The 4 former BP "P Class" year 2000 vintage VLCC's have been reunited under the same ownership. They are currently owned by Ridgebury Tankers of Westport , Connecticut, USA. A contact found this out by seeing a photo on Ship Spotting of the Ridgebury Pride, taken in the English Channel recently. Those big sat-com domes make them stand-out a bit from the rest. According to AIS, she was bound for Yeusu in South Korea from Hound Point. I wonder whose cargo she was carrying?
A look on Ridgebury's web-site and found the other 3 "P" boats were there too. Apparently the Pioneer was the last one purchased about a year ago. They are all named Ridgebury P*****.
At the time of posting AIS was reporting:
the Progress is in the Gulf, en route for Basrah from Ras Tanura
the Purpose was in the Gulf heading towards Ras Tanura from Ju'aymah
the Pride was off West Africa en route from Europort to Yosu, S. Korea, and
the Pioneer was in the Gulf of Oman, heading for Vadinar in India having loaded at Ju'aymah, Saudi Arabia.
