Teekay Offshore GP LLC, the general partner of Teekay Offshore Partners L.P. (Teekay Offshore or the Partnership) (NYSE:TOO), today reported the Partnership's results for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. During the first quarter of 2015, the Partnership generated distributable cash flow(1) of $60.6 million, compared to $51.1 million in the same period of the prior year. The increase in distributable cash flow was primarily due to the acquisition of three long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels during the first quarter of 2015, the delivery of the Suksan Salamander floating storage and offtake (FSO) unit in August 2014, an increase in the charter rate on the Cidade de Rio das Ostras floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) unit, and a decrease in operating expenses. These increases were partially offset by lower shuttle tanker revenues resulting from the sale of the Navion Norvegia in October 2014 to the Partnership's 50 percent-owned joint venture company, which is currently being converted into an FPSO unit, and the sale of the 1997-built Navion Svenita in March 2015.

On April 2, 2015, a cash distribution of $0.5384 per common unit was declared for the quarter ended March 31, 2015. The cash distribution will be paid on May 15, 2015 to all unitholders of record on April 13, 2015.

"The Partnership's strong first quarter cash flows and distribution coverage were largely due to higher utilization in our shuttle tanker fleet and lower operating expenses across the fleet, supported by our diversified portfolio of fixed-rate contracts," commented Peter Evensen, Teekay Offshore GP LLC's Chief Executive Officer.

"Teekay Offshore continued to make progress during the quarter on several projects that will contribute to cash flow growth in future quarters," Mr. Evensen continued. "Most notably, in March, the Knarr FPSO achieved first oil and commenced its charter contract with BG Group at partial rate. Subject to the unit completing certain operational tests and commencement of the full charter rate, we expect to acquire the Knarr FPSO from Teekay Corporation in the second quarter of 2015, which will allow the Partnership to increase its cash distributions following the acquisition. Our other major FPSO projects, the Petrojarl I FPSO upgrade and the Libra FPSO conversion, are also well underway and remain on track for start-up in mid-2016 and early-2017, respectively. In our offshore logistics business, we took delivery of the Arendal Spirit, our first modern floating Unit for Maintenance and Safety, or UMS, which is expected to commence its charter contract with Petrobras in June 2015, our wholly-owned subsidiary ALP Maritime has taken delivery of four of the six modern long-distance towing vessels it agreed to acquire last October, and the Randgrid shuttle tanker is currently in-transit to a shipyard in Singapore to be converted for the Gina Krog FSO project and is on track for start-up in early-2017."

"In addition to over $3.3 billion of committed capital projects delivering over the next three years," Mr. Evensen added, "we continue to bid on new offshore growth projects and on-the-water acquisitions."

Please see Appendix B for a reconciliation of distributable cash flow to the most directly comparable financial measure under United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP).

Future Growth Opportunities

Pursuant to an omnibus agreement that the Partnership entered into in connection with its initial public offering in December 2006, Teekay Corporation is obligated to offer to the Partnership its interests in certain shuttle tankers, FSO units and FPSO units that Teekay Corporation owns or may acquire in the future, provided the vessels are servicing contracts with remaining durations of greater than three years. The Partnership may also acquire other vessels that Teekay Corporation may offer it from time to time and also intends to pursue direct acquisitions from third parties and new organic offshore projects.

Offshore Production

FPSO Units

In June 2011, Teekay Corporation entered into a contract with BG Norge Limited (BG) to provide a harsh weather FPSO unit to operate in the North Sea. The contract is being serviced by a newbuilding FPSO unit, the Petrojarl Knarr (Knarr), which achieved first oil and commenced its charter contract with BG in mid-March 2015 at partial rate. In December 2014, the Partnership's Board of Directors approved the acquisition of the Knarr FPSO unit from Teekay Corporation, subject to the unit completing certain operational tests and commencing its charter contract at full rate, which is expected to occur during the second quarter of 2015. The purchase price for the Knarr, which is based on a fully built-up cost of approximately $1.25 billion, is expected to be financed through the assumption of an existing $780 million long-term debt facility, a combination of vendor financing from and new common equity units to be issued to Teekay Corporation, and a portion of the approximately $121 million of net proceeds from the Partnership's preferred unit public offering completed in April 2015.

