Bergesen has entered an agreement with Tankers International to sell two tankers for a total $156 million.

"Both of the two sold vessels are employed on timecharter contracts, and the sales are subject to the charterers' approval," the statement said. The price was $78 million per vessel, reflecting the vessels' timecharter contracts. Bergesen said it would book a profit of $28 million. With this sale the company has sold seven of a total of eight vessels purchased from the Hitachi yard in Japan in 2000, it said. - (Reuters)
