HMCS Halifax pulls into Irving for Gas.

Warships often tied up directly at the Imperial oil wharves for fuel in the past, but to my knowledge, this is the first time a warship has pulled up to the Irving Oil wharf.

Since the navy is now pulling up to Irvings for gas like the rest of us, the question remains, when will we get a harbour side, ship sized BigStop.

HMCS Halifax spent the past week at the Static sound range off Mcnabs.

Irving Oil to Replace Wharf?

Reports are that as a result of the refinery shutdown, Irving Oil is looking to rebuild their wharf at woodside. Irving currently Has a tank farm at woodside, however since their old wharf was condemned, have been accessing it via Imperial Oil. recently core drilling has been taking place in its vicintiy.

With the Shutdown of the refinery, Other Oil Producers will want to have less reliance on Imperial Oils facilities – Especially Irving, who now operated the only east coast refinery in Canada.
