IMPORTANT NOTICE ABOUT INFORMATION IN THIS PROSPECTUS SUPPLEMENT
This prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus are part of a registration statement that we filed with the Commission utilizing a “shelf” registration process. This document is in two parts. The first part is this prospectus supplement, which describes the specific terms of this offering of common shares and also adds to and updates information contained in the accompanying base prospectus and the documents incorporated by reference into this prospectus supplement and the base prospectus. The second part, the base prospectus, gives more general information about securities we may offer from time to time, some of which does not apply to this offering. Generally, when we refer only to the prospectus, we are referring to both parts combined, and when we refer to the accompanying prospectus, we are referring to the base prospectus.
If the description of this offering varies between this prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus, you should rely on the information in this prospectus supplement. This prospectus supplement, the accompanying base prospectus and the documents incorporated into each by reference include important information about us, the common shares being offered and other information you should know before investing. You should read this prospectus supplement and the accompanying base prospectus together with additional information described under the heading, “Information Incorporated by Reference” before investing in our common shares.
We prepare our financial statements, including all of the financial statements incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement, in U.S. dollars and in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards, or IFRS, as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. We have a fiscal year end of December 31.
You should rely only on the information contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus. Neither we nor the Selling Shareholders have authorized any other person to provide you with different information. If anyone provides you with different or inconsistent information, you should not rely on it. Neither we nor the Selling Shareholders take any responsibility for, or provide any assurance as to, the reliability of any information that others may give you. Neither we nor the Selling Shareholders are making an offer to sell the common shares offered hereby in any jurisdiction where the offer or sale is not permitted. The information appearing in this prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus as well as the information we previously filed with the Commission and incorporated by reference herein and therein, is accurate as of the dates on the front cover of those documents only. Our business, financial condition and results of operations and prospects may have changed since those dates.
S-ii


CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward-looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts.
This prospectus includes assumptions, expectations, projections, intentions and beliefs about future events. These statements are intended as "forward-looking statements." We desire to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are including this cautionary statement in connection therewith. This prospectus and any other written or oral statements made by us or on our behalf may include forward-looking statements, which reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance, and are not intended to give any assurance as to future results or events. We caution that assumptions, expectations, projections, intentions and beliefs about future events may and often do vary from actual results and the differences can be material. When used in this prospectus, the words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," "seek," "plan," "potential," "continue," "contemplate," "possible,"  "target," "project," "likely," "may," "might," "would," "could" and similar expressions, terms, or phrases may identify forward-looking statements.
The forward-looking statements are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections.
In addition to important factors and matters discussed elsewhere in this prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference herein, important factors that, in our view, could cause our actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include:

our future operating or financial results;

the strength of world economies and currencies;

fluctuations in interest rates and foreign exchange rates;

general market conditions, including the market for our vessels, fluctuations in spot and charter rates and vessel values;

availability of financing and refinancing;

our business strategy and other plans and objectives for growth and future operations;

our ability to successfully employ our vessels;

planned capital expenditures and availability of capital resources to fund capital expenditures;

planned, pending or recent acquisitions, business strategy and expected capital spending or operating expenses, including drydocking, surveys, upgrades and insurance costs;

our ability to realize the expected benefits from acquisitions;

potential liability from pending or future litigation;

general domestic and international political conditions;
S-iii



potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events;

vessel breakdowns and instances of off-hire;

competition within our industry;

the supply of and demand for vessels comparable to ours;

corruption, piracy, militant activities, political instability, terrorism, and ethnic unrest in locations where we may operate;

delays and cost overruns in construction projects;

our level of indebtedness;

our ability to obtain financing and to comply with the restrictive and other covenants in our financing arrangements;

our need for cash to meet our debt service obligations;

our levels of operating and maintenance costs, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs;

our ability to successfully identify, consummate, integrate, and realize the expected benefits from acquisitions, including our acquisition of the leasehold interests in 19 vessels from Trafigura Maritime Logistics Pte. Ltd., or Trafigura, by way of acquisition of the companies that hold the vessels;

reputational risks;

availability of skilled workers and the related labor costs and related costs;

the MARPOL convention, Annex VI Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships which will reduce the maximum amount of sulfur that ships can emit into the air, which will be applicable as of January 1, 2020 and our ability to successfully complete the installation of exhaust gas cleaning systems, or scrubbers, on all of our vessels;

compliance with governmental, tax, environmental and safety regulation;

any non-compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 or other applicable regulations relating to bribery;

general economic conditions and conditions in the oil and natural gas industry;

effects of new products and new technology in our industry;

the failure of counterparties to fully perform their contracts with us;

our dependence on key personnel;

adequacy of insurance coverage;

our ability to obtain indemnities from customers;
S-iv



changes in laws, treaties or regulations applicable to us;

the volatility of the price of our common shares and our other securities;

other factors that may affect our future results; and

these factors and other risk factors described in this prospectus supplement and other reports that we furnish or file with the Commission.
These factors and the other risk factors described in this prospectus are not necessarily all of the important factors that could cause actual results or developments to differ materially from those expressed in any of our forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could harm our results. Consequently, there can be no assurance that actual results or developments anticipated by us will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, us. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of our future performance, and actual results and future developments may vary materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Given these uncertainties, prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates. We undertake no obligation, and specifically decline any obligation, except as required by law, to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. For a discussion of these risks and uncertainties, please see the section of this prospectus entitled "Risk Factors."

