FRO: Sale of Suezmax Tanker






Frontline Ltd. (the "Company") has entered into an agreement to sell its 1992-
built double hull Suezmax tanker Front Beta. Delivery to the buyer is expected
to take place in late December 2011 and the vessel will cease to operate in the
tanker market. The sale will result in a net cash outflow of approximately $0.2
million, after repayment of bank debt, and the Company expects to record a loss
of approximately $0.1 million.

Forward Looking Statements

This press release contains forward looking statements. These statements are
based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further
assumptions, including Frontline management's examination of historical
operating trends. Although Frontline believes that these assumptions were
reasonable when made, because assumptions are inherently subject to significant
uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and
are beyond its control, Frontline cannot give assurance that it will achieve or
accomplish these expectations, beliefs or intentions.

Important factors that, in the Company's view, could cause actual results to
differ materially from those discussed in this press release include the
strength of world economies and currencies, general market conditions including
fluctuations in charter hire rates and vessel values, changes in demand in the
tanker market as a result of changes in OPEC's petroleum production levels and
world wide oil consumption and storage, changes in the Company's operating
expenses including bunker prices, dry-docking and insurance costs, changes in
governmental rules and regulations or actions taken by regulatory authorities,
potential liability from pending or future litigation, general domestic and
international political conditions, potential disruption of shipping routes due
to accidents or political events, and other important factors described from
time to time in the reports filed by the Company with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission.
