SPOTD: Docking the Polar Enterprise

Polar enterprise conocophillips tanker

SUNY Maritime grad Jill Davenport sent us this photo of the Polar Enterprise, a 2006-built, 141,000 deadweight ton crude oil tanker owned by ConocoPhillips.  This vessel is one of ConocoPhillips’ five Endeavour-class tankers operating in the Trans-Alaskan Pipeline System (TAPS) trade, lifting crude oil in Valdez, Alaska, and discharging at ports along the West Coast of the United States and Hawaii.
