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 June 30, 2014. During the second quarter of 2014, the Partnership generated distributable cash flow(1) of $40.1 million, compared to $43.0 million in the same period of the prior year. The decrease in the distributable cash flow was primarily due to the expiration of time-charter contracts relating to four existing shuttle tankers since the first quarter of 2013, operating expenses relating to the HiLoad DP unit in the second quarter of 2014, the drydocking of the Dampier Spirit FSO unit during the second quarter of 2014 and due to the sale of three conventional tankers since the first quarter of 2013, partially offset by additional cash flows relating to the acquisition of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit and a 50 percent interest in the Cidade de Itajai FPSO unit in May 2013 and June 2013, respectively, and the delivery of the four BG Shuttle Tanker newbuildings in June, August and November 2013 and January 2014.


(1) Distributable cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain 
    investors to measure the financial performance of the Partnership and   
    other master limited partnerships. 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).                                           

On July 9, 2014, a cash distribution of $0.5384 per common unit was declared for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The cash distribution is payable on August 8, 2014 to all unitholders of record on July 25, 2014.

"The reduction in the Partnership's second quarter distributable cash flow mainly reflects a combination of temporary operational issues and cash flow timing differences related to certain of our offshore contracts," commented Peter Evensen, Teekay Offshore GP LLC's Chief Executive Officer. "While these matters have now largely been resolved, on a full-quarter basis, the affected fixed-rate contracts would have generated an additional $8 million of distributable cash flow during the second quarter of 2014."

"Looking forward, since reporting our first quarter results in May, the Partnership has completed its acquisition of Logitel Offshore and has made significant progress on its existing organic growth projects," Mr. Evensen continued. "The Logitel Offshore acquisition solidifies Teekay Offshore's entry into the high-specification floating accommodation sector, which provides the Partnership with further diversification and a complementary new channel for future distributable cash flow growth. In July, the conversion project of the Salamander FSO was completed and the unit has been installed on the Bualuang field in Thailand where it is currently undergoing testing in preparation for the expected commencement of its ten-year charter contract during August. And lastly, the operational testing of the innovative Remora HiLoad DP unit, the first of its kind, has been successful so far and is also expected to be completed in August, at which point the unit will commence its ten-year charter contract with Petrobras."

Mr. Evensen added, "In addition to these and other growth projects which provide a pipeline of direct growth for the Partnership between 2014 and 2017, we also have a number of dropdown growth opportunities available from our sponsor, Teekay Corporation, including up to five FPSO units, which must be offered to us once they are operating under eligible fixed-rate contracts. The largest and most near-term dropdown candidate, the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO, left the South Korean shipyard in July and is currently in transit to its North Sea field in preparation for its scheduled start-up in the fourth quarter of 2014."

Summary of Recent Events

Completed Logitel Acquisition

In August 2014, the Partnership acquired Logitel Offshore Holdings Ltd. (Logitel), a Norway-based company focused on the high-end floating accommodation market. Logitel is currently constructing two newbuilding floating accommodation units (FAUs), based on the Sevan Marine ASA (Sevan) cylindrical hull design, at the COSCO (Nantong) Shipyard (COSCO) in China. The Partnership intends to immediately exercise one of its existing six options with COSCO to construct a third FAU, subject to final documentation. Prior to the acquisition, Logitel secured a three-year fixed-rate charter contract, plus extension options, with Petroleo Brasileiro SA (Petrobras) in Brazil for the first FAU, which is scheduled to deliver in the first quarter of 2015. The Partnership expects to secure charter contracts for the remaining two newbuilding FAUs prior to their respective scheduled deliveries in the fourth quarter of 2015 and the third quarter of 2016. The construction agreements with COSCO for the newbuilding FAUs have a favorable payment schedule, with the majority of the purchase price due upon delivery. The Partnership intends to finance the initial newbuilding payments through its existing liquidity and expects to secure long-term debt financing for the units prior to their scheduled deliveries.

Libra FPSO Project

Odebrecht Oil & Gas S.A (Odebrecht), on behalf of the Partnership's 50/50 joint venture with Odebrecht, was recently nominated by Petrobras as the lead commercial bidder on the Libra FPSO project in Brazil, and has been invited by Petrobras to conclude contract negotiations. The FPSO unit is expected to be owned and operated by the Partnership's 50/50 joint venture with Odebrecht and will service the Libra pre-salt field in the Santos Basin offshore Brazil, which is expected to commence operations in early-2017. The final contract negotiations are expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2014.

      quarter of 2015 and the third quarter of 2016.                        

Other Future Growth Opportunities

Pursuant to an omnibus agreement that the Partnership entered into in connection with our initial public offering in December 2006, Teekay Corporation is obligated to offer to the Partnership its interest in certain shuttle tankers, FSO units and FPSO units 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.

