During the three months ended December 31, 2007, the Partnership generated $6.5 million of distributable cash flow(1), a decrease from $7.3 million for the third quarter of 2007. This decrease is primarily due to $3.5 million of revenues earned in the third quarter relating to the completion of the mobilization and hook-up of the FSO Navion Saga at the Volve field and an increase in vessel operating expenses in the fourth quarter, partially offset by higher shuttle tanker utilization in the fourth quarter and the acquisition of one FSO unit, the Dampier Spirit, in October 2007.>{?
