Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Teekay LNG Partners L.P. is to acquire a second 155,900 cubic meter liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier newbuilding from Awilco LNG ASA, a Norway-based owner and operator of LNG carriers. The vessel is currently under construction by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. (DSME) of South Korea and is expected to deliver in the fourth quarter of 2013, when it will be chartered back to Awilco.

As with the first vessel, Teekay LNG will purchase the second vessel for a price of $205 million less a $50 million upfront prepayment of charter hire by Awilco which is in addition to the daily bareboat charter rate. Awilco has fixed-price purchase obligations for both vessels at the end of both the firm charter period and option period. The Awilco vessels, the first of which was delivered on September 16, 2013, are each expected to generate annual Distributable Cash Flow of approximately $7.5 million.

"Further to our August 2013 announcement on the first Awilco LNG carrier newbuilding, the acquisition-leaseback of a second vessel from Awilco will provide Teekay LNG with additional near-term accretive cash flows," commented Peter Evensen, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay GP LLC. "These vessels will complement the Partnership's strong portfolio of longer-term visible growth projects, including, the four LNG carrier newbuildings delivering in 2016 and the ten LPG newbuildings in our joint venture with Exmar, delivering between 2014 and 2017."
