Tsakos Energy Navigation Announces The Delivery And Charter Of Aframax Tanker Uraga Princess

ATHENS, Greece, July 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tsakos Energy Navigation Limited ("TEN" or the "Company") (NYSE:TNP) today announced the delivery and charter of the 105,000 dwt DNA-aframax tanker Uraga Princess from Sumitomo Heavy Industries in Japan, the final newbuilding in a series of eight ordered in 2004. Upon delivery, the vessel entered a minimum 30-day repositioning voyage with the oil trading arm of a major financial institution.

"We are pleased to welcome the final vessel in a series of eight DNA-aframaxes, the first of which was ordered in Sumitomo six years ago. We are grateful for their exceptional and innovative engineering," said Mr. Nikolas P. Tsakos, President and CEO of TEN. "The DNA-aframax class vessels are high specification vessels with enhanced operational versatility and have widened our customer service capabilities. The previous seven vessels have performed excellently and have been attractive assets to the chartering community. We are confident that the Uraga Princess, built to the same high-standards of its sister vessels, will perform equally well and contribute to our bottom line."

Mr. Tsakos concluded, "Operating a fleet of modern tankers positions TEN well for the future. We remain optimistic that TEN will benefit from an expected improvement in market dynamics."
