for Two Additional Shuttle Tankers
Hamilton, Bermuda - Nov. 28, 2017
“This is another important milestone for Teekay Offshore’s shuttle tanker franchise since it further strengthens our position as the leading provider of CoA shuttle tanker services in the North Sea,” commented Ingvild Sæther, President and CEO of Teekay Offshore Group Ltd. “Our customers require a reliable, long-term solution for securing offtake services from over 15 oil fields in the North Sea and therefore, these state-of-the-art newbuildings demonstrate our ongoing commitment to our customers,” Ms. Sæther continued, “What makes me particularly proud is that these newbuildings, as well as the two shuttle tankers ordered in July 2017 to service Statoil’s needs in the North Sea, will set new standards for both fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.”
