Capital Product Partners Agrees to Enter into New Charters with OSG

first_imgCapital Product Partners L.P. announced yesterday agreements to transfer its claims against Overseas Shipholding Group Inc. (OSG) and certain of OSG’s subsidiaries regarding the long term bareboat charters of three of the Partnership’s product tanker vessels.As previously reported by the Partnership, on November 14, 2012, OSG and certain of its subsidiaries made a voluntary filing for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. The Partnership had three IMO II/III Chemical/Product tankers (M/T Alexandros II, M/T Aristotelis II and M/T Aris II, all built in 2008 by STX Offshore & Shipbuilding Co. Ltd.) with long term bareboat charters to subsidiaries of OSG.After discussions with OSG, the Partnership agreed to enter into new charters with OSG on substantially the same terms as the prior charters, but at a bareboat rate of $6,250 per day. The new charters were approved by the Bankruptcy Court on March 21, 2013, and were effective as of March 1, 2013. On the same date, the Bankruptcy Court also rejected the previous charters as of March 1, 2013. Rejection of each charter constitutes a material breach of such charter. On May 24, 2013, the Partnership filed claims against each of the charterers and their respective guarantors for damages resulting from the rejection of each of the previous charters, including, among other things, the difference between the reduced amount of the new charters and the amount due under each of the rejected charters.The Partnership has since transferred to Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. all of its right, title, interest, claims and causes of action in and to, or arising under or in connection with, the Claims pursuant to three separate Assignment of Claim Agreements, dated as of June 24, 2013, and effective as of June 26, 2013. The total purchase price to be paid by Deutsche Bank, the largest part of which has been already received, is dependent on the actual claim amount allowed by the Bankruptcy Court — the Partnership may be required to refund a portion of the purchase price or may receive an additional payment from Deutsche Bank. The Partnership has agreed to guarantee all obligations and liabilities of each relevant vessel-owning subsidiary of the Partnership party to the Assignment Agreements, per the terms of each such agreement. In connection with the Assignment Agreements, on July 2, 2013, Deutsche Bank filed with the Bankruptcy Court six separate Evidences of Transfer of Claim, each pertaining to the Partnership’s vessel-owning subsidiaries’ claims against each charterer party to the original three charter agreements and each respective guarantor thereof.Mr. Ioannis Lazaridis, Chief Executive and Chief Financial Officer of the Partnership’s General Partner, commented: “We are very pleased to have successfully assigned our claim against OSG to Deutsche Bank and we believe that the funds received in connection with the assignment further enhance the growth prospects of the Partnership.”Fleet DevelopmentsThe M/T Avax (47,834 dwt, built 2007, South Korea) and M/T Axios (47,872 dwt, built 2007, South Korea) have both extended their charters with our Sponsor, Capital Maritime, by a period of 12 months (+/- 30 days) at a gross rate of $14,750 per day, which is $750 per day higher than their previous employment day rate. The earliest redelivery for each of the M/T Avax and the M/T Axios under these charters is expected to be April 2014 and May 2014, respectively.[mappress]Capital Product Partners L.P., July 11, 2013last_img read more

GE to develop 1 520 mm gauge shunting locomotive

first_imgKAZAKHSTAN: GE Transportation has signed a memorandum of understanding with JSC Locomotiv and Kurastyru Zaut for the development of a 1 520 mm gauge diesel-electric shunting locomotive suitable for use in Kazakhstan and across the 1 520 mm gauge region. The design will incorporate GE Transportation’s AC traction technology, which the manufacturer says will offer lower life-cycle costs and higher availability than older DC technology.The agreement announced on April 11 covers an initial 150 locomotives, of which the first five are to be manufactured at GE Transportation’s Erie plant in the USA by 2012. After validation of the design, the remainder will be assembled from US-supplied kits at the Astana locomotive plant which was opened by President Nursultan Nazarbayev last July and rolled out its first locally-built Evolution Series locomotive in December. ‘I am extremely pleased to mark another milestone in GE’s and Kazakhstan’s long and fruitful history of working together,’ said Lorenzo Simonelli, President & CEO of GE Transportation. ‘The current collaboration to design and deliver shunter locomotives specifically designed for the Republic of Kazakhstan and the 1 520 mm region is a great example of how globalization has opened up growth opportunities for GE Transportation.’ In 1995 GE Transportation began a programme to supply more than 400 kits to extend the life of locomotives operated by national railway KTZ by up to 20 years, and in 2009 it signed a 15-year servicing contract worth US$500m. In 2006 it won a US$650m order to supply KTZ with 310 Evolution Series locomotives, 300 of which are being assembled in Astana.last_img read more

Senate Majority Offers Path To End Oil & Gas Cash Payments

first_imgFacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Members of the Alaska Senate Majority offered a path to end cash tax payments to oil and gas companies. Senate President Pete Kelly, R-Fairbanks: “We believe it is urgent to pass legislation ending these cash payments. The state will bleed at least one million dollars per day between now and the end of the year – that could pay for seven troopers for an entire year – unless we act now.”   With little more than two weeks remaining in the second special session called by Gov. Bill Walker, Senators are urging their colleagues in the Alaska House to come to the table and end a program both sides agree the state can no longer afford. Sen. Giessel: “The Senate is prepared with a proposal to move forward on, reach compromise, and end cash payments, today. We are calling on the House to join us and take action. We can and must do our job, now.” The provision would mean that 100 percent of losses incurred on a lease stay with that lease until it enters production. Then, the losses could be applied against the taxpayer’s overall segment (North Slope or Cook Inlet). As a result, the state will, essentially, require production before allowing loss deductions. Sen. Cathy Giessel, R-Anchorage, chair of the Senate Resources Committee: “Under this proposal, the state will stop offering cash payments for credits beginning July 1, 2017. We must stop this cash bleed. It will save us at least $200 million between now and Dec. 31 – possibly more.” The Senate passed a bill to end cash payments to oil and gas companies on May 15, but the House failed to concur. In an effort to strike compromise, the Senate adopted several changes, including a provision to enact “100 percent ring-fencing.”last_img read more
