MOVIETONE CARD TITLE: Super Tanker Terminal. DESCRIPTION: The shore installation of the new ocean terminal for super tankers stands on the site of an old fort. Popton Fort, at Angle Bay, Milford Haven, was built when it was believed that Napoleon III planned invasion. The terminal was opened by Mr Richard Wood, Minister of Power, seen here chatting with the Captain of the British Queen, a 50,000 ton tanker. Tankers of twice that size could discharge their cargoes at the two-berth jetty. The oil is pumped to storage tanks from which it flows for over 60 miles by pipeline to a refinery near Swansea.
