Additionally there was a $3.7m reduction in net voyage revenue associated with an increase in reserves relating to customer claims on the time charter contracts of the company's OBO vessels. Net voyage revenue, which is gross voyage revenues minus voyage expenses unique to a specific voyage (including port, canal and fuel costs), decreased 49.1 percent to $51m for the three months ended June 30, 2006 compared to $100.1m for the three months ended June 30, 2005.
