November 8, 2012

HAMILTON, BERMUDA--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2012) - Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. (TOO) -

Highlights

  • Generated distributable cash flow(1) of $38.6 million in the third quarter of 2012.
  • Agreed to acquire the Voyageur Spirit FPSO from Teekay Corporation for $540 million; expected to be completed mid-December 2012.
  • Acquisition of Voyageur Spirit FPSO to be fully financed through the $211.5 million public equity offering completed in September 2012, a $40 million equity private placement to Teekay Corporation upon completion of the transaction, and a new debt facility.
  • Partnership''s total liquidity increased to $569 million as at September 30, 2012.

Teekay Offshore GP LLC, the general partner of Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. (Teekay Offshore or the Partnership) (TOO), today reported the Partnership''s results for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. During the third quarter of 2012, the Partnership generated distributable cash flow(1) of $38.6 million, compared to $52.1 million in the same period of the prior year.

On October 12, 2012, a cash distribution of $0.5125 per common unit was declared for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The cash distribution is payable on November 9, 2012 to all unit holders of record on October 24, 2012.

"As expected, the cash flow contribution from our conventional tanker segment has been declining due to the expiration and cancellation of time-charters on three of the Partnership''s conventional tankers in recent quarters," commented Peter Evensen, Teekay Offshore GP LLC''s Chief Executive Officer. "However, we are pleased that our shuttle tanker and FPSO offshore segments continue to perform well and we are looking forward to further growth in these segments in the near-term. In addition, the Partnership has a strong pipeline of growth opportunities which we expect will drive further distributable cash flow growth through acquisitions from our sponsor, Teekay Corporation, as well as future potential direct acquisitions from third parties and potential new organic offshore projects which the Partnership may undertake directly."

Mr. Evensen continued, "During the third quarter the Partnership agreed to acquire the Voyageur Spirit FPSO from Teekay Corporation for a purchase price of $540 million upon commencement of the unit''s charter contract which is expected to be in mid-December. The Voyageur Spirit, which will operate on the Huntington field in the North Sea under a five-year firm period contract with E.ON, plus extension options, is expected to be accretive to the Partnership''s distributable cash flow. As a result, we believe that the Partnership will be in a position to increase its quarterly distribution commencing with the first quarter of 2013 distribution which will be paid in May 2013."

  1. Distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the financial performance of the Partnership and other master limited partnerships. Please see Appendix B for a reconciliation of distributable cash flow to the most directly comparable financial measure under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Future Growth Opportunities

Pursuant to an omnibus agreement that Teekay Offshore entered into in connection with its initial public offering in December 2006, Teekay Corporation (Teekay) is obligated to offer to the Partnership its interest in certain shuttle tankers, floating storage and offtake (FSO) units and floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) units Teekay owns or may acquire in the future, provided the vessels are servicing contracts with remaining durations of greater than three years. The Partnership may also acquire other vessels that Teekay may offer it from time to time and also intends to pursue direct acquisitions from third parties and new organic offshore projects.

Shuttle Tankers

In June 2011, the Partnership entered into a long-term contract with a subsidiary of BG Group plc (BG) to provide shuttle tanker services in Brazil. The contract with BG will be serviced by four Suezmax newbuilding shuttle tankers under construction by Samsung Heavy Industries for an estimated total delivered cost of approximately $470 million. Upon their scheduled deliveries in mid- to late-2013, the vessels will commence operations under 10-year, fixed-rate time-charter contracts. The contract with BG also includes certain extension options and vessel purchase options.

FPSO Units

As previously announced, on November 30, 2011, Teekay acquired from Sevan Marine ASA (Sevan) the Hummingbird Spirit FPSO unit (which is currently operating under a short-term charter contract), and agreed to acquire the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit in the fourth quarter of 2012. In the third quarter of 2012, Teekay Offshore agreed to acquire the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit from Teekay for $540 million upon commencement of the unit''s charter contract with E.ON, which is expected to be in mid-December 2012. Pursuant to the omnibus agreement, Teekay is obligated to offer the Hummingbird Spirit FPSO unit to Teekay Offshore within approximately one year following commencement of a charter contract with a firm period of greater than three years in duration.

