PostHow Many Barrels in One Foot of Oil Tanker? (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 07/23/21 7:53 am)
John E asked, how many barrels in one foot of oil at the bottom of a tanker?
It depends of course on the size of the vessel. I do not remember exactly for the specific case I wrote about yesterday, but probably it was at least 10,500 barrels. I did not make the calculation at the time, because as soon I discovered the trick the Receivers took over.
I do not know what happened to the larcenous Captain, as the matter was passed along to our sister company. For sure the captain was in serious trouble.
JE comments: At $50 per barrel, that would be over half a million. Not a bad day's "work" for the dregs on the bottom of your boat...
