The deliveries are as follows:

  • STI Madison and STI Park, LR2 product tankers, were delivered from Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries in September 2014. Upon delivery, each vessel began a voyage for 45 days at approximately $30,000 per day.
  • STI Mythos, an MR product tanker, was delivered in August 2014 from Hyundai Mipo Dockyard of South Korea (HMD). Upon delivery, this vessel began a time charter for up to 120 days at approximately $17,000 per day.
  • STI Regina, an MR product tanker, was delivered in September 2014 from SPP Shipbuilding of South Korea (SPP). Upon delivery, this vessel began a time charter for up to 120 days at approximately $17,000 per day.
  • STI Benicia, an MR product tanker, was delivered in September 2014 from SPP. After delivery, this vessel began a one year time charter at a rate level consistent with current one year time charter contracts which includes a profit sharing mechanism whereby earnings in excess of the base time charter rate are split between the Company and charterer.
  • STI Hackney and STI Acton, Handymax Ice Class 1A product tankers, were delivered from HMD in August and September 2014, respectively. Upon delivery, each vessel began a time charter for up to 120 days at a rate level consistent with the current market.
