HAMILTON, BERMUDA–(Marketwire – April 12, 2012) – Teekay Offshore GP LLC, the general partner of Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. (Teekay Offshore) (NYSE:TOO), has declared a cash distribution of $0.5125 per unit for the quarter ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $0.0125 per unit, or 2.5 percent, from the previous quarter. The cash distribution is payable on May 14, 2012 to all unitholders of record on April 23, 2012.
“Today’s distribution increase reflects the additional cash flows resulting from the Partnership’s November 2011 acquisition of the Piranema Spirit FPSO which is operating under a long-term fixed-rate contract to Petrobras in Brazil,” commented Peter Evensen, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay GP LLC. “Given our expanded FPSO footprint, the attractive near- and long-term fundamentals in our core North Sea and Brazil markets and visible growth opportunities available from our sponsor, Teekay Corporation, we believe the Partnership remains well positioned for future distributable cash flow growth.”