Pursuant to the omnibus agreement and a subsequent agreement, Teekay is obligated to offer to sell the Petrojarl Foinaven FPSO unit, an existing unit owned by Teekay and operating under a long-term contract in the North Sea, to Teekay Offshore prior to July 9, 2013. The purchase price for the Petrojarl Foinaven would be its fair market value plus any additional tax or other costs incurred by Teekay to transfer ownership of this FPSO unit to the Partnership.

In October 2010, Teekay signed a long-term contract with Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. (or Petrobras) to provide an FPSO unit for the Tiro and Sidon fields located in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil. The contract with Petrobras will be serviced by a newly-converted FPSO unit named Cidade de Itajai in which Teekay owns a 50 percent interest. This FPSO unit is scheduled to deliver from the shipyard in mid-November 2012 and is expected to achieve first oil in the first quarter of 2013, at which time the unit is expected to commence a nine-year, fixed-rate time-charter contract with Petrobras with six additional one-year extension options. Pursuant to the omnibus agreement, Teekay is obligated to offer to the Partnership its 50 percent interest in this FPSO project at Teekay''s fully built-up cost, within approximately one year after the commencement of its charter with Petrobras.

In May 2011, Teekay entered into a joint venture agreement with Odebrecht Oil & Gas S.A. (a member of the Odebrecht group) to jointly pursue FPSO projects in Brazil. Odebrecht is a well-established Brazil-based company that operates in the engineering and construction, petrochemical, bioenergy, energy, oil and gas, real estate and environmental engineering sectors, with over 120,000 employees and a presence in over 20 countries. As part of the joint venture agreement, Odebrecht is a 50 percent partner in the Cidade de Itajai FPSO project and Teekay is currently working with Odebrecht on other FPSO project opportunities that, if awarded, may result in the Partnership being able to acquire Teekay''s interests in such projects pursuant to the omnibus agreement.

In June 2011, Teekay entered into a new contract with BG Norge Limited to provide a high-specification FPSO unit for the Knarr oil and gas field located in the North Sea. The contract will be serviced by a new FPSO unit to be constructed by Samsung Heavy Industries for a fully built-up cost of approximately $1 billion. Pursuant to the omnibus agreement, Teekay is obligated to offer to the Partnership its interest in this FPSO project at Teekay''s fully built-up cost, within approximately one year after the commencement of the charter, which is expected to commence in the first half of 2014.

Financial Summary

The Partnership reported adjusted net income attributable to the partners(1) (as detailed in Appendix A to this release) of $24.3 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, compared to $31.6 million for the same period of the prior year. Adjusted net income attributable to the partners excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of decreasing net income by $10.6 million and $106.7 million for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A. Including these items, the Partnership reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to the partners of $13.8 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared to a net loss of $75.1 million in the same period of the prior year.

For accounting purposes, the Partnership is required to recognize, through the consolidated statements of income (loss), changes in the fair value of certain derivative instruments as unrealized gains or losses. This revaluation does not affect the economics of any hedging transactions nor have any impact on the Partnership''s actual cash flows nor the calculation of its distributable cash flow.

  1. Adjusted net income attributable to the partners is a non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to Appendix A included in this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP and information about specific items affecting net income that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Partnership''s financial results.
  2. Net revenues represents revenues less voyage expenses, which comprise all expenses relating to certain voyages, including bunker fuel expenses, port fees, canal tolls and brokerage commissions. Net revenues is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the financial performance of shipping companies.

