Hi Spanner, do you mean high water? Nit-picking but tide is the rise and fall of the water.

Tide generally means High Tide. There is Torm Mathilde inbound as well in next few days, which will also be tidal so Eliza may be delayed if they require Torm Mathilde before Eliza.

Hi Spanner


Is the Torm not a product tanker ? So will more likely go on E4.

Yes it is Product vessel, It is not the berth that was the problem, I was thinking more of the tide, ie both will need high water.

Eliza looks like due to arrive at Nab from Le Harve on 15th. Torm Mathilde berthing tonight at Esso 5, It wont discharge they will move it to Esso 4 somewhen, it is just a move to save a tide and time, and more important money.

Hi Spanner

Thanks a long time to wait  -  hopefully the weather might improve by then !!   Why the long wait - is it a different type of crude ?   I understood Middle East crude has more 'heavy ends' than North Sea or Russian.

It looks like a tight squeeze somewhere the Hook and Isle of Wight with Karen Knutsen due to go at 00:45.
I noticed that, true to form, there is no departure date for Eliza. It will have to budge up a bit as Suez Vasilis is due on Esso 5 on the 22nd.
