Teekay GP L.L.C., the general partner of Teekay LNG Partners L.P. (Teekay LNG or the Partnership) (NYSE: TGP), 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 $61.5 million, compared to $55.4 million in the same quarter of the previous year. The increase in distributable cash flow was primarily due the Partnership's acquisition and charter-back of two liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers from Awilco LNG ASA (Awilco) in September and November 2013, respectively, and higher earnings from the Partnership's LPG carriers within Exmar LPG BVBA (Exmar LPG Joint Venture), which were partially offset by reduced cash flow as a result of the sale of two 2000-built conventional tankers, Tenerife Spirit and Algeciras Spirit, in December 2013 and February 2014, respectively.

On July 9, 2014, the Partnership declared a cash distribution of $0.6918 per unit 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.

"In June and July, we finalized two notable transactions that we have been working on for some time that will provide future distributable cash flow growth for the Partnership and which highlight our new strategic relationships with China-based partners," commented Peter Evensen, Chief Executive Officer of Teekay GP LLC. "Through our new 50/50 joint venture with China LNG Shipping, we agreed to provide six icebreaker LNG carrier newbuildings for the Yamal LNG project which are scheduled to deliver in 2018 through 2020 and operate under fixed-rate contracts until 2045. And the Partnership acquired ownership interests, together with two China-based energy and shipping companies and one international shipping company, in four LNG carrier newbuildings to be built in China. These LNG carriers are scheduled to deliver in 2017 through 2019 at which time they will commence 20-year fixed-rate charter contracts with BG Group. Together, these two transactions provide additional diversification of the Partnership's fixed-rate contract portfolio and increase its total forward fixed-rate revenues to approximately $11 billion, while also extending the remaining weighted-average contract duration for our LNG carrier fleet to approximately 14 years. Looking ahead, the addition of these new vessels will further complement the Partnership's existing pipeline of growth projects, which includes 10 LPG carrier newbuildings, through our Exmar LPG joint venture, and five MEGI LNG carrier newbuildings, all scheduled for delivery between 2014 and 2018."

Mr. Evensen added, "We continue to see strong long-term fundamentals for marine-based liquefied gas transportation, which is already creating new opportunities for LNG and LPG shipping. In the United States alone, the expected start-up of several LNG liquefaction projects from 2016 onwards is expected to create demand for over 80 additional LNG carriers. With a solid operating track record, a steadily expanding fleet of modern fuel-efficient vessels, and a strong financial foundation, we believe Teekay LNG is well-positioned for future growth."

(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.

Recent Transactions

Finalized Contracts for Six Yamal LNG Carrier Newbuildings

In early-July 2014, the Partnership, through a new 50/50 joint venture with China LNG Shipping (Holdings) Limited (China LNG), finalized agreements to provide six internationally-flagged icebreaker LNG carriers for the Yamal LNG project located on the Yamal Peninsula in Northern Russia. The Yamal LNG project is a joint venture between Novatek, Total and China National Petroleum Corporation, and will consist of three LNG trains with a total capacity of 16.5 million metric tonnes per annum, and is currently scheduled to start-up in early-2018. The LNG is expected to be transported from Northern Russia to Europe and Asia. The Yamal LNG joint venture has announced that nearly all of the expected LNG production output of the project has already been agreed to be purchased by affiliates of the Yamal LNG project sponsors and other third parties.

Under the agreements, the joint venture will provide six 172,000 cubic meter (cbm) ARC7 LNG carrier newbuildings to be constructed by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. of South Korea for a total fully built-up cost of approximately $2.1 billion, which are scheduled to deliver between the first quarter of 2018 and the first quarter of 2020. The vessels, which will be constructed with maximum 2.1 meter icebreaking capabilities in both the forward and reverse direction, will each operate under time-charter contracts until December 31, 2045, plus extension options, following their respective deliveries.

Acquired Ownership Interests in Four LNG Carrier Newbuildings

In late-June 2014, the Partnership acquired from BG Group (BG) ownership interests in four 174,000 cbm Tri-Fuel Diesel Electric LNG carrier newbuildings, which will be constructed by Hudong-Zhonghua Shipbuilding (Group) Co., Ltd. in China for a total fully built-up cost of approximately $1.0 billion. The vessels, which are scheduled to deliver between September 2017 and January 2019, will each operate under 20-year time-charter contracts, plus extension options, with BG. The Partnership is responsible for the construction supervision services for the newbuildings and Teekay Corporation will provide the technical management of the vessels upon their respective deliveries.

