She would have been coming in for tank cleaning or repairs after discharging at IoG. There are/were no crude oil terminals upriver of the photo location.

Thankyou Gentlemen. SKAUTOPP had sailed from Mena Ahmadi on 22nd June 1968 bound for the Isle of Grain. She subsequently sailed from London on 1st August back to the Persian Gulf. Perhaps she had part cargo for a Thames river jetty?

Did she bring any oil from Mena Ahmadi? She looks very light in the photo.

Nice one Malcolm, I caught her on the same day across at Tilbury.
Thought I had posted her, I will have to dig the photo out.