In December 2014, Teekay Offshore entered into an agreement with a consortium led by Queiroz Galvão Exploração e Produção SA (QGEP) to provide an FPSO unit for the Atlanta field located in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil. In connection with the QGEP contract, the Partnership acquired the Petrojarl I FPSO unit from Teekay Corporation for $57 million and the unit is currently undergoing upgrades at the Damen Shipyard Group's DSR Schiedam Shipyard in the Netherlands for a fully built-up cost of approximately $232 million, including the cost of acquiring the Petrojarl I. The unit is scheduled to commence operations in mid-2016 under a five-year fixed-rate charter contract with QGEP. The FPSO will be used as an early production system unit on the Atlanta field, which is located 185 kilometers offshore from the Brazil coast at a water depth of approximately 1,550 meters and contains an estimated 260 million recoverable barrels of oil equivalent.

In January 2015, Teekay Offshore, through its 50/50 joint venture with Odebrecht Oil & Gas S.A (Odebrecht), finalized the contract with Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) to provide an FPSO unit for the Libra field located in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil. The contract will be serviced by a new FPSO unit converted from the Partnership's 1995-built shuttle tanker, the Navion Norvegia. The conversion project is currently underway at Sembcorp Marine's Jurong Shipyard in Singapore and is scheduled to commence operations in early-2017 under a 12-year firm period fixed-rate contract with Petrobras and its international partners. The FPSO conversion is expected to be completed for a total fully built-up cost of approximately $1 billion.

Pursuant to the omnibus agreement and subsequent agreements, Teekay Corporation is obligated to offer to sell to the Partnership the Petrojarl Foinaven FPSO unit, an existing unit owned by Teekay Corporation and operating under a long-term contract in the North Sea, subject to approvals required from the charterer. The purchase price for the Petrojarl Foinaven would be based on its fair market value.

Teekay Corporation owns two additional FPSO units, the Hummingbird Spirit and the Petrojarl Banff, which may also be offered to the Partnership in the future pursuant to the omnibus agreement.

Offshore Logistics

Shuttle Tankers (including HiLoad DP Units)

In early-May 2015, the Partnership was awarded a two-year shuttle tanker contract of affreightment (CoA) with EnQuest PLC. (EnQuest), which will service the Alma Galia field in the North Sea. The CoA is expected to start-up in July 2015 with the requirement for up to 15 roundtrip voyages per year.

In December 2013, the Partnership was awarded a six-year shuttle tanker CoA, with extension options for up to an additional four years, with BG, which will service the Knarr oil and gas field in the North Sea. The CoA has partially commenced with the recent discharging of the Knarr FPSO unit's first cargo in April 2015 and is expected to ramp up as the Knarr FPSO moves into full production, which is expected in the second quarter of 2015.

In September 2013, the Partnership acquired a 2010-built HiLoad DP unit from Remora AS (Remora), a Norway-based offshore marine technology company, for a total purchase price of approximately $60 million, including modification and mobilization costs. In late-December 2014, the Partnership received notification from Petrobras that the HiLoad DP unit did not meet certain test criteria under the time-charter contract required by Petrobras to commence Brazilian offshore operations. The Partnership continues to believe in the application of HiLoad technology for safe and economical offshore loading operations and is currently reviewing various alternatives. In July 2013, Remora was awarded a contract by BG E&P Brasil Ltd. to undertake a front-end engineering and design (FEED) study to develop the next generation of HiLoad DP units. The design, which is based on the main parameters of the first generation design, is expected to include new features such as increased engine power and capability to maneuver vessels larger than Suezmax conventional tankers. Under the terms of an agreement between Remora and Teekay Offshore, the Partnership has a right of first refusal to acquire any future HiLoad DP projects developed by Remora.

FSO Units

In May 2013, the Partnership entered into an agreement with Statoil Petroleum AS (Statoil), on behalf of the field license partners, to provide an FSO unit for the Gina Krog oil and gas field in the North Sea. The contract will be serviced by a new FSO unit converted from the 1995-built shuttle tanker, the Randgrid, which the Partnership currently owns through a 67 percent-owned subsidiary. The Partnership will acquire full ownership of the vessel prior to its conversion. The FSO conversion project is expected to cost approximately $276 million, including amounts reimbursable upon delivery of the unit relating to installation and mobilization, and the cost of acquiring the remaining 33 percent ownership interest in the Randgrid shuttle tanker. Following scheduled completion in early-2017, the newly converted FSO unit will commence operations under a three-year time-charter contract with Statoil, which includes 12 additional one-year extension options.