Shuttle Tankers (including HiLoad DP Units)

In September 2013, the Partnership acquired a 2010-built HiLoad Dynamic Positioning (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. The HiLoad DP unit is currently in the final stages of the charterer's operational testing, which is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2014. Upon completion of the testing, the unit will commence its ten-year time-charter contract with Petrobras in Brazil. 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. In July 2013, Remora was awarded a contract by BG E&P Brasil Ltd. to perform 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 the capability to maneuver vessels larger than Suezmax conventional tankers.

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 will be serviced by a newbuilding FPSO unit, Petrojarl Knarr, which completed construction in late-June 2014. On July 11, 2014, the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO sailed away from the Samsung shipyard for the North Sea and following installation and offshore testing, the unit is expected to commence its ten-year time-charter contract with BG. Pursuant to the omnibus agreement, Teekay Corporation is obligated to offer to the Partnership its interest in the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO project at Teekay Corporation's fully built-up cost within a year after the commencement of the charter, which commencement is expected to occur in the fourth quarter of 2014.

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 fair market value.

Teekay Corporation owns three additional FPSO units, the Hummingbird Spirit FPSO, the Petrojarl Banff FPSO and the Petrojarl 1 FPSO, which may also be offered to the Partnership in the future pursuant to the omnibus agreement.

In May 2011, Teekay Corporation entered into a joint venture agreement with Odebrecht (a member of the Odebrecht group) to jointly pursue FPSO projects in Brazil. Odebrecht is a well-established Brazil-based company that operates in the engineering and construction, petrochemical, bioenergy, energy, oil and gas, real estate and environmental engineering sectors, with over 120,000 employees and a presence in over 20 countries. Through the joint venture agreement, Odebrecht became a 50 percent partner in the Cidade de Itajai FPSO and the Partnership is currently working with Odebrecht on other FPSO project opportunities.

FSO Units

In May 2013, the Partnership entered into a ten-year charter contract, plus extension options, with Salamander Energy plc (Salamander) to supply an FSO unit in Asia. In July 2014, the Partnership completed the conversion of its 1993-built shuttle tanker, the Navion Clipper, into an FSO unit for an estimated fully built-up cost of approximately $73 million, including mobilization costs. The unit is currently undergoing field installation and is expected to commence its charter contract with Salamander in the third quarter of 2014.

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 located in the North Sea. The contract will be serviced by a new FSO unit that will be converted from the 1995-built shuttle tanker, the Randgrid, which the Partnership currently owns through a 67 percent-owned subsidiary and will acquire full ownership of the vessel prior to its conversion. The FSO conversion project is expected to cost approximately $280 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 to Statoil, which includes 12 additional one-year extension options.

Towage Vessels

In March 2014, Teekay Offshore acquired ALP Maritime Services B.V. (ALP), a Netherlands-based provider of long-haul ocean towage and offshore installation services to the global offshore oil and gas industry. ALP currently provides these services through a fleet of third-party owned vessels. As part of the transaction, the Partnership and 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 anchor handling vessel newbuildings, which will be equipped with dynamic positioning capability, for a fully built-up cost of approximately $261 million, which includes the cost of acquiring ALP. These newbuildings will be capable of ultra-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 and are scheduled to deliver throughout 2016.

Financial Summary

The Partnership reported adjusted net income attributable to the partners(1) of $23.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $9.7 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 $29.2 million and increasing net income by $47.9 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Partnership reported, on a GAAP basis, net loss attributable to the partners of $5.5 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to net income of $57.6 million in the same period of the prior year. Net revenues(2) increased to $215.1 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared to $199.1 million in the same period of the prior year.

The Partnership reported adjusted net income attributable to the partners(1) of $54.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $28.6 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 $53.0 million and increasing net income by $49.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A to this release. Including these items, the Partnership reported, on a GAAP basis, net income attributable to the partners of $1.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $77.7 million in the same period of the prior year. Net revenues(2) increased to $440.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014, compared to $388.3 million in the same period of the prior year.


