OSG Orders Four Product Carriers

Thursday, August 30, 2007
Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. will build four 73,500 dwt coated Panamax product carriers, or LR1 tankers, at the SPP Plant and Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. based in Tong Yang, South Korea. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2010 and 2011. As product trades continue to shift and globalize, OSG is enhancing its fleet of larger size product carriers in order to better service its customer base. Larger size product carriers are more economical for customers, are a more flexible vessel and augment the Company's diverse fleet of crude oil tankers, medium- and long-range product carriers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) vessels. The new vessels bring OSG's total fleet to 147 vessels, of which 107 are operating and an additional 40 vessels are slated for delivery between 2007 and 2011.
