Apra

The principal port of Guam, Apra (144.666E 13.426N) included the small Piti Naval Yard. The harbor itself was cramped, shallow, and largely open to the sea, making it unsuitable for a fleet anchorage. However, it was strategically located as a base for light forces. The navy yard had a 25,000 barrel fuel oil tank farm, and there was a 170,000 gallon Standard Oil gasoline tank farm
