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