(1) Adjusted net income attributable to the partners is a non-GAAP financial
    measure. 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 (loss) income that are typically excluded by securities   
    analysts in their published estimates of the Partnership's financial    
    results.                                                                
(2) Net revenues is a non-GAAP financial measure used by certain investors  
    to measure the financial performance of shipping companies. Please refer
    to Appendix C included in this release for a reconciliation of this non-
    GAAP measure to the most directly comparable financial measure under    
    GAAP.                                                                   

Adjusted net income attributable to the partners for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 increased from the same periods in the prior year, mainly due to the acquisitions of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit and a 50 percent interest in the Cidade de Itajai FPSO unit in the second quarter of 2013 and the commencement of the time-charters with a subsidiary of BG Group plc for four newbuilding shuttle tankers (BG Shuttle Tankers) in June, August and November 2013 and January 2014. These increases were partially offset by the sale or lay-up of four older shuttle and conventional tankers during 2013 and 2014 as their related charter contracts expired or terminated. For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, the indemnification payments received from Teekay Corporation for the Voyageur Spirit FPSO off-hire of $12.5 million was not included in adjusted net income but rather 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.

    represents income from vessel operations before depreciation and        
    amortization expense and amortization of in-process revenue contracts   
    and deferred gains, and includes the realized gains (losses) on the     
    settlement of foreign exchange forward contracts, and cash flow from    
    vessel operations relating to its discontinued operations and           
    adjustments for direct financing leases to a cash basis. CFVO is a non- 
    GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the         
    financial performance of shipping companies. Please refer to Appendix E 
    included in this release for a description and reconciliation of this   
    non-GAAP measure to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
(3) CFVO from equity accounted vessel represents the Partnership's 50       
    percent share of CFVO from the Cidade deItajai FPSO unit. Please see    
    Appendix F for a description and reconciliation of CFVO from equity     
    accounted vessel (a non-GAAP measure) as used in this release to the    
    most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.                        
(4) The total column includes a $1.6 million fee paid to Teekay Corporation 
    associated with the Partnership's acquisition of ALP Maritime Services  
    B.V. (ALP) in CFVO from consolidated vessels and Total CFVO. This fee   
    was recognized in general and administrative expenses in the            
    consolidated statement of (loss) income for the three months ended June 
    30, 2014. The towage segment has not been disaggregated as its results  
    are not material.                                                       

Shuttle Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Shuttle Tanker segment increased to $61.2 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $54.4 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to the delivery of the four BG Shuttle Tanker newbuildings in June, August and November 2013 and January 2014, partially offset by the expiration of time-charter out contracts relating to four existing shuttle tankers since the first quarter of 2013 and operating expenses relating to the HiLoad DP unit, which commenced operations during the second quarter of 2014. Revenue on the HiLoad DP unit, retroactive to April 11, 2014, will be recorded following completion of tests for Petrobras, which is expected in late August 2014.

FPSO Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's FPSO segment, including one equity-accounted FPSO unit, increased to $40.7 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared to $18.5 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to additional cash flows related to the acquisition of the Voyageur Spirit FPSO unit and a 50 percent interest in the Cidade de Itajai FPSO unit in May 2013 and June 2013, respectively. Cash received related to the Voyageur Spirit indemnification of $12.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2013 was not included as part of cash flow from vessel operations.

FSO Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's FSO segment decreased to $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $6.7 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due the drydocking of the Dampier Spirit FSO in the second quarter of 2014 for upgrades required for its 10-year contract extension with Apache Energy. The unit returned on-hire in late-June 2014.

Conventional Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Conventional Tanker segment decreased to $5.6 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared to $11.8 million for the same period of the prior year, primarily due to the sale of three conventional tankers since the first quarter of 2013.

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, representing limited partner interests, at market prices up to a maximum aggregate amount of $100 million. During the second quarter of 2014, the Partnership sold 211,350 common units under the COP, generating proceeds of approximately $7.6 million (including the general partner's 2 percent proportionate capital contribution). The net proceeds from the issuance of these common units were used for general partnership purposes.

In May 2014, the partnership issued $300.0 million in new senior unsecured, non-rated bonds in the United States bond market, which mature in January 2019. The bonds are listed on the New York Stock Exchange and pay a fixed coupon of 6.0 percent per annum. Net proceeds from the bond offering were used for general partnership purposes.

As of June 30, 2014, the Partnership had total liquidity of $530.7 million, which consisted of $251.6 million in cash and cash equivalents and $279.1 million in undrawn revolving credit facilities.

