Emerging from a bank of thick fog covering the Firth of Clyde, the Russian-owned tanker NS BURGAS is seen passing Dunoon, as she headed towards Loch Long with a cargo of Nigerian crude oil from the Bonga Deepwater Project. NS BURGAS flies the Liberian flag, but is owned by JSC Novoship, the Novorossiysk Shipping Company, and was completed by Jiangsu Rongsheng Heavy Industries in October 2009. She has a deadweight of 156,572 tonnes and is 274 metres in length.