As of September 27, 2019, our fleet consisted of 124 wholly-owned or financed leased product tankers (42 LR2, 12 LR1, 56 MR and 14 Handymax) with an average age of approximately 3.7 years, and 10 bareboat chartered-in product tankers (seven Handymax and three MR). In addition, the Company will bareboat charter-in four MR tankers that are currently under construction and that are scheduled to be delivered in 2020 (two in January, one in March and one in September).
Recent Developments and Other Information
Acquisition of Leasehold Interests in 19 Vessels from Trafigura
On September 24, 2019, we entered into a share purchase agreement, or the Purchase Agreement, with Trafigura and Urion Holdings (Malta) Limited, or Urion, as Trafigura’s nominee, pursuant to which, at the closing on September 26, 2019, we purchased all of the issued and outstanding shares of the three subsidiaries of Trafigura, or the Trafigura Subsidiaries, that collectively hold the leasehold interests in 19 product tankers, consisting of four LR2 product tankers and 15 MR product tankers, for an aggregate value of $803 million.  Of the 19 vessels, 15 are currently on the water and four are expected to be delivered in 2020.  The acquisition of the leasehold interests includes a finance lease arrangement with a financial institution under a bareboat contract arrangement.  After the assumption of the present value of the finance lease arrangement of approximately $670 million, we issued an aggregate of 4,572,873 shares of our common stock, or the Consideration Shares, at a price of $29.00 per share as full consideration for the acquisition of the Trafigura Subsidiaries to Urion. In connection with the acquisition of the Trafigura Subsidiaries, we also entered into a registration rights agreement with Trafigura and Urion, or the Registration Rights Agreement, pursuant to which we agreed to register the Consideration Shares for resale on the registration statement of which this prospectus supplement constitutes a part. Urion has agreed not to dispose of the Consideration Shares prior to January 1, 2020.


S-1


$50 Million Private Placement
Concurrently with the acquisition of the Trafigura Subsidiaries, on September 24, 2019, we entered into a separate securities purchase agreement, or the Securities Purchase Agreement, with Urion and Scorpio Services Holding Limited, or SSH, a related party of the Company, pursuant to which Urion and SSH agreed to purchase $35 million and $15 million, respectively, for an aggregate of $50 million or 1,724,137 of our common shares at a price of $29.00 per share, or the Private Placement.  The Private Placement closed on September 26, 2019.  Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement we agreed to register the shares issued in connection with the Private Placement pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus supplement constitutes a part.
Declaration of Dividend
On July 30, 2019, our Board of Directors, or the Board, declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.10 per common share, payable on or about September 27, 2019 to all shareholders of record as of September 10, 2019 (the record date).
2013 Equity Incentive Plan
On July 30, 2019, the Board approved the reloading of our 2013 Equity Incentive Plan, or the Plan, and reserved an additional 134,893 common shares for issuance pursuant to the Plan.
In July 2019, we issued 230,170 shares of restricted stock to our employees for no cash consideration pursuant to the Plan.  The share price on the issuance date was $26.23 per share.  The vesting schedule of the restricted stock is (i) one-third of the shares vest on May 24, 2022, (ii) one-third of the shares vest on May 23, 2023, and (iii) one-third of the shares vest on May 22, 2024.
Scrubber Financing
We have received commitments for seven different facilities to partially finance the purchase and installation of scrubbers on certain of our vessels.  These commitments are expected to increase our liquidity by approximately $87 million.  The Company is  in discussions with other financial institutions to finance additional purchases of scrubbers which, if consummated, are expected to increase our liquidity by an additional $35 million. All of these agreements, if consummated, are expected to be signed in the next few months and the drawdowns will occur as the scrubbers are installed throughout the remainder of 2019 and 2020.
Convertible Senior Notes due 2019
In July 2019, our Convertible Senior Notes due 2019 matured and we repaid the entire outstanding balance of $142.7 million.
Convertible Senior Notes due 2022
On September 10, 2019, the conversion rate of our Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 was adjusted to reflect our expected payment of a cash dividend on or about September 27, 2019 to all shareholders of record as of September 10, 2019. The new conversion rate for the Convertible Senior Notes due 2022 is 25.6637 common shares per $1,000 principal amount, representing an increase to the prior conversion rate of 0.0870 common shares for each $1,000 principal amount of the Convertible Senior Notes due 2022.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
We are registering the common shares issued to the Selling Shareholders pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and the Securities Purchase Agreement, as applicable, to permit the resale of these common shares by the Selling Shareholders from time to time after the date of this prospectus supplement (subject to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement and the Securities Purchase Agreement, as applicable). The term “Selling Shareholders” as used in this section includes the Selling Shareholders and their donees, pledgees, transferees, assignees, designees, distributees or other successors in interest, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement and the Securities Purchase Agreement, as applicable. All of the transactions contemplated herein shall at all times be subject to and comply with the terms and conditions of the Purchase Agreement and the Securities Purchase Agreement, as applicable. We refer you to the section entitled “Use of Proceeds” in this prospectus supplement.

