The 105k deadweight ton Aframax tanker Eagle Sydney was at Statoil’s Kårstø oil terminal last week taking on a cargo of condensate (light crude oil).

It has since departed and is currently offloading at the port of Fawley, home of Britain’s largest refinery.  The ship is owned by AET and was built in 2009.

Statoil’s Kårstø Processing Plant is located just north of Stavanger, Norway and offloads 600 to 700 cargoes of LPG, ethane, naphtha and stabilized condensate to tankers every year.  It’s the world’s third largest LPG export facility.

Those tankers are guided into port by state-of-the-art LNG powered tugboats built at Sanmar Shipyard in Turkey.
