Following the war, she performed occupation duty and saw service in China until early March 1946. Upon her return to the United States, she was decommissioned on 8 July 1946 and struck from the Navy list on 14 March 1947. On 17 June 1948, the ship was sold to the Standard Oil & Gas Co. for operation.
