When it comes to hosting tankers at its Woodside Terminal in Dartmouth, Irving Oil gives preference to ships of its own domestic fleet. This is perfectly understandable, since domestic ships are usually in and out quite quickly as they do not discharge full cargoes. They drop off some cargo here then head for other ports such as Charlottetown or St.John's.
On Sunday May 15 the oddly named tanker Dee4 Elm arrived from Amsterdam with refined product. It went to anchor to await the arrival later in the day of Irving's own (chartered) tanker Acadian which docked on arrival.
The ship moved in to Irving Woodside Monday evening May 16 when Acadian sailed (in fog - sorry no photo).
