A state news report noted that the vessel was a donation from the Philippine National Oil Company (PNOC) carrying the name M/T Lapu-Lapu.

With the new motor tanker, fuel will be made available at naval installations and vessels will no longer have to travel farther inland for replenishment. Moreover, it has depot-to-ship, ship-to-depot, and ship-to-ship refueling capabilities.

Problems on fuel contamination will also be addressed with the new oil tanker.

The oil tanker was formerly one of the largest vessels in the fleet of the oil transport corporation. Built in Zhejiang Zhongxing Shipyard in Taizhou, China in November 2007, the AF-81 was commissioned by the PNOC in January 2008. - Camille Diola
