Tanker Traffic

With winter upon us the coastal tankers are on the go running short trips out of Halifax, but with the odd side trip as far as Montreal. Chemical tankers also seem to be in profusion these days too, some of them coming from the St.Lawrence. These three have all put in an appearance in the last few days.

1. The Singapore flagged Moor has been up the St.Lawrence and Saguenay recently. It still carries a fair amount of frozen spray forward, despite today's milder temperatures.

2. Turkish built/Canadian tanker Algonova also made a trip to Montreal recently, and ran into some mechanical problems along the way. Arriving Halifax 2011-02-12.

3. US built/ Canadian flagged Algosea rests at anchor awaiting a berth 2012-02-11.