Units for Maintenance and Safety

In August 2014, the Partnership acquired Logitel Offshore Holding AS (Logitel), a Norway-based company focused on the high-end UMS market. Prior to being acquired by the Partnership, Logitel secured a three-year fixed-rate time-charter contract, plus extension options, with Petrobras in Brazil for the first UMS, the Arendal Spirit, which was delivered to the Partnership during the first quarter of 2015 and is expected to commence its time-charter contract in June 2015. In addition, Logitel is currently constructing two additional UMS newbuildings, based on the Sevan Marine ASA (Sevan) cylindrical hull design, at the COSCO (Nantong) Shipyard (COSCO) in China for a total cost of approximately $404 million. The Partnership intends to secure charter contracts for these two UMS newbuildings prior to their deliveries which are currently scheduled for the first quarter of 2016 and the fourth quarter of 2016, respectively; however, the Partnership has the option to defer the delivery of these two units by up to one year. In addition, the Partnership currently holds options to order up to an additional five UMS newbuildings from the COSCO shipyard.

Long-Distance Towing and Offshore Installation Vessels

In March 2014, Teekay Offshore, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, ALP Maritime Services B.V. (ALP), entered into an agreement with Niigata Shipbuilding & Repair of Japan for the construction of four state-of-the-art SX-157 Ulstein Design ultra-long distance towing and offshore installation vessel newbuildings, which will be equipped with DP capabilities, for a fully built-up cost of approximately $258 million and are scheduled to deliver in 2016.

In late-October 2014, ALP agreed to acquire six modern on-the-water long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels for approximately $220 million. The vessels were built between 2006 and 2010 and are all equipped with DP capabilities. ALP has now taken delivery of four vessels and expects to take delivery of the remaining two vessels near the end of the second quarter of 2015. Including these vessels and ALP's four state-of-the-art long-distance towing and offshore installation newbuildings, ALP will become the world's largest owner and operator of DP long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels. All ten vessels will be capable of long-distance towing and offshore unit installation and decommissioning of large floating exploration, production and storage units, including FPSO units, floating liquefied natural gas (FLNG) units and floating drill rigs.

Financial Summary

The Partnership reported adjusted net income attributable to the partners(1) of $40.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2015, compared to $31.2 million for the same period of the prior year. Adjusted net income attributable to the partners excludes a number of specific items that had the net effect of decreasing net income by $57.7 million and $23.8 million for the quarters ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, primarily relating to unrealized losses on derivative instruments and foreign currency and write-down and gain on sale of vessels, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Partnership reported, on a GAAP basis, a net loss attributable to the partners of $17.2 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared to net income attributable to the partners of $7.3 million in the same period of the prior year. Net revenues(2) increased to $228.4 million for the first quarter of 2015, compared to $225.8 million in the same period of the prior year.

Adjusted net income attributable to the partners for the three months ended March 31, 2015 increased from the same period in the prior year mainly due to a reduction in operating expenses primarily due to the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar against the Norwegian Kroner and Brazilian Real and the timing of maintenance campaigns, lower time-charter hire expense, higher charter rates on the Cidade de Rio das Ostras FPSO unit as the unit was in operation throughout the first quarter of 2015 whereas it was earning a reduced charter rate while repositioning during the same period last year, an increase in revenues for the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit as the unit was declared on-hire during the second quarter of 2014, and the delivery of the Suksan Salamander FSO unit and three long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels in August 2014 and the first quarter of 2015, respectively. These increases were partially offset by lower shuttle tanker revenues resulting from the sale of the Navion Norvegia to the Partnership's 50 percent-owned joint venture company, which is currently being converted into an FPSO unit, and the sale of the Navion Svenita in March 2015. For the three months ended March 31, 2014, indemnification payments of $3.5 million received from Teekay Corporation related to the Voyageur Spirit FPSO off-hire were not included in adjusted net income but instead were accounted for as an equity adjustment.

For accounting purposes, the Partnership is required to recognize, through the consolidated statements of (loss) income, changes in the fair value of derivative instruments as unrealized gains or losses. This revaluation does not affect the economics of any hedging transactions nor does it have any impact on the Partnership's actual cash flows or the calculation of its distributable cash flow.

