and the French oil and energy company TOTAL signed an
agreement today covering charters totalling nine years for three different
P-MAX tankers. The agreement is for a 5-year time charter of the Stena
Progress, which will be delivered from Brodosplit Shipyard at the end of
2009 as well as 2-year extensions of the existing charters of the sister
ships Stena Paris and Stena Provence, whose current 5-year charters expire
in 2010 and 2011, respectively.
With today's agreement, TOTAL now has four of Concordia Maritime's ten
P-MAX tankers signed to time charters. The remaining duration of the
charters for these four vessels
is 22 years.
