The ship’s primary mission is to provide fuel to U.S. Navy ships at sea, and jet fuel to aircraft assigned to aircraft carriers.

This contract includes options, which, if exercised, would bring the cumulative value of this contract to $11,800,597. Work will be performed in Portland, Ore., and is expected to be completed by September 2012. Contract funds will not expire at the end of the current fiscal year. This contract was competitively procured using full and open competition with two offers received. The U.S. Navy’s Military Sealift Command, Washington, D.C., is the contracting authority (N40442-12-C-2010).