Please refer to Appendix A included in this release for a reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable financial measure under GAAP and information about specific items affecting net income that are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Partnership's financial results.

Please see Appendix F for a description and reconciliation of CFVO from equity accounted vessels (a non-GAAP measure) as used in this release to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Shuttle Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Shuttle Tanker segment increased to $67.7 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $62.0 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to lower crewing expenses resulting from the change in crew mix on one of the shuttle tankers and the appreciation of the U.S. Dollar against the Norwegian Kroner, lower time-charter hire expense by utilizing the Partnership's owned fleet and lower operating expenses related to the timing of maintenance programs. These increases were partially offset by the redelivery of one shuttle tanker in February 2014 as it completed its time-charter-out agreement and the sale of the Navion Svenita in March 2015.

FPSO Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's FPSO segment, including equity-accounted FPSO units, increased to $53.0 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $41.8 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to lower operating expenses as a result of the strengthening of the U.S. Dollar associated with Norwegian and Brazilian crew wages and the timing of maintenance campaigns, an increase in revenues from the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit as the unit was declared on-hire during the second quarter of 2014 and higher revenue from the Cidade de Rio das Ostras FPSO unit as the units was in operations throughout the first quarter of 2015 whereas it was earning a reduced charter rate during the same period last year while repositioning. Cash received from Teekay Corporation in relation to the Voyageur Spirit indemnification of $3.5 million during the three months ended March 31, 2014 was not included as part of cash flow from vessel operations, but was instead accounted for as an equity adjustment.

FSO Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's FSO segment of $8.5 million for the first quarter of 2015 was consistent with the same period of the prior year. The delivery of the Suksan Salamander FSO in August 2014 was offset by the re-contracting of the Pattani Spirit FSO at a lower charter rate in April 2014.

Conventional Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Conventional Tanker segment increased to $5.9 million for the first quarter of 2015 compared to $4.9 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to a higher amount of reimbursed fuel expenses.

Towage Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Towage segment of $2.1 million for the first quarter of 2015 relates to the three long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels acquired during the first quarter of 2015.

Liquidity and Continuous Offering Program Update

In 2013, the Partnership implemented a continuous offering program (COP) under which the Partnership may issue new common units at market prices up to a maximum aggregate amount of $100 million. As at March 31, 2015, the Partnership had sold an aggregate of 296,858 common units under the COP, generating proceeds of approximately $10.0 million (including the Partnership's general partner's two percent proportionate capital contribution and net of offering costs). The Partnership did not sell any common units under the COP during the first quarter of 2015.

In April 2015, the Partnership completed a $125 million 8.5 percent perpetual preferred unit public offering raising net proceeds of approximately $121.1 million. The net proceeds from the public offering will be used for general partnership purposes, including the funding of newbuilding installments, capital conversion projects and vessel acquisitions, which may include funding the Partnership's acquisition of the Knarr FPSO unit from Teekay Corporation.

As of March 31, 2015, the Partnership had total liquidity of $278.8 million, which consisted of cash and cash equivalents. Giving pro-forma effect to the $121.1 million of net proceeds from the Partnership's preferred unit public offering completed in April 2015, the Partnership's liquidity as at March 31, 2015 would have been $399.9 million.

APPENDIX A - SPECIFIC ITEMS AFFECTING NET (LOSS) INCOME

(in thousands of U.S. dollars)

Set forth below is a reconciliation of the Partnership's unaudited adjusted net income attributable to the partners, a non-GAAP financial measure, to net (loss) income attributable to the partners as determined in accordance with GAAP. The Partnership believes that, in addition to conventional measures prepared in accordance with GAAP, certain investors use this information to evaluate the Partnership's financial performance. The items below are also typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Partnership's financial results. Adjusted net income attributable to the partners is intended to provide additional information and should not be considered a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

Net (loss) income - GAAP basis (13,228 ) 9,022
Adjustments:
Net income attributable to non-controlling interests (3,998 ) (1,679 )
Net (loss) income attributable to the partners (17,226 ) 7,343
Add (subtract) specific items affecting net income :

