Upon delivery, the Proteas, one of the largest product tankers in the world and one of the three Aframax tankers recently acquired from Western Petroleum, entered a spot related voyage carrying naptha. The Antares entered a three-year time charter with a major Far Eastern entity for a minimum rate that exceeds the vessel's all-in breakeven rate. The charter also calls for a 50:50 split on the upside if rates exceed a specified level above the minimum. For the duration of the charter, the minimum rate of the Antares should provide the company with an additional $16 million in gross revenue.
