The marine energy transportation said in a press release that, as a result, it has increased its liquidity position by approximately $60 million after the repayment of outstanding debt related to these vessels. This financing was part of the Company's financing initiatives announced on August 2, 2018.

"We are pleased to have successfully executed on this significant financing initiative with the completion of this sale-leaseback transaction. We increased our net liquidity position by an additional $60 million, extended our debt maturity profile and continue to work on other liquidity initiatives," commented Kevin Mackay, Teekay Tankers' President and CEO.
