Background

On August 25th, a triple naming ceremony was held at the Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard in Korea. Teekay’s newest shuttle tankers, Beothuk Spirit, Norse Spirit and Dorset Spirit, were officially christened and named in honor of the people who first inhabited the area around Newfoundland. Once delivered, the shuttle tankers will be operating at Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose and Hebron offshore oil fields located in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador.

The vessels will provide crude transportation services to the Hibernia, Terra Nova, White Rose and Hebron offshore oil fields located in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador; and will replace two in-charters and one owned vessel vessel currently servicing this 15-year, plus extension options, contract with a group of companies that includes Chevron Canada, Exxon Mobil, Husky Energy, Mosbacher Operating Ltd., Murphy Oil, Nalcor Energy, Statoil and Suncor Energy.
