Fluor Federal Petroleum Operations (FFPO) is a special-purpose company formed for the sole purpose of managing and operating the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) under a prime contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The DOE established the SPR in 1975 to reduce the adverse impact of a major interruption of petroleum supply to the United States and carry out our nation's obligation under the International Energy program. With the capacity for holding up to 714 million barrels, the SPR is the largest emergency supply of crude oil in the world. The oil is stored in specially created underground salt domes located at four sites along the Gulf Coast: two in Louisiana (Bayou Choctaw and West Hackberry) and two in Texas (Bryan Mound and Big Hill). In addition to the four storage sites, the SPR operates a Project Management Office in New Orleans, Louisiana and an equipment storage facility in Stennis, Mississippi.