We will not receive any of the proceeds from the sale by the Selling Shareholders of the common shares. We will bear all fees and expenses incident to our obligation to register the common shares.
The Selling Shareholders may sell all or a portion of the common shares beneficially owned by them and offered hereby from time to time directly or through one or more underwriters, broker-dealers or agents. If the common shares are sold through underwriters or broker-dealers, the Selling Shareholders will be responsible for underwriting discounts or commissions or agent's commissions. The common shares may be sold on any national securities exchange or quotation service on which the securities may be listed or quoted at the time of sale, in the over-the-counter market or in transactions otherwise than on these exchanges or systems or in the over-the-counter market and in one or more transactions at fixed prices, at prevailing market prices at the time of the sale, at varying prices determined at the time of sale, or at negotiated prices. These sales may be effected in transactions, which may involve crosses or block transactions. The Selling Shareholders may use any one or more of the following methods when selling shares:

a distribution by way of a dividend or otherwise to existing shareholders of such Selling Shareholders;

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;

block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the shares as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;

purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;

underwriters, brokers or dealers (who may act as agents or principals) or directly to one or more purchasers;

an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;

public or privately negotiated transactions;

settlement of short sales entered into after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus supplement is a part;

broker-dealers may agree with the Selling Shareholders to sell a specified number of such common shares at a stipulated price per share; 
S-10



trading plans entered into by the Selling Shareholders pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act that are in place at the time of an offering pursuant to this prospectus supplement that provide for periodic sales of their securities on the basis of parameters described in such trading plans;

any combination of the foregoing; or

any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.
The Selling Shareholders may also resell all or a portion of the common shares in open market transactions in reliance upon Rule 144 of the Securities Act, as permitted by that rule, or Section 4(1) of the Securities Act, if available, rather than under this prospectus supplement, provided that they meet the criteria and conform to the requirements of those provisions.
Broker-dealers engaged by the Selling Shareholders may arrange for other broker-dealers to participate in sales. If the Selling Shareholders effect such transactions by selling common shares to or through underwriters, broker-dealers or agents, such underwriters, broker-dealers or agents may receive commissions in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the Selling Shareholders or commissions from purchasers of the common shares for whom they may act as agent or to whom they may sell as principal. Such commissions will be in amounts to be negotiated, but, except as set forth in this prospectus supplement, in the case of an agency transaction will not be in excess of a customary brokerage commission in compliance with Rule 2440 of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, or FINRA; and in the case of a principal transaction a markup or markdown in compliance with FINRA IM-2440.
In connection with sales of the common shares, the Selling Shareholders may enter into hedging transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions, which may in turn engage in short sales of the common shares in the course of hedging in positions they assume. The Selling Shareholders may also sell common shares short and may deliver common shares covered by this prospectus supplement to close out short positions and to return borrowed shares in connection with such short sales. The Selling Shareholders may also loan or pledge common shares to broker-dealers that in turn may sell such shares, to the extent permitted by applicable law. The Selling Shareholders may also enter into option or other transactions with broker-dealers or other financial institutions or the creation of one or more derivative securities which require the delivery to such broker-dealer or other financial institution of common shares offered by this prospectus supplement, which shares such broker-dealer or other financial institution may resell pursuant to this prospectus supplement (as supplemented or amended to reflect such transaction).
The Selling Shareholders may, from time to time, pledge or grant a security interest in some or all of the common shares owned by them and, if they default in the performance of their secured obligations, the pledgees or secured parties may offer and sell the common shares from time to time pursuant to this prospectus supplement or any amendment to this prospectus supplement under Rule 424(b)(3) or other applicable provision of the Securities Act, amending, if necessary, the list of selling shareholders to include the donee, pledgee, transferee, assignee, designee, distributee or other successors in interest as selling shareholders under this prospectus supplement. The Selling Shareholders may also transfer and donate the common shares in other circumstances in which case the donee, pledgee, transferee, assignee, designee, distributee or other successors in interest will be the selling beneficial owners for purposes of this prospectus supplement.
The Selling Shareholders and any broker-dealer or agent participating in the distribution of the common shares may be deemed to be "underwriters" within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act in connection with such sales. In such event, any commissions paid, or any discounts or concessions allowed to, any such broker-dealer or agent and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act. Selling shareholders who are "underwriters" within the meaning of Section 2(11) of the Securities Act will be subject to the applicable prospectus delivery requirements of the Securities Act including Rule 172 thereunder and may be subject to certain statutory liabilities of, including but not limited to, Sections 11, 12 and 17 of the Securities Act and Rule 10b-5 of the Exchange Act.
S-11


