Stevenson, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President of OMI commented that "This brings to fifteen the number of vessels on long term time charter, with two more new product tankers to be added during the first quarter of this year. We now have twenty handysize and handymax product tankers, making us the largest owner in the world in this size category.