Through this transaction, the Partnership acquired a 30 percent ownership in the first two LNG carrier newbuildings with the balance of ownership by CETS (an affiliate of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC)) and China LNG, and a 20 percent ownership interest in the second two LNG carrier newbuildings with the balance of ownership held by CETS, China LNG and BW Group.

The Partnership expects to finance its pro rata equity interest in future shipyard installment payments using a portion of its available liquidity with the balance of the total cost of the vessels financed with equity contributions by the other partners and a new $787 million long-term debt facility secured by the vessels.

Financial Summary

The Partnership reported adjusted net income attributable to the partners(1) (as detailed in Appendix A to this release) of $42.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014, compared to $41.5 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 increasing net income by $1.1 million and $28.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A. Including these items, the Partnership reported net income attributable to the partners, on a GAAP basis, of $43.6 million and $69.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Partnership reported adjusted net income attributable to the partners(1) (as detailed in Appendix A to this release) of $84.4 million, compared to $80.6 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 $2.5 million and increasing net income by $43.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, as detailed in Appendix A. Including these items, the Partnership reported net income attributable to the partners, on a GAAP basis, of $81.9 million and $124.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Adjusted net income attributable to the partners for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 increased from the same period in the prior year, mainly due to the acquisitions of, and contributions by, the two Awilco LNG carriers in late-2013, and higher earnings from the Partnership's LPG carriers in the Exmar LPG Joint Venture, which were partially offset by the sale of two 2000-built conventional tankers, Tenerife Spirit and Algeciras Spirit, in December 2013 and February 2014, respectively.

For accounting purposes, the Partnership is required to recognize the changes in the fair value of its outstanding derivative instruments that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes in net income. This method of accounting does not affect the Partnership's cash flows or the calculation of distributable cash flow, but results in the recognition of unrealized gains or losses on the consolidated statements of income as detailed in notes 1, 2 and 3 to the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income included in this release.

(1) Adjusted net income attributable to the partners is a non-GAAP financial measure. Please refer to Appendix A to 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 which are typically excluded by securities analysts in their published estimates of the Partnership's financial results.

i.  Net voyage revenues represents voyage revenues less voyage expenses,
    which comprise all expenses relating to certain voyages, including
    bunker fuel expenses, port fees, cargo loading and unloading expenses,
    canal tolls, agency fees and commissions. Net voyage revenues is a non-
    GAAP financial measure used by certain investors to measure the
    financial performance of shipping companies. Please see Appendix C for a
    reconciliation of this non-GAAP measure as used in this release to the
    most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
ii. Cash flow from vessel operations (CFVO) from consolidated vessels
    represents income from vessel operations before (a) depreciation and
    amortization expense, (b) amortization of in-process revenue contracts,
    (c) gains or losses on derivative contracts and includes (d) adjustments
    for direct financing leases and two Suezmax tankers to a cash basis.
    CFVO is included because certain investors use this data to measure a
    company's financial performance. CFVO is not required by GAAP and should
    not be considered as an alternative to net income, equity income or any
    other indicator of the Partnership's performance required by GAAP.
    Please see Appendix E for a reconciliation of CFVO from consolidated
    vessels (a non-GAAP measure) as used in this release to the most
    directly comparable GAAP financial measure.
iii.The Partnership's equity accounted investments for the three months
    ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 include: the Partnership's 40 percent
    interest in Teekay Nakilat (III) Corporation, which owns four LNG
    carriers; the Partnership's 50 percent interest in the Excalibur and
    Excelsior joint ventures with Exmar, which own one LNG carrier and one
    regasification unit, respectively; the Partnership's 33 percent interest
    in four LNG carriers servicing the Angola LNG Project; the Partnership's
    52 percent interest in Malt LNG Netherlands Holdings B.V., the joint
    venture between the Partnership and Marubeni Corporation, which owns six
    LNG carriers (the Malt LNG Carriers); and the Partnership's 50 percent
    interest in Exmar LPG BVBA, which currently owns and charters-in 25
    vessels in the LPG carrier segment, including 10 newbuildings. 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.