The Selling Shareholders have informed the Company that they are not a registered broker-dealer and do not have any written or oral agreement or understanding, directly or indirectly, with any person to distribute the common shares.
Under the securities laws of some states, the common shares may be sold in such states only through registered or licensed brokers or dealers. In addition, in some states the common shares may not be sold unless such shares have been registered or qualified for sale in such state or an exemption from registration or qualification is available and is complied with.
There can be no assurance that the Selling Shareholders will sell any or all of the common shares included in this prospectus supplement. The Selling Shareholders and any other person participating in such distribution will be subject to applicable provisions of the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder, including, without limitation, to the extent applicable, Regulation M of the Exchange Act, which may limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the common shares by the Selling Shareholders and any other participating person. To the extent applicable, Regulation M may also restrict the ability of any person engaged in the distribution of the common shares to engage in market-making activities with respect to the common shares. All of the foregoing may affect the marketability of the common shares and the ability of any person or entity to engage in market-making activities with respect to the common shares.
We will pay all expenses of the registration of the common shares offered by this prospectus supplement, pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, including, without limitation, Commission filing fees and expenses of compliance with state securities or "blue sky" laws; providedhowever, that the Selling Shareholders will pay all underwriting discounts and selling commissions, if any, and any related legal expenses incurred by them. We will indemnify the Selling Shareholders against certain liabilities, including some liabilities under the Securities Act, in accordance with the Registration Rights Agreement, or the Selling Shareholders will be entitled to contribution. We may be indemnified by the Selling Shareholders against civil liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act, that may arise from any written information furnished to us by the Selling Shareholders specifically for use in this prospectus supplement, in accordance with the related Registration Rights Agreement, or we may be entitled to contribution.

ABOUT THIS PROSPECTUS
This prospectus is part of a registration statement that we filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, or the Commission, using a shelf registration process. Under the shelf registration process, we or any selling shareholder may sell, from time to time, our common shares, preferred shares, debt securities, warrants, purchase contracts, rights, and units described in this prospectus, in one or more offerings. No limit exists on the aggregate amount of the securities we or any selling shareholder may sell pursuant to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part. This prospectus provides you with a general description of the securities we or any selling shareholder may offer. Each time we or a selling shareholder offer securities, we will provide you with a prospectus supplement that will describe, among other things, the specific amounts, prices and terms of the offered securities. We may file a prospectus supplement in the future that may also add, update or change the information contained in this prospectus. You should read carefully this prospectus, any prospectus supplement, and the additional information described below under the heading "Where You Can Find Additional Information."
This prospectus and any prospectus supplement are part of a registration statement that we filed with the Commission and do not contain all the information in the registration statement. Forms of the indentures and other documents establishing the terms of the offered securities are filed as exhibits to the registration statement.  Statements in this prospectus or any prospectus supplement about these documents are summaries and each statement is qualified in all respects by reference to the document to which it refers. You should refer to the actual documents for a more complete description of the relevant matters. For further information about us or the securities offered hereby, you should refer to the registration statement, which you can obtain from the Commission as described below under the section entitled "Where You Can Find Additional Information."
Unless the context otherwise requires, when used in this prospectus, the terms "Scorpio Tankers," the "Company," "we," "our" and "us" refer to Scorpio Tankers Inc. and its subsidiaries. "Scorpio Tankers Inc." refers only to Scorpio Tankers Inc. and not its subsidiaries.

