Frontline Ltd.: FRO - Termination of charter-in contract of Front Vanguard

Frontline Ltd. ("Frontline" or the "Company") has agreed with Ship Finance
International Limited ("Ship Finance") to terminate the long term charter for
the 1998 built VLCC Front Vanguard. Ship Finance has simultaneously sold the
vessel to an unrelated third party. We expect the vessel to cease operating
as a conventional tanker and the charter with Ship Finance is expected to
terminate in the second quarter of 2016.

Frontline has agreed a compensation payment to Ship Finance of approximately
$0.4 million for the termination of the current charter.

Following this termination, the number of vessels on charter from Ship Finance
will be reduced to 13 vessels, including 11 VLCCs and two Suezmax tankers.