Liquefied Gas Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Liquefied Gas segment, excluding equity accounted vessels, increased to $61.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $52.6 million in the same quarter of the prior year. The increase was primarily due to the delivery in late-2013 of two LNG carrier newbuildings acquired from Awilco LNG, and the scheduled dry docking of one LNG carrier which resulted in 21 days of off-hire in the second quarter of 2013.

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's equity accounted vessels in the Liquefied Gas segment increased to $50.9 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $47.2 million in the same quarter of the prior year, primarily due to higher revenues generated by the Exmar LPG Joint Venture fleet as a result of newbuilding deliveries and higher Very Large Gas Carrier (VLGC) spot rates in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the same period in the prior year. This was partially offset by fewer revenue generating days as a result of the sale of two older vessels in the Exmar LPG Joint Venture during the first half of 2014 and scheduled drydockings for two of the Malt LNG carriers and one LPG carrier during the second quarter of 2014.

Conventional Tanker Segment

Cash flow from vessel operations from the Partnership's Conventional Tanker segment decreased to $9.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $12.9 million in the same quarter of the prior year, primarily due to the sale of two Suezmax conventional tankers, the Tenerife Spirit and Algeciras Spirit, in December 2013 and February 2014, respectively.

Liquidity

In mid-July 2014, the Partnership completed an equity offering of 3.1 million common units raising net proceeds of $140.5 million (including the general partner's contribution). The net proceeds from the offering were used to fund the first shipyard installment payments for the six icebreaker LNG carrier newbuildings for the Yamal LNG project, with the remaining proceeds intended to be used to fund a portion of the Partnership's five M-type, Electronically Controlled, Gas Injection (MEGI) LNG carrier newbuildings currently under construction.

As of June 30, 2014, the Partnership had total liquidity of $357.3 million (comprised of $121.7 million in cash and cash equivalents and $235.6 million in undrawn credit facilities). Giving pro-forma effect to the $140.5 million equity issuance completed in mid-July 2014, the Partnership's liquidity at June 30, 2014 would have been $497.8 million.

(3) For accounting purposes, the Partnership is required to revalue all foreign currency-denominated monetary assets and liabilities based on the prevailing exchange rate at the end of each reporting period. This revaluation does not affect the Partnership's cash flows or the calculation of distributable cash flow, but results in the recognition of unrealized foreign currency translation gains or losses in the consolidated statements of income and comprehensive income.

Foreign exchange (loss) gain includes realized (losses) gains relating to the amounts the Partnership (paid) received to settle the Partnership's non-designated cross currency swaps that were entered into as economic hedges in relation to the Partnership's Norwegian Kroner (NOK)-denominated unsecured bonds. The Partnership issued NOK 700 million and NOK 900 million of unsecured bonds in May 2012 and September 2013 that mature in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Foreign exchange (loss) gain also includes unrealized (losses) gains relating to the change in fair value of such derivative instruments, partially offset by unrealized gains (losses) on the revaluation of the NOK bonds as detailed in the table below:

                       (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 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.

(1) Unrealized foreign exchange (gains) 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 losses (gains) on the cross-currency swap economically hedging the Partnership's NOK bond and excludes the realized gains/losses relating to the cross currency swaps for the NOK bonds.

(2) Reflects the unrealized losses (gains) due to changes in the mark-to-market value of derivative instruments that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes.

(3) Reflects the unrealized (gains) losses due to changes in the mark-to-market value of derivative instruments that are not designated as hedges for accounting purposes and any ineffectiveness for any derivative instruments designated as hedges for accounting purposes within the Partnership's equity-accounted investments. Also reflects the Partnership's proportionate share of a net gain of $9.8 million and $8.8 million on the sale of vessels from the Exmar LPG BVBA joint venture during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. See note 1 to the Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income included in this release for further details.

(4) Items affecting net income include items from the Partnership's wholly-owned subsidiaries, its consolidated non-wholly-owned subsidiaries and its proportionate share of items from equity accounted for investments. The specific items affecting net 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 listed above" in the table above is the cumulative amount of the non-controlling interests' proportionate share of items listed in the table.