PROSPECTUS SUMMARY
This section summarizes some of the key information that is contained or incorporated by reference in this prospectus. It may not contain all of the information that may be important to you. As an investor or prospective investor, you should review carefully the entire prospectus and the information incorporated by reference herein, including the section entitled "Risk Factors."
Our Company
Scorpio Tankers Inc. was incorporated in the Republic of the Marshall Islands pursuant to the Marshall Islands Business Corporations Act on July 1, 2009. We provide seaborne transportation of refined petroleum products worldwide. We began our operations in October 2009 with three vessel owning and operating subsidiary companies. In April 2010, we completed our initial public offering of common stock and commenced trading on the NYSE under the symbol "STNG." We have since expanded our fleet and as of the date of this prospectus, our fleet consists of 109 wholly owned or finance leased product tankers (consisting of 38 LR2, 12 LR1, 14 Handymax and 45 MR) with an average age of approximately 3.6 years, and 10 bareboat chartered-in product tankers that we operate (consisting of seven Handymax and three MR), which we refer to collectively as our Operating Fleet.
Corporate Structure
We were incorporated in the Republic of the Marshall Islands pursuant to the Marshall Islands Business Corporation Act on July 1, 2009.  We currently maintain our principal executive offices at 9, Boulevard Charles III, Monaco 98000 and our telephone number at that location is +377-9798-5716. We also maintain an office in the United States at 150 East 58th Street, New York, New York 10155 and the telephone number at that location is 212-542-1616. We own or finance lease each of the vessels in our owned and financed leased fleet, and expect to own or finance lease each additional vessel that we acquire into our owned and finance leased fleet in the future, if any, through separate wholly-owned subsidiaries incorporated in the Republic of the Marshall Islands. The seven Handymax vessels in our bareboat chartered-in fleet are chartered-in to our wholly-owned subsidiary incorporated in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, STI Chartering and Trading Ltd.  The three MR vessels in our bareboat chartered-in fleet are chartered in through separate wholly-owned subsidiaries incorporated in the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENT REGARDING FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
The Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 provides safe harbor protections for forward-looking statements in order to encourage companies to provide prospective information about their business. Forward-looking statements include statements concerning plans, objectives, goals, strategies, future events or performance, and underlying assumptions and other statements, which are other than statements of historical facts.
This prospectus includes assumptions, expectations, projections, intentions and beliefs about future events. These statements are intended as "forward-looking statements." We desire to take advantage of the safe harbor provisions of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 and are including this cautionary statement in connection therewith. This prospectus and any other written or oral statements made by us or on our behalf may include forward-looking statements, which reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance, and are not intended to give any assurance as to future results or events. We caution that assumptions, expectations, projections, intentions and beliefs about future events may and often do vary from actual results and the differences can be material. When used in this prospectus, the words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "intend," "seek," "plan," "potential," "continue," "contemplate," "possible,"  "target," "project," "likely," "may," "might," "would," "could" and similar expressions, terms, or phrases may identify forward-looking statements.
The forward-looking statements in this prospectus are based upon various assumptions, many of which are based, in turn, upon further assumptions, including without limitation, management's examination of historical operating trends, data contained in our records and other data available from third parties. Although we believe that these assumptions were reasonable when made, because these assumptions are inherently subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies which are difficult or impossible to predict and are beyond our control, we cannot assure you that we will achieve or accomplish these expectations, beliefs or projections.
In addition to important factors and matters discussed elsewhere in this prospectus and in the documents incorporated by reference herein, important factors that, in our view, could cause our actual results to differ materially from those discussed in the forward-looking statements include:

our future operating or financial results;

the strength of world economies and currencies;

fluctuations in interest rates and foreign exchange rates;

general market conditions, including the market for our vessels, fluctuations in spot and charter rates and vessel values;

availability of financing and refinancing;

our business strategy and other plans and objectives for growth and future operations;

our ability to successfully employ our vessels;

planned capital expenditures and availability of capital resources to fund capital expenditures;

planned, pending or recent acquisitions, business strategy and expected capital spending or operating expenses, including drydocking, surveys, upgrades and insurance costs;

our ability to realize the expected benefits from acquisitions;

potential liability from pending or future litigation;

general domestic and international political conditions;

potential disruption of shipping routes due to accidents or political events;

vessel breakdowns and instances of off-hire;
3



competition within our industry;

the supply of and demand for vessels comparable to ours;

corruption, piracy, militant activities, political instability, terrorism, and ethnic unrest in locations where we may operate;

delays and cost overruns in construction projects;

our level of indebtedness;

our ability to obtain financing and to comply with the restrictive and other covenants in our financing arrangements;

our need for cash to meet our debt service obligations;

our levels of operating and maintenance costs, including bunker prices, drydocking and insurance costs;

our ability to successfully identify, consummate, integrate, and realize the expected benefits from acquisitions, including our acquisition of Navig8 Product Tankers Inc, or NPTI;

reputational risks;

availability of skilled workers and the related labor costs and related costs;

the MARPOL convention, Annex VI Prevention of Air Pollution from Ships which will reduce the maximum amount of sulfur that ships can emit into the air, which will be applicable as of January 1, 2020;

the International Convention for the Control and Management of Ships' Ballast Water and Sediments (BWM), which will be applicable as of September 2019;

compliance with governmental, tax, environmental and safety regulation;

any non-compliance with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977 (FCPA) or other applicable regulations relating to bribery;

general economic conditions and conditions in the oil and natural gas industry;

effects of new products and new technology in our industry;

the failure of counterparties to fully perform their contracts with us;

our dependence on key personnel;

adequacy of insurance coverage;

our ability to obtain indemnities from customers;

changes in laws, treaties or regulations applicable to us;

the volatility of the price of our common shares and our other securities and other factors that may affect our future results; and

these factors and other risk factors described in this prospectus and other reports that we furnish or file with the Commission.
These factors and the other risk factors described in this prospectus are not necessarily all of the important factors that could cause actual results or developments to differ materially from those expressed in any of our forward-looking statements. Other unknown or unpredictable factors also could harm our results. Consequently, there can be no assurance that actual results or developments anticipated by us will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequences to, or effects on, us. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees of our future performance, and actual results and future developments may vary materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements. Given these uncertainties, prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of their dates. We undertake no obligation, and specifically decline any obligation, except as required by law, to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. For a discussion of these risks and uncertainties, please see the section of this prospectus entitled "Risk Factors."

