At an oil price of just over USD 100 per barrel, this represented a valuable consignment worth almost NOK 500 million.

The crude was discharged at Kalundborg in Denmark for transfer to a refinery where it was processed into such products as petrol, aviation fuel, diesel oil, propane, heating oil and fuel oil.
