This must be one of the cleanest looking tankers that I have ever seen. The Liberian registered CONOCO JET is seen passing Tilbury on the River Thames.

All of the Conoco tankers were originally painted white until one had a fair sized tank overflow when carrying crude and made a fine picture for the press.Black crude on a white hull makes good copy for the media. Within six months the whole fleet was repainted black..
