Orion - another product tnaker

Another in the long line of Korean built product tankers, Orion (ex Overseas Orion to 2009) arrived this afternoon and tied up at Imperial Oil dock 4.

The 30,068 gross / 51,128 dwt ship came from the STX Offshore and Shipbuilding yard in Jinhae, in 2006. There is nothing remarkable about this ship, but it did arrive in ballast. see Comment - the ship is carrying furnace oil - but not a lot of it I would say.
Does this mean that Imperial Oil's storage (and possibly blending) operation is now also in the export business?

  1. It's not in ballast. It is discharging Furnace Oil.
