Aurviken follow up

The crude oil tanker Aurviken, subject of yesterday's post (January 12) is due to sail this evening (January 13) for Point Tupper, NS to offload at the NuStar terminal.

Aurviken arriving in Halifax January 12 with light snow in the air, and some frozen spray on deck.

I have learned that the ship called in Halifax to take on some fuel for its cargo heating boilers. Temperature maintenance for crude oil cargoes is a very complex topic, which is well beyond my mandate here, but is critical both to maintain the integrity of the product and to ease the pumping off at terminals.
