Original description:

Caption: 030628-N-6077T-003 Central Command Area of Responsibility (Jun. 28, 2003) -- An SH-60 Seahawk attached to the "Easy Riders" of Light Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Thirty Seven (HSL-37) provides aerial security for the commercial oil tanker AbQaiq. The supertanker AbQaiq is the first commercial vessel to receive exported Iraqi oil as an off shore customer since 1991, outside of the United Nations' Oil-For-Food program. AbQaiq is scheduled to take on an estimated 2 million barrels of crude oil. U.S. Navy and coalition forces are helping to provide security, enforcing an exclusionary perimeter around the terminal.
