Refined products tanker INDIAN POINT alongside at the Imperial refinery,Halifax,N.S. on 6th October 2013. A scene soon to be rare as the facility ceases to refine product. What is to become of this valuable asset once considered as strategic to the Naval forces of the West? Will bunkering be continued from here. A lot of questions and few if any responses from Imperious Oil.
