Algoscotia from Imperial Oil

With the end of refining on Monday at Imperial Oil, it is now a terminal only. The first departure from the facility since Monday is Algoscotia, a coastal tanker that delivers Imperial Oil product to ports in Atlantic Canada. Today's departure is for Sydney, but the ship does not appear to be fully loaded.
The ship was built in 2004 by Quixin Shipyard in Jiangnan, China and measures 13,352 gross tons and 18,750 deadweight tonnes. It arrived in Halifax for the first time August 13, 2004.
It is anticipated that the ship will continue to run in and out of Halifax, but may very well be bringing more cargo.