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

Distributable cash flow represents net income adjusted for depreciation and amortization expense, non-cash items, estimated maintenance capital expenditures, unrealized gains and losses from derivatives, distributions relating to equity financing of newbuilding installments, equity income, adjustments for direct financing leases to a cash basis, and 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 required by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other indicator of the Partnership's performance required by GAAP. The table below reconciles distributable cash flow to net income.

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 (a) depreciation and amortization expense, (b) amortization of in-process revenue contracts included in voyage revenues, (c) gains or losses on derivative contracts and includes (d) adjustments for direct financing leases and two Suezmax tankers to a cash basis. The Partnership's direct financing leases for the periods indicated relates to the Partnership's 69 percent interest in two LNG carriers, Tangguh Sago and Tangguh Hiri, and the two newbuilding LNG carriers acquired from Awilco in September and November 2013. The Partnership's cash flow from vessel operations from consolidated vessels does not include the Partnership's cash flow from vessel operations from its equity accounted joint ventures. Cash flow from vessel operations 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 consolidated vessels. Cash flow from vessel operations from consolidated vessels is not required by GAAP and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or any other indicator of the Partnership's performance required by GAAP.

(1) The Partnership's charter contracts for two of its Suezmax tankers, Bermuda Spirit and Hamilton Spirit, were amended in 2012, which had the effect of reducing the daily charter rates by $12,000 per day for a duration of 24 months commencing October 1, 2012. However, during this period, if Suezmax spot tanker rates exceed the amended rates, the charterer will pay the Partnership the excess amount up to a maximum of the original daily charter rate. The cash impact of the change in hire rates is not fully reflected in the Partnership's statements of income and comprehensive income as the change in the lease payments is being recognized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease.

Cash flow from vessel operations from equity accounted vessels represents income from vessel operations before (a) depreciation and amortization expense, (b) amortization of in-process revenue contracts, and (c) gain on sale of vessel, and includes (d) adjustments for direct financing leases to a cash basis. Cash flow from vessel operations from equity accounted vessels 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 ventures. Cash flow from vessel operations from equity-accounted vessels 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.

                         FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

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: future growth opportunities and expectations and the effect of any growth on the Partnership's results of operations; the expected delivery dates for the Partnership's newbuilding vessels and commencement of related time charter contracts; the Partnership's agreement to provide, through a new 50/50 joint venture with China LNG, six icebreaker LNG carriers for the Yamal LNG project including the timing of delivery and total cost to construct the vessels; the timing of the start-up of the Yamal LNG project and the expected total LNG production capacity of the project, if completed; the impact of the transactions with Yamal LNG and BG on the Partnership's future cash flows; anticipated financing for the four LNG carrier newbuildings for BG; the cost to construct the four LNG carrier newbuildings for BG; the total amount of the Partnership's forward fixed-rate revenues and the average remaining contract length on the Partnership's LNG fleet; and LNG/LPG shipping market fundamentals and projects.

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: potential shipyard construction delays, newbuilding specification changes or cost overruns; availability of suitable LNG shipping, LPG shipping, floating storage and regasification and other growth project opportunities; changes in production of LNG or LPG, either generally or in particular regions; changes in trading patterns or timing of start-up of new LNG liquefaction and regasification projects significantly affecting overall vessel tonnage requirements; competitive dynamics in bidding for potential LNG, LPG or floating regasification projects; potential failure of the Yamal LNG Project to be completed for any reason, including due to lack of funding as a result of existing or future sanctions against Russia and Russian entities and individuals, which may affect partners in the project; potential delays or cancellation of the Yamal LNG project; changes in applicable industry laws and regulations and the timing of implementation of new laws and regulations; the potential for early termination of long-term contracts of existing vessels in the Teekay LNG fleet; the inability of charterers to make future charter payments; the inability of the Partnership to renew or replace long-term contracts on existing vessels; the Partnership's ability to raise financing for its existing newbuildings or to purchase additional vessels or to pursue other projects; and other factors discussed in Teekay LNG Partners' 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 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.
