FRO - Termination of charter-in contract of Front Vanguard

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE via COMTEX) -- Frontline Ltd. ("Frontline" or the "Company") has agreed with Ship Finance International Limited ("Ship Finance") to terminate the long term charter for the 1998 built VLCC Front Vanguard. Ship Finance has simultaneously sold the vessel to an unrelated third party. We expect the vessel to cease operating as a conventional tanker and the charter with Ship Finance is expected to terminate in the second quarter of 2016.

Frontline has agreed a compensation payment to Ship Finance of approximately $0.4 million for the termination of the current charter.

Following this termination, the number of vessels on charter from Ship Finance will be reduced to 13 vessels, including 11 VLCCs and two Suezmax tankers.
