Shell's DARINA was also thus fitted. Shell produced a super film entitled "From MUREX to DARINA" which looked at the lightening process in detail. And, of course, the smaller HALIA worked as a lightening tanker.

I seem to recall that NATICINA was similarly retrofitted.

In the 1970s she was fitted with fenders for lightering VLCCs in Lyme Bay and delivering the transferred crude to different North European Shell refineries, including Shellhaven

This one brings back lots of memories, Bob. A regular visitor to Shellhaven in the 1970s and seen countless times in the Thames Estuary from distance - but no photo.
