Clean VLCC Silverstone has embarked on another clean cargo voyage, having left Rotterdam February 19 with 2 million barrels of gasoil and signaling for Lome, Togo. 740,000 bbls were loaded via ship-to-ship from Vopak Terminal Europoort on February 8, and another 1.26mn bbls via ship-to-ship in the Europoort Lightering zone on February 19.

Diesel/gasoil flows from Northwest Europe to West Africa are common, but this marks the first time on our records this movement is happening aboard a VLCC.
