Today's Oil Jetty at Tranmere
The modern oil jetties at Tranmere are a far more complex affair than the original posted yesterday. They can take the Very Large Crude oil Carriers (VLCCs) and offload their oil then send it on it's way to Stanlow Oil Terminal 10 miles away across the Wirral.
The tugboat is the Svitzer Stanlow, fresh from guiding a tanker into the far terminal.
