Press release from: Euronav NV

Euronav NV (EURONEXT BRUSSELS: EURN) today announces that TI Africa Ltd, the joint venture in which OSG and Euronav NV each has a 50% interest, has received a notice of termination from Maersk Oil Qatar concerning the services contract related to the FSO Africa, a vessel currently under conversion to a Floating Storage and Offloading (FSO) service vessel.

The joint venture contests the termination notice and continues to believe that both FSOs remain a critical part of a multi-billion dollar field expansion at Al Shaheen. The joint venture will continue the conversion of the FSO Africa which is a first class asset and with the current buoyant market for oil and oil services will find employment either in the oil field expansion at Al Shaheen or in the many other offshore developments worldwide.

Euronav is an integrated owner, operator and manager able to provide complete shipping services in addition to the carriage of crude oil on its fleet of modern large tankers. The crude oil sea-borne transportation market is cyclical and highly volatile requiring flexible and proactive management of assets in terms of fleet composition and employment. Euronav operates its fleet on both the spot and the period market. Most of Euronav VLCCs as well as all VPLUS are operated in the Tankers International pool. Euronav operates at the moment all of its Suezmaxes and Aframaxes under period charter contracts with oil majors, leading refiners and oil traders such as BP, Glencore, Petrobras, Sun Oil, Total Valero and Vitol. Fleet management is conducted by three wholly owned subsidiaries: Euronav Ship Management SAS and Euronav SAS, both French companies with headquarters in Nantes (France) and with a major branch office in Antwerp and Euronav Ship Management (Hellas) Ltd with its head office in Piraeus, Greece. The skills of its directly employed seagoing officers, shore-based Captains and Engineers give Euronav a competitive edge in high quality design, maintenance and operation. Euronav vessels fly Belgian, Greek and French flag. The use of national flag together with operational and maintenance standards in terms of age, appearance and performance which are higher than industry norms enables Euronav to employ part of its fleet on long-term charter with fixed earnings to secure financial visibility
