- Is the LOX (liquid oxygen) required for the falcon-1 launch transported or produced?
- If transported, how?
- If produced, did they set up a cryogenic oxygen plant in Kwajalein?
The liquid oxygen was delivered from a remote location (likely Hawaii). The source doesn't state but it would have to be by ship.
You might recall that the very first Falcon 1 launch attempt was scrubbed because a LOX valve opened in the storage facility and blew off too much LOX.
Based on the ensuing discussion after the abort, the team expects to get new LOX and helium delivered in time to allow for a launch in mid-December.

Statements by Elon Musk in December 2005 allude to a local SpaceX LOX plant which failed prior to the first launch attempt but was later repaired. h/t to Chris Stratton for the correction and providing this reference: https://www.spacex.com/news/2005/12/19/june-2005-december-2005
