The ship sailed for the NuStar terminal in point Tupper with a load of crude form Libya. its stop in halifax was to load fuel for its cargo heating boiler.

Earlier in the afternoon, the ship was conducting an oil transfer which led to a strong chemically smell to blanket the north end. Heavy fuel oils need to be heated to flow, and this was reportley the source of the smell. the Port Authority ordered the ship to stop the transfer, and the smell dissipated.

The smell prompted numerous 911 calls, and the Halifax shipyard activated the fire alarm to evacuate their staff from the building while they figured out what was going on.
