Mr. Sam Norton, President and CEO, stated, “We have made significant progress towards securing more stable and visible cash flows in our conventional tanker and ATB trades. Supported by strong fundamentals and high utilization, our conventional tanker and ATB fleets both made solid contributions to our second quarter performance. This performance, together with a continually improving supply-demand balance, underpin our optimism about the emerging earnings recovery for these assets.”
Mr. Norton added, “In response to the Chapter 11 filing of Philadelphia Energy Solutions, OSG’s largest lightering customer, we have re-deployed one of our two lightering vessels into the strengthening conventional tanker market while we await clarity on the longer-term intentions for the PES refinery complex. Notwithstanding this adjustment, we believe that OSG’s niche businesses collectively remain well positioned to continue benefitting from the long-term stability that these unique assets have historically provided.”