USE OF PROCEEDS
We intend to use the net proceeds from the sale of securities as set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement.  We will not receive any proceeds from sales of our securities by any of the selling shareholders.
5


CAPITALIZATION
Each prospectus supplement will include information about our capitalization.
6


PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
We or any selling shareholder may sell or distribute our securities included in this prospectus through underwriters, through agents, to dealers, in private transactions, at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to the prevailing market prices, or at negotiated prices.
In addition, we or the selling shareholders may sell some or all of our securities included in this prospectus through:

a block trade in which a broker-dealer may resell a portion of the block, as principal, in order to facilitate the transaction;

purchases by a broker-dealer, as principal, and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;

ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which a broker solicits purchasers; or

trading plans entered into by us pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, that are in place at the time of an offering pursuant to this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement hereto that provide for periodic sales of their securities on the basis of parameters described in such trading plans.
In addition, we or the selling shareholders may enter into options or other types of transactions that require us or them to deliver our securities to a broker-dealer, who will then resell or transfer the securities under this prospectus. We or any selling shareholder may enter into hedging transactions with respect to our securities. For example, we or any selling shareholder may:

enter into transactions involving short sales of our common shares by broker-dealers;

sell common shares short and deliver the shares to close out short positions;

enter into options or other types of transactions that require us or them to deliver common shares to a broker-dealer, who will then resell or transfer the common shares under this prospectus; or

loan or pledge the common shares to a broker-dealer, who may sell the loaned shares or, in the event of default, sell the pledged shares.
We or any selling shareholder may enter into derivative transactions with third parties, or sell securities not covered by this prospectus to third parties in privately negotiated transactions. If the applicable prospectus supplement indicates, in connection with those derivatives, the third parties may sell securities covered by this prospectus and the applicable prospectus supplement, including in short sale transactions. If so, the third party may use securities pledged by us, any selling shareholder or borrowed from us or any selling shareholder or others to settle those sales or to close out any related open borrowings of stock, and may use securities received from us or any selling shareholder in settlement of those derivatives to close out any related open borrowings of stock. The third party in such sale transactions will be an underwriter and, if not identified in this prospectus, will be identified in the applicable prospectus supplement (or a post-effective amendment). In addition, we or any selling shareholder may otherwise loan or pledge securities to a financial institution or other third party that in turn may sell the securities short using this prospectus. Such financial institution or other third party may transfer its economic short position to investors in our securities or in connection with a concurrent offering of other securities.
The selling shareholders and any broker-dealers or other persons acting on our behalf or on the behalf of the selling shareholders that participate with us or the selling shareholders in the distribution of the securities may be deemed to be underwriters and any commissions received or profit realized by them on the resale of the securities may be deemed to be underwriting discounts and commissions under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Act. As a result, we have or will inform the selling shareholders that Regulation M, promulgated under the Exchange Act, may apply to sales by the selling shareholders in the market.  The selling shareholders may agree to indemnify any broker, dealer or agent that participates in transactions involving the sale of our common shares against certain liabilities, including liabilities arising under the Securities Act.
As of the date of this prospectus, we are not a party to any agreement, arrangement or understanding between any broker or dealer and us with respect to the offer or sale of the securities pursuant to this prospectus.
7


At the time that any particular offering of securities is made, to the extent required by the Securities Act, a prospectus supplement will be distributed, setting forth the terms of the offering, including the aggregate number of securities being offered, the purchase price of the securities, the initial offering price of the securities, the names of any underwriters, dealers or agents, any discounts, commissions and other items constituting compensation from us and any discounts, commissions or concessions allowed or re-allowed or paid to dealers. Furthermore, we, our executive officers, our directors and the selling shareholders may agree, subject to certain exemptions, that for a certain period from the date of the prospectus supplement under which the securities are offered, we and they will not, without the prior written consent of an underwriter, offer, sell, contract to sell, pledge or otherwise dispose of any of our common shares or any securities convertible into or exchangeable for our common shares. However, an underwriter, in its sole discretion, may release any of the securities subject to these lock-up agreements at any time without notice. We expect an underwriter to exclude from these lock-up agreements securities exercised and/or sold pursuant to trading plans entered into by any selling shareholder pursuant to Rule 10b5-1 under the Exchange Act, that are in place at the time of an offering pursuant to this prospectus and any applicable prospectus supplement hereto that provide for periodic sales of the selling shareholders' securities on the basis of parameters described in such trading plans.
Underwriters or agents could make sales in privately negotiated transactions and/or any other method permitted by law, including sales deemed to be an at-the-market offering as defined in Rule 415 promulgated under the Securities Act, which includes sales made directly on or through the NYSE, the existing trading market for our common shares, or sales made to or through a market maker other than on an exchange.
We will bear the costs relating to the securities offered and sold by us under this Registration Statement.