Total adjustments 57,734 23,833
Adjusted net income attributable to the partners 40,508 31,176
(1) Foreign currency exchange losses primarily relate to the Partnership's revaluation of all foreign currency-denominated monetary assets and liabilities based on the prevailing exchange rate at the end of each reporting period and unrealized gains or losses related to the Partnership's cross currency swaps and excludes the realized gains and losses relating to the cross currency swaps for outstanding Norwegian bonds of the Partnership.
(2) Reflects the unrealized losses due to changes in the mark-to-market value of interest rate swaps and foreign exchange forward contracts that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes, including the unrealized mark-to-market value of the interest rate swaps within the Cidade de Itajai FPSO and Libra FPSO equity accounted joint ventures.
(3) (Write-down) and gain on sale of vessels for the three months ended March 31, 2015 includes the impairment of two 1990s-built shuttle tankers to their estimated fair values. The write-downs were the result of a recent change in the operating plans of one vessel and the expected sale of one vessel. (Write-down) and gain on sale of vessels for the three months ended March 31, 2015 also includes a gain on the sale of a 1997-built shuttle tanker, the Navion Svenita.
(4) Reflects depreciation and amortization and the realized losses on foreign currency forward contracts relating to upgrade costs on the Petrojarl 1 FPSO unit.
(5) Other items for the three months ended March 31, 2014 includes restructuring charges relating to the reflagging of a vessel and a fee associated with the acquisition of ALP, partially offset by a seafarer pension credit.
(6) Items affecting net (loss) income include items from the Partnership's consolidated non-wholly-owned subsidiaries. The specific items affecting net (loss) income are analyzed to determine whether any of the amounts originated from a consolidated non-wholly-owned subsidiary. Each amount that originates from a consolidated non-wholly-owned subsidiary is multiplied by the non-controlling interests' percentage share in this subsidiary to arrive at the non-controlling interests' share of the amount. The amount identified as "non-controlling interests' share of items above" in the table above is the cumulative amount of the non-controlling interests' proportionate share of items listed in the table.

DISTRIBUTABLE CASH FLOW

(in thousands of U.S. dollars)

Description of Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Distributable Cash Flow (DCF)

Distributable cash flow represents net (loss) income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-controlling interests, non-cash items, distributions relating to equity financing of newbuilding installments and on our preferred units, vessel and business acquisition costs, estimated maintenance capital expenditures, gain on sale and write-down of vessels, unrealized gains and losses from derivatives, non-cash income taxes and unrealized foreign exchange related items. Maintenance capital expenditures represent those capital expenditures required to maintain over the long-term the operating capacity of, or the revenue generated by, the Partnership's capital assets. Distributable cash flow is a quantitative standard used in the publicly-traded partnership investment community to assist in evaluating a partnership's ability to make quarterly cash distributions. Distributable cash flow is not defined by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net (loss) income or any other indicator of the Partnership's performance required by GAAP. The table below reconciles distributable cash flow to net (loss) income for the quarters ended March 31, 2015 and March 31, 2014, respectively.

The following factors are among those that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties, and that should be considered in evaluating any such statement: vessel operations and oil production volumes; significant changes in oil prices; variations in expected levels of field maintenance; increased operating expenses; different-than-expected levels of oil production in the North Sea and Brazil offshore fields; potential early termination of contracts; shipyard delivery or vessel conversion and upgrade delays and cost overruns; failure by the Partnership to secure charter contracts for UMS newbuildings; changes in exploration, production and storage of offshore oil and gas, either generally or in particular regions that would impact expected future growth; delays in the commencement of time-charters; the inability to successfully secure a contract for the HiLoad DP unit; inability of Remora to develop innovations for future HiLoad DP unit designs; failure of the Partnership to receive offers for additional vessels or offshore units from Teekay Corporation, Sevan, Remora or third parties; failure by the Partnership to complete the acquisition of the remaining two long-distance towing and offshore installation vessels, including the transition of technical and commercial management of the vessels to ALP; potential delays in the commencement of full operations of the Knarr FPSO unit; failure to obtain required approvals by the Conflicts Committee of Teekay Offshore's general partner to approve the acquisition of vessels offered from Teekay Corporation, or third parties; the Partnership's ability to raise adequate financing to purchase additional assets and complete organic growth projects; and other factors discussed in Teekay Offshore's filings from time to time with the SEC, including its Report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014. The Partnership expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Partnership's expectations with respect thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
