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.

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.
