What is a Revenue Sharing Agreement (RSA)?

23 September 2021

Teekay Tankers’ Revenue Sharing Agreement is a contract signed between Teekay’s Commercial Management Team and ship owners. Under this agreement, Teekay trades our partners’ vessels as if they were our own, and in turn, ship owners receive the stable and regular cash flow they need with the fair and transparent service they expect. 

With Teekay Tankers’ RSA, your success is our success. Teekay Tankers’ RSA exists not to generate fees, but to find strength in numbers to optimize performance within the Suezmax and Aframax/LR2 pools. We are uniquely positioned as a commercial manager operating in the tanker space because we have skin in the game.  You can trust that as ship owners ourselves, Teekay understands the cause, effect, and risks of every business decision we make – and we do not take our responsibility to our partners lightly.
