The past few days has been busy for tankers in the Narrows.
Skylark Tied up at Nova Scotia Power on Saturday, and sailed Sunday.
This morning, the Woodward Group tanker Nanny tied up at Pier 9. Wilson’s Fuels has a pout there to refill their tank farm, though here previous ports were Baker Lake and Come by Chance, so she may be here for supplies or repairs.

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.
Word reached me last night that the Hiberina Shuttle tanker Kometik has been sold to Andromeda Shipping, and is now bound for Rotterdam.
Andromeda Shipping is a Indian Firm, who appear to own a fleet of 6 tankers.