DESCRIPTION OF DEBT SECURITIES
We may offer and issue debt securities from time to time in one or more series, under one or more indentures, each dated as of a date on or prior to the issuance of the debt securities to which it relates, and pursuant to an applicable prospectus supplement.  We may issue senior debt securities and subordinated debt securities pursuant to separate indentures, a senior indenture and a subordinated indenture, respectively, in each case between us and the trustee named in the indenture.  We have filed forms of these documents as exhibits to the registration statement, of which this prospectus forms a part.  The senior indenture and the subordinated indenture, as amended or supplemented from time to time, are sometimes referred to individually as an "indenture" and collectively as the "indentures." Each indenture will be subject to and governed by the Trust Indenture Act of 1939, as amended, or the Trust Indenture Act, and will be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles thereof relating to conflicts of law that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction, unless otherwise stated in the applicable prospectus supplement and indenture (or post-effective amendment hereto).  The aggregate principal amount of debt securities which may be issued under each indenture will contain the specific terms of any series of debt securities or provide that those terms must be set forth in or determined pursuant to, an authorizing resolution, as defined in the applicable prospectus supplement, and/or a supplemental indenture, if any, relating to such series.  Our debt securities may be convertible or exchangeable into any of our equity or other debt securities.
The following description sets forth certain general terms and provisions of the debt securities. The particular terms and provisions of the debt securities offered by any prospectus supplement, and the extent to which the general terms and provisions described below may apply to the offered debt securities, will be described in the applicable subsequent filings.  We refer to any applicable prospectus supplement, amendment to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part, and reports we file with the Commission under the Exchange Act as "subsequent filings."  The statements below are not complete and are subject to, and are qualified in their entirety by reference to, all of the provisions of the applicable indenture. The specific terms of any debt securities that we may offer, including any modifications of, or additions to, the general terms described below as well as any applicable material U.S. federal income tax considerations concerning the ownership of such debt securities will be described in the applicable prospectus supplement and indenture and, as applicable, supplemental indenture. Accordingly, for a complete description of the terms of a particular issue of debt securities, the general description of the debt securities set forth below should be read in conjunction with the applicable prospectus supplement and indenture, as amended or supplemented from time to time.
General
We expect that neither indenture will limit the amount of debt securities which may be issued.  The debt securities may be issued in one or more series.
You should read the applicable indenture and subsequent filings relating to the particular series of debt securities for the following terms of the offered debt securities:

the designation, aggregate principal amount and authorized denominations;

the issue price, expressed as a percentage of the aggregate principal amount;

the maturity date;

the interest rate per annum, if any;

if the debt securities provide for interest payments, the date from which interest will accrue, the dates on which interest will be payable, the date on which payment of interest will commence and the regular record dates for interest payment dates;

any optional or mandatory sinking fund provisions or exchangeability provisions;

the terms and conditions upon which conversion of any convertible debt securities may be effected, including the conversion price, the conversion period and other conversion provisions;

whether the debt securities will be our senior or subordinated securities;
10



whether the debt securities will be our secured or unsecured obligations;

the applicability and terms of any guarantees;

the date, if any, after which and the price or prices at which the debt securities may be optionally redeemed or must be mandatorily redeemed and any other terms and provisions of optional or mandatory redemptions;

if other than denominations of $1,000 and any integral multiple thereof, the denominations in which the debt securities of the series will be issuable;

if other than the full principal amount, the portion of the principal amount of the debt securities of the series which will be payable upon acceleration or provable in bankruptcy;

any events of default not set forth in this prospectus;

the currency or currencies, including composite currencies, in which principal, premium and interest will be payable, if other than the currency of the United States;

if principal, premium or interest is payable, at our election or at the election of any holder, in a currency other than that in which the debt securities of the series are stated to be payable, the period or periods within which, and the terms and conditions upon which, the election may be made;

whether interest will be payable in cash or additional securities at our or the holder's option and the terms and conditions upon which the election may be made;

if denominated in a currency or currencies other than the currency of the United States, the equivalent price in the currency of the United States for purposes of determining the voting rights of holders of those debt securities under the applicable indenture;

if the amount of payments of principal, premium or interest may be determined with reference to an index, formula or other method based on a coin or currency other than that in which the debt securities of the series are stated to be payable, the manner in which the amounts will be determined;

any restrictive covenants or other material terms relating to the debt securities;

whether the debt securities will be issued in the form of global securities or certificates in registered form;

any listing on any securities exchange or quotation system;

additional provisions, if any, related to defeasance and discharge of the debt securities; and

any other special features of the debt securities.
Subsequent filings may include additional terms not listed above.  Unless otherwise indicated in subsequent filings with the Commission relating to the indenture, principal, premium and interest will be payable and the debt securities will be transferable at the corporate trust office of the applicable trustee.  Unless other arrangements are made or set forth in subsequent filings or a supplemental indenture, principal, premium and interest will be paid by checks mailed to the registered holders at their registered addresses.
Unless otherwise indicated in subsequent filings with the Commission, the debt securities will be issued only in fully registered form without coupons, in denominations of $1,000 or any integral multiple thereof.  No service charge will be made for any transfer or exchange of the debt securities, but we may require payment of a sum sufficient to cover any tax or other governmental charge payable in connection with these debt securities.
Some or all of the debt securities may be issued as discounted debt securities, bearing no interest or interest at a rate which at the time of issuance is below market rates, to be sold at a substantial discount below the stated principal amount.  United States federal income tax consequences and other special considerations applicable to any discounted securities will be described in subsequent filings with the Commission relating to those securities.
11


