Asphalt Star outbound for Portland. The smaller Asphalt Spring was outbound for New Haven. earlier today.
Both ships conducted a product transfer yesterday in the basin. the Asphalt Spring had been in port for a week waiting, and the Asphalt Star arrived from Tarragona Spain, and then anchored in the basin to transfer product. Presumably asphalt star is to large to make it to New Haven. This is the third such transfer to occur in Halifax in recent memory.
