CEO Commentary:

We are pleased to report the results for the three months ended March 31, 2022.

All six LNG carriers in our fleet are operating under their respective long-term charters with international gas producers with an average remaining contract term of 6.6 years. As of June 27, 2022, our estimated contracted revenue backlog1 2 was $0.98 billion.

The earliest contracted re-delivery date for any of our six LNG carriers is in the third quarter of 2023 (for the Arctic Aurora), with the second earliest contracted re-delivery date in the first quarter of 2026 (for the Clean Energy), both subject to the terms of the applicable charter.

For the first quarter of 2022, we reported Net Income of $23.9 million, earnings per common unit of $0.57, Adjusted Net Income of $10.0 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $22.9 million. While future results may vary, we are pleased to report 100% utilization for our fleet for the eighth quarter in a row.

We are in a period of high demand for LNG shipping, which we believe will benefit the Partnership.

We continue our strategy of using our cash flow generation to deleverage our balance sheet and reinforce our liquidity so as to build equity value. This, we believe, will enhance our ability to pursue future growth initiatives.
