This transaction is currently being reviewed by Teekay Offshore’s Conflicts Committee. This is another example of a drop down transaction, which supports the growth of our daughter companies and which also leads to enhanced net asset value for the Teekay Parent level as our MLP daughter companies grow their GP and LP cash flows.

In June, Teekay LNG took advantage of the strong fundamentals in the LNG shipping market to secure a new forward start three-year charter for the Magellan Spirit LNG carrier, which will commence immediately after expiration of the current charter in September 2013, at a 20% increase from its current charter rate.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, Teekay LNG declared a cash distribution of $0.675 per unit, which based on Teekay Parent’s current GP and LP ownership interest in Teekay LNG, results in $22.5 million of cash flow to Teekay Parent for the quarter.Moving on to Teekay Offshore, Talisman Energy, the charter of the Petrojarl Varg FPSO, declared their three-year option to extend the firm period of this contract to June 30, 2016. Talisman has two remaining three-year options.
