Fleet Oiler (PM1)
The Military Sealift Command Fleet Oiler (PM1) program has 15 ships that provide a variety of fuels for ship propulsion, aircraft operations and power generation.

Our Fleet Oiler (PM1) program has 15 ships that provide a variety of fuels for ship propulsion, aircraft operations and power generation. Fleet Replenishment Oilers are the largest subset of the Navy's Combat Logistics Force (CLF) and also routinely shuttle food and other dry cargo as fleet freight for transfer to customers as their fuel is delivered. Three fleet oilers were built or constructed with double hulls designed to meet Oil Protection Act of 1990 requirements: USNS Patuxent, USNS Laramie and USNS Rappahannock.

As part of the Combat Logistics Force (CLF), Fleet Oilers are the supply line to U.S. Navy surface combatant ships at sea. They provide fuel enabling the fleet to remain at sea and combat ready for extended periods of time.

Fleet replenishment oilers provide fuel to deployed Navy combatant ships and their assigned aircraft via connected replenishment at sea.