Shuttle Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership''s Shuttle Tanker segment increased to approximately $60.0 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to $55.2 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to decreases in vessel operating expenses and time-charter hire expense, partially offset by lower net revenues. Vessel operating expenses decreased due to lower repairs, maintenance and crewing costs and the lay-up of the shuttle tanker Navion Torinita commencing in the second quarter of 2012 upon expiration of its charter. Time-charter hire expense decreased due to the redelivery of one in-chartered vessel in the fourth quarter of 2011. Net revenues decreased due to the redelivery of one time-chartered out vessel in the third quarter of 2012.

Conventional Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership''s Conventional Tanker segment decreased to $9.7 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $22.2 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to the sales of the 1997-built Hamane Spirit in the second quarter of 2012 and the 1993-built Scotia Spirit in the third quarter of 2011 and the expiry of time-charter contracts on two conventional tankers during the fourth quarter of 2011.

FSO Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership''s FSO segment decreased to $4.1 million in the third quarter of 2012 compared to $7.5 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily as a result of the Navion Saga being in dry-dock during the third quarter of 2012.

FPSO Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership''s FPSO segment increased to $21.8 million for the third quarter of 2012 compared to $20.4 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to the acquisition of the Piranema Spirit FPSO unit on November 30, 2011.

Liquidity

As of September 30, 2012, the Partnership had total liquidity of $569.3 million, which consisted of $205.8 million in cash and cash equivalents and $363.5 million in undrawn revolving credit facilities. The Partnership intends to use approximately $170 million of this liquidity to complete the acquisition of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO later this year.

APPENDIX B - RECONCILIATION OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURE
(in thousands of U.S. dollars)

Description of Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Distributable Cash Flow (DCF)

Distributable cash flow represents net income (loss) adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-controlling interest, non-cash items, distributions relating to equity financing of newbuilding installments, vessel acquisition costs, estimated maintenance capital expenditures, unrealized gains and losses from derivatives, non-cash income taxes and unrealized foreign exchange related items. Maintenance capital expenditures represent those capital expenditures required to maintain over the long-term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by, the Partnership''s capital assets. Distributable cash flow is a quantitative standard used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership''s ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Distributable cash flow is not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net loss or any other indicator of the Partnership''s performance required by GAAP. The table below reconciles distributable cash flow to net income (loss) for the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

This release contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) which reflect management''s current views with respect to certain future events and performance, including statements regarding: factors affecting the Partnership''s future growth prospects and stability of its distributable cash flow, including the timing of the acquisition of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO from Teekay, and anticipated financing arrangements for this FPSO unit including a new debt facility and proceeds from a $40 million equity private placement to Teekay; the impact of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO acquisition on the Partnership''s distributable cash flows; the potential for Teekay to offer additional vessels to the Partnership and the Partnership''s acquisition of any such vessels, including the Petrojarl Foinaven, the Cidade de Itajai, the Hummingbird Spirit and the newbuilding FPSO unit that will service the Knarr field under contract with BG Norge Limited; the timing of delivery of vessels under construction or conversion; the timing and amount of future increases to the Partnership''s quarterly cash distribution, including the cash distribution for the first quarter of 2013 to be paid in May 2013; and the potential for the Partnership to acquire other vessels or offshore projects from Teekay or directly from third parties. The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: vessel operations and oil production volumes; significant changes in oil prices; variations in expected levels of field maintenance; increased operating expenses; different-than-expected levels of oil production in the North Sea and Brazil offshore fields; potential early termination of contracts; potential delays to the commencement of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO charter contract; failure of Teekay to offer to the Partnership additional vessels; the inability of the joint venture between Teekay and Odebrecht to secure new Brazil FPSO projects that may be offered for sale to the Partnership; failure to obtain required approvals by the Conflicts Committee of Teekay Offshore''s general partner to acquire other vessels or offshore projects from Teekay or third parties; the Partnership''s ability to raise adequate financing to purchase additional assets; and other factors discussed in Teekay Offshore''s filings from time to time with the SEC, including its Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011. The Partnership expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Partnership''s expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
