The Norwegian shipping vessel Star Kinn arrived Saturday at the Port of Olympia. The ship had to wait in Budd Inlet until higher tides came in, and tugboats began pulling the ship into position by late morning, according to the port.
One resident in the Boston Harbor area contacted The Olympian, initially believing that the ship had run aground. The port confirmed that there was no damage or related incidents involving the ship.
The ship’s cargo is listed as bagged proppants and pipe. Proppants are used in an oil and gas extraction process known as fracking. According to the port, the Star Kinn arrived from China and will depart Jan. 13 after unloading its cargo.
