Overseas Shipholding To Charter Two Tankers To Petrobras America

Monday, October 08, 2007
Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (OSG) revealed that it has entered into a definitive agreement to charter two 46,000 dwt Jones Act tankers to Petrobras America, Inc. a unit of Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (PBR, PBRA). The company said that it would provide shuttle tanker services from a Floating Production Storage and Offloading facility, or FPSO. Wherever pipeline infrastructure is too costly, FPSOs and shuttle tankers are a cost-effective means of transporting offshore oil. Overseas Shipholding would convert to shuttle tankers two of the 12 product tankers that it has ordered from Aker Philadelphia Shipyard. The delivery of converted shuttle tankers to Petrobras is anticipated to occur in the first quarters of 2010 and 2011. [Source: http://www.tradingmarkets.com]
