This lunar oxygen could replace the oxygen propellant that, in the current plans for these missions, is launched from the Earth's surface and amounts to approximately 75 percent of the total mass.
The reason for considering the use of oxygen produced on the Moon is that the cost for the energy needed to transport things from the lunar surface to LEO is approximately 5 percent the cost from the surface of the Earth to LEO.
Various methods by which lunar oxygen could be delivered from the surface of the Moon to lunar orbit and on to LEO have been studied by,a number of investigators (Clarke 1950; Salkeld 1966; Andrews and,Snow 1981; Snow, Kubby, and Dunbar 1982; Davis 1983; Bilby et al.

 Homemade Systems
Oxygen is not safe in the presence of grease, oil, dirt, or any other hydrocarbons -- it can cause these items to self ignite, with potentially catastrophic results.
Regulator/tank connections are 540 CGA nut-stem and wrenches are necessary to connect and disconnect the regulator from the oxygen tank valve.
When the dose of oxygen dialed in on the oxygen regulator is too low, oxygen systems are no better on a summer day than bait tanks with spray bars, air pumps, air stones or flow through systems or worse.

 Apollo 13 Accident
The oxygen tanks were highly insulated spherical tanks which held a "slush" of liquid oxygen with a fill line and heater running down the center.
(On the ground, the tanks were emptied by forcing oxygen gas into the tank and forcing the liquid oxygen out, in space there was no need to empty the tanks.) The heaters in the tanks were normally used for very short periods to heat the interior slightly, increasing the pressure to keep the oxygen flowing.
This fire rapidly heated and increased the pressure of the oxygen inside the tank, and may have spread along the wires to the electrical conduit in the side of the tank, which weakened and ruptured under the pressure, causing the no. 2 oxygen tank to explode.
