Teekay Tankers decided to join the 2013 ordering fest and opted for 4 LR2's. The company
also has the options for 12 more similar vessels. The timing seems kind of odd- late 2015
and 2016. I suppose, if the vessels are indeed 20-30% more fuel efficient than existing
LR2 vessels they might get a chartering edge when they eventually deliver.
