As she passed outbound she had the tug Atlantic Oak on a stern line as tethered escort. This means that she still has some crude oil on board. If she had no cargo she would normally not have had an escort. It might also mean that she had some deficiency in her mechanical or navigational systems and was escorted as a precaution.
The ship was built in 2010 and is 83,850 gross tons, 156,493 deadweight. She is owned by a subsidiary of Apollo Global Management (an NYSE traded investment management company) called Principal Marine Management of Southport, CT, USA.
The ship's operations are entrusted to Northern Marine Management of Clydebank, Scotland, in turn a wholly owned subsidiary of Stena AB, but which also manages ships for outside owners.
