Thank you for the link to this very interesting video. The vessel is not the one in the second link, which is to an earlier "Julian" (blt 1966) owned by Hilmar Reksten.

The vessel is the video is the 285,000 dwt VLCC "Julian" built in 1973:

She was laid up most of her life, and it seems there are few pictures of her online. Here are some archive photos of her laid up in 1975, next to sistership "Sir Charles Hambro":

She became "Berge Borg" (I) after Reksten went bankrupt in 1982, but as far as I remember she remained laid up and until she was renamed "Borg" in 1985 for the voyage to the shipbreakers.

The vessel at the end of the video (at about 28:50) with a black hull is another VLCC built at the Stord yard in Norway. She is the 285,000 dwt "Songa", which was owned by Hagbart Waage ( Waage also went bankrupt during the "tanker crisis" of the 70s and 80s.

A list of all Norwegian VLCCs of the 70s can be found here:
