Abstract:

This thesis motivates and defines the concept of Fully Burdened Cost of Fuel FBCF, assesses Department of the Navy Major Defense Acquisition Programs potentially impacted by FBCF estimates and applies an experimental methodology developed by OUSDATL to estimate and analyze the FBCF of a notional capability. Our analysis shows that there are potentially large variations in energy-related costs burdens associated with the required fuel delivery assets, the supporting infrastructure and associated manpower, and the assets providing force protection and security to the fuel delivery assets in both peacetime and operational scenarios. Recommendations for follow on studies are provided.
