Net revenues fell

Along with a fall in revenues, Tsakos Energy Navigation’s net revenues also fell. In 3Q16, the net revenues were $81.8 million—compared to $118 in the previous quarter and $109 million in 3Q15.

Factors that contributed to lower revenues

It’s important to note that 3Q16 wasn’t good to the crude tanker industry. Along with the usual summer factors, new additions to the global fleet, lower refinery production, and the falling oil supply were the prominent reasons for weak industry crude tanker rates.

Company-specific factors like redeployment and dry docking of the LNG carrier Neo Energy—the major earner in the previous quarter, and four scheduled dry dockings impacted the company’s revenue.

Tsakos is securing more long-term time charter contracts. In the future, we should see more stable revenues for the company. Also, the company is expected to take delivery of seven newbuilds in the coming year. It will add to the company’s revenue.
