I see from numerous news outlets that OSG has bought out its partners in the Alaska Tanker Company (which I believe were BP, Keystone and MTL). Does anyone know what this means for the crews and shore-side staff?
I always thought the laid-up tanker should be employed running from Texas to the EC. With BP no longer calling the shots perhaps it will. Hopefully that would keep some of the Texas oil in the States instead of being exported in foreign flag tankers.
