Teekay Tankers (TNK), Tsakos Energy Navigation (TNP), DHT Holdings (DHT), and Euronav (EURN) operate in the time charter market as well as the spot market.
Navios Maritime Midstream Partners has six VLCCs (very large crude carriers). Its revenue comes from three main customers—Cosco Dalian, Formosa Petrochemical, and SK Shipping. The revenue distribution from these customers is 75.6%, 18.3%, and 6.1%, respectively.
Navios Maritime Midstream Partners’ revenue for fiscal 2016 rose by $8.5 million to $91.8 million—compared to revenue of $83.4 million in 2015. In June 2015, the company acquired two tankers—Nave Celeste and the C. Dream. These acquisitions were the primary reasons behind the increased revenue. The increase was partially mitigated by a decrease of $3.2 million in profit sharing.
Navios Maritime Midstream Partners’ time charter equivalent for 2016 was $42,625—compared to $45,924 in 2015. The VLCCs acquired in June 2015 have a comparatively lower average charter rate than the existing fleet. It decreased the time charter equivalent.
Navios Maritime Midstream Partners will have very stable revenues in the upcoming quarters due to its time charter contracts.
