Addition of Long-range Coated Panamax Tankers Broadens Service Offering to Customers

NEW YORK -- Overseas Shipholding Group, Inc. (NYSE:OSG) announced today that it will build four 73,500 dwt coated Panamax product carriers, or LR1 tankers, at the SPP Plant and Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. based in Tong Yang, South Korea. The vessels are scheduled for delivery in 2010 and 2011.

The new vessels bring OSG's total fleet to 147 vessels, of which 107 are operating and an additional 40 vessels are slated for delivery between 2007 and 2011.
