Teekay LNG Partners Orders Two LNG Newbuilds

Thursday, December 13, 2012

Teekay LNG Partners L.P. (Teekay LNG or the Partnership) (NYSE:TGP) entered into an agreement with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering CO., LTD., (DSME) of South Korea for the construction of two 173,400 cu. m. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carrier newbuildings, with options to order up to three additional vessels. The Partnership intends to secure long-term contract employment for both vessels prior to their delivery in the first half of 2016. The newbuildings will be constructed with M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI) twin engines, which are expected to be significantly more fuel-efficient and have lower emission levels than other engines currently being utilized in LNG shipping. "The delivery of these vessels is timed to coincide with the next wave of increased demand for LNG carriers which is expected when a large number of new LNG export projects come on-stream commencing from late-2015. They are also among the largest LNG carriers that will be able to transit the Panama Canal after its expansion project is complete, which makes them ideal for U.S. LNG exports. The recent U.S. Department of Energy study supported the export of LNG from the U.S.," commented Peter Evensen, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay GP LLC. "In addition, we are confident these newbuildings will be especially attractive to our customers given their fuel-efficient engines as well as being built to a high specification at DSME." Mr. Evensen continued, "With scheduled delivery in 2016, we believe that we are well-positioned to charter these LNG newbuildings on fixed-rate charter contracts prior to their delivery, thereby providing Teekay LNG with visible built-in growth."