(1) Foreign exchange losses (gains) 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 repurchase of Norwegian Kroner   
    bonds 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 (gains) 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 swap 
    within the Cidade de Itajai FPSO equity accounted joint venture and     
    excluding amounts relating to the Dropdown Predecessor.                 
(3) Related to components of net loss from discontinued operations. The     
    results for the three months ended June 30, 2013 include the termination
    fee received from Teekay Corporation upon cancellation of the Gotland   
    Spirit time-charter contract, partially offset by the write down of the 
    Gotland Spirit to its estimated fair value in conjunction with the      
    termination of its charter contract and the loss on sale of the Poul    
    Spirit. In addition, the results for the six months ended June 30, 2013 
    include the termination fee received from Teekay Corporation upon       
    cancellation of the Poul Spirit time-charter contract, partially offset 
    by the write down of the Poul Spirit to its estimated fair value in     
    conjunction with the termination of its charter contract.               
(4) Reflects the realized losses on foreign currency forward contracts      
    entered into for the purchase of the HiLoad DP unit from Remora AS that 
    is not designated as hedges for accounting purposes.                    
(5) Other items primarily include fees of $1.6 million paid to Teekay       
    Corporation and $2.6 million for the three and six months ended June 30,
    2014, respectively, associated with the Partnership's acquisition of    
    ALP. Other items for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014       
    include a restructuring charge reimbursement of $0.8 million for the    
    reorganization of the Partnership's shuttle tanker marine operations,   
    which were completed by June 2013. Other items for the three and six    
    months ended June 30, 2013 primarily includes restructuring charges of  
    $1.4 million and $2.1 million, respectively, relating to the            
    reorganization of the Partnership's marine operations to create better  
    alignment with its shuttle tanker and conventional tanker business units
    and a lower-cost organization.                                          
(6) Loss on bond repurchase for the six months ended June 30, 2013 relates  
    to the repurchase of NOK 388.5 million of the Partnership's then        
    existing NOK 600 million bond issue at a premium in January 2013.       
(7) 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.
(8) Adjusted net income attributable to the partners excludes               
    indemnification payments from Teekay Corporation relating to the loss of
    revenues and certain unrecovered vessel operating expenses for the      
    Voyageur Spirit FPSO, which for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was  
    $3.5 million and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 was   
    $17.0 million.

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, unrealized gains and losses from derivatives, non-cash income taxes, foreign currency 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 June 30, 2014 and June 30, 2013, respectively.

Description of Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Cash Flow from Vessel Operations from Consolidated Vessels

Cash flow from vessel operations from consolidated vessels represents income from vessel operations before depreciation and amortization expense, write-down of vessels and amortization of deferred gains, and includes the realized (losses) gains on the settlement of foreign exchange forward contracts, and cash flow from vessel operations relating to its discontinued operations and adjustments for direct financing leases to a cash basis. Cash flow from vessel operations is included because certain investors use this data to measure a company's financial performance. Cash flow from vessel operations is not required 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.

        CASH FLOW FROM VESSEL OPERATIONS FROM EQUITY ACCOUNTED VESSEL       
                       (in thousands of U.S. dollars)                       

Description of Non-GAAP Financial Measure - Cash Flow from Vessel Operations from Equity Accounted Vessel

Cash flow from vessel operations from equity accounted vessel represents income from vessel operations before depreciation and amortization expense. Cash flow from equity accounted vessel represents the Partnership's proportionate share of cash flow from vessel operations from its equity-accounted vessel, the Cidade de Itajai FPSO unit. Cash flow from vessel operations from equity accounted vessel is included because certain investors use cash flow from vessel operations to measure a company's financial performance, and to highlight this measure for the Partnership's equity accounted joint venture. Cash flow from vessel operations from equity accounted vessel is not required by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to equity income or any other indicator of the Partnership's performance required by GAAP.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This release contains forward-looking statements (as defined in Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) which reflect management's current views with respect to certain future events and performance, including statements regarding: the fundamentals in the offshore industry; future growth opportunities, including the Partnership's ability to participate in new offshore projects or to grow organically; the accretive nature of any acquisitions and any future increases in the Partnership's distributable cash flows; the timing of new and converted vessel deliveries and commencement of their time-charter contracts; the potential for the Partnership to acquire future HiLoad projects and improved features of new HiLoad DP vessel designs; the effect of the Logitel acquisition on the Partnership's future cash flows and growth opportunities; the Partnership's intention to exercise its option on the third FAU unit; the timing and certainty of entering into long-term financing and charter contracts for the FAU newbuildings prior to their deliveries; the estimated cost of building or converting vessels or offshore units; the timing and certainty of the Partnership's joint venture with Odebrecht completing final contract negotiations for the Libra FPSO project with Petrobras; and the potential for Teekay Corporation or third parties to offer additional vessels or projects to the Partnership and the Partnership agreeing to acquire such vessels or projects, including the timing and certainty of the acquisition of the Petrojarl Knarr FPSO.

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 delays and cost overruns; failure by the Partnership to secure financing or charter contracts for FAU newbuildings; failure to complete documentation related to the third FAU unit; 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 complete the operational testing of the HiLoad DP unit; actual results of the new HiLoad DP unit designs; failure of Teekay Corporation to offer to the Partnership additional vessels or of Sevan, Remora or Odebrecht to develop new vessels or projects; failure by the Partnership's joint venture with Odebrecht to complete final contract negotiations with Petrobras for the Libra FPSO project; potential delays in the commencement of operations of the Petrojarl 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 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, 2013. 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.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robin Raymond, Chief Architect at Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services ...
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
