The Randgrid FSO is expected to be a strategic partnership with Statoil and a significant milestone in Teekay Offshore's FSO franchise as the start-up of the largest FSO project to-date. This FSO alone is expected to contribute an annual cash flow of $60 million during the firm period of the charter contract.

The Company also has more charter contracts lined up with an amendment signed with PetroJarlI FPSO with a start-up in Q1 2018. It has also entered into shipbuilding contract to construct two Suezmax DP2 shuttle tankers.

The Company has also strengthened its financial position and fully financed Partnership's existing growth projects. It has stabilized its equity base with new shares at $2.50 per unit issued to Brookfield at a value of $610 million. It has also sold the existing $200 million parent loan book to Brookfield at a discount to par and the loan maturities have been extended to 2022.


The competition in the FSO market is between conventional tanker owners, with access to tankers available for conversion, and oilfield services companies and oilfield engineering and construction companies who compete in the floating production system market. Competition in the FSO market is logically based on price, with expertise par excellence in FSO operations, management of FSO conversions, and relationships with shipyards, as well as the ability to access vessels for conversion that meet customer specifications.
