Tsakos Energy Navigation Charters DNA-Aframax Tanker

June 21, 2011

Tsakos Energy Navigation Ltd. (TEN) announced the charter of the 105,000 dwt, DNA design Aframax tanker, Maria Princess, to a major Chinese oil concern for a twelve month period. This charter comes in line with the Company's pre-stated policy in exploring opportunities in the wider Chinese energy market.
 
"The growth of oil consumption in China is a major determinant in worldwide tanker demand and we are pleased to participate directly in this development with one of our modern DNA aframax vessels," stated Mr. Nikolas P. Tsakos, President & Chief Executive Officer of TEN. "We hope that this fixture will further enhance our relationship with local chartering concerns and be our gateway to this major economy for additional opportunities in the future. Our modern and versatile fleet gives us confidence that this fixture will not stand in isolation once we strategically begin to redeploy our vessels in the longer term charter market," Mr. Tsakos concluded.
