The eight newbuilding tankers are scheduled for delivery throughout 2017 and the first quarter of 2018.

The loan facility is composed of multiple tranches and the maturity date of each tranche is between six and twelve years from each drawdown date.

The two LR2s are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2017.
