.

Airborne Fuel Deliveries

In August 2016, NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) approached NCS on behalf of their military customer asking for airlift-based mission support. NATO allied troops in a Forward Operating Base in Afghanistan were becoming besieged by insurgents, who had cratered roads and installed checkpoints to stop the ground transportation of supplies, including fuel.

Support of NATO in Afghanistan

NCS has provided a wide range of fuel and associated fuel services to customers in Afghanistan at Kandahar Airfield (KAF), Kabul/Hamid Karzai International Airport (HKIA), Mazar e-Sharif (MeS), Camp Arena (Herat), and at several Forward Operating Bases (FOB’s) supporting NATO Support and Procurement Agency (NSPA) Missions, over the course of 15 years.