Senior Debt
We may issue senior debt securities, which may be secured or unsecured, under the senior debt indenture. The senior debt securities will rank on an equal basis with all our other senior debt except subordinated debt.  The senior debt securities will be effectively subordinated, however, to all of our secured debt to the extent of the value of the collateral securing such debt. We will disclose the amount of our debt in the prospectus supplement.
Subordinated Debt
We may issue subordinated debt securities under a subordinated debt indenture.  Subordinated debt would rank subordinate and junior in right of payment, to the extent set forth in the subordinated debt indenture, to all our senior debt.
Covenants
Any series of debt securities may have covenants in addition to or differing from those included in the applicable indenture which will be described in subsequent filings prepared in connection with the offering of such securities, limiting or restricting, among other things:

our ability to incur either secured or unsecured debt, or both;

our ability to make certain payments, dividends, redemptions or repurchases;

our ability to create dividend and other payment restrictions affecting our subsidiaries;

our ability to make investments;

mergers and consolidations by us or our subsidiaries;

sales of assets by us;

our ability to enter into transactions with affiliates;

our ability to incur liens; or

sale and leaseback transactions.
Modification of the Indentures
We expect that each indenture and the rights of the respective holders may be modified by us only with the consent of holders of not less than a majority in aggregate principal amount of the outstanding debt securities of all series under the respective indenture affected by the modification, taken together as a class.  But we expect that no modification that:

(1)
changes the amount of securities whose holders must consent to an amendment, supplement or waiver;

(2)
reduces the rate of or changes the interest payment time on any security or alters its redemption provisions (other than any alteration to any such section which would not materially adversely affect the legal rights of any holder under the indenture) or the price at which we are required to offer to purchase the securities;

(3)
reduces the principal or changes the maturity of any security or reduces the amount of, or postpones the date fixed for, the payment of any sinking fund or analogous obligation;

(4)
waives a default or event of default in the payment of the principal of or interest, if any, on any security (except a rescission of acceleration of the securities of any series by the holders of at least a majority in principal amount of the outstanding securities of that series and a waiver of the payment default that resulted from such acceleration);
12



(5)
makes the principal of or interest, if any, on any security payable in any currency other than that stated in the security;

(6)
makes any change with respect to holders' rights to receive principal and interest, the terms pursuant to which defaults can be waived, certain modifications affecting shareholders or certain currency-related issues; or

(7)
waives a redemption payment with respect to any security or changes any of the provisions with respect to the redemption of any securities;
will be effective against any holder without their consent.  Other terms as specified in subsequent filings may be modified without the consent of the holders.
Events of Default
We expect that each indenture will define an event of default for the debt securities of any series as being any one of the following events:

default in any payment of interest when due which continues for 30 days;

default in any payment of principal or premium at maturity;

default in the deposit of any sinking fund payment when due;

default in the performance of any covenant in the debt securities or the applicable indenture which continues for 60 days after we receive notice of the default;

default under a bond, debenture, note or other evidence of indebtedness for borrowed money by us or our subsidiaries (to the extent we are directly responsible or liable therefor) having a principal amount in excess of a minimum amount set forth in the applicable subsequent filings, whether such indebtedness now exists or is hereafter created, which default shall have resulted in such indebtedness becoming or being declared due and payable prior to the date on which it would otherwise have become due and payable, without such acceleration having been rescinded or annulled or cured within 30 days after we receive notice of the default; and

events of bankruptcy, insolvency or reorganization.
An event of default of one series of debt securities will not necessarily constitute an event of default with respect to any other series of debt securities.
There may be such other or different events of default as described in applicable subsequent filings with respect to any class or series of debt securities.
We expect that under each indenture, in case an event of default occurs and continues for the debt securities of any series, the applicable trustee or the holders of not less than 25% in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities then outstanding of that series may declare the principal and accrued but unpaid interest of the debt securities of that series to be due and payable.  Further, any event of default for the debt securities of any series which has been cured is expected to be permitted to be waived by the holders of a majority in aggregate principal amount of the debt securities of that series then outstanding.
We expect that each indenture will require us to file annually after debt securities are issued under that indenture with the applicable trustee a written statement signed by two of our officers as to the absence of material defaults under the terms of that indenture.  We also expect that each indenture will provide that the applicable trustee may withhold notice to the holders of any default if it considers it in the interest of the holders to do so, except notice of a default in payment of principal, premium or interest.
Subject to the duties of the trustee in case an event of default occurs and continues, we expect that each indenture will provide that the trustee is under no obligation to exercise any of its rights or powers under that indenture at the request, order or direction of holders unless the holders have offered to the trustee reasonable indemnity.  Subject to these provisions for indemnification and the rights of the trustee, each indenture is expected to provide that the holders of a majority in principal amount of the debt securities of any series then outstanding have the right to direct the time, method and place of conducting any proceeding for any remedy available to the trustee or exercising any trust or power conferred on the trustee as long as the exercise of that right does not conflict with any law or the indenture.
13


Defeasance and Discharge
The terms of each indenture are expected to provide us with the option to be discharged from any and all obligations in respect of the debt securities issued thereunder upon the deposit with the trustee, in trust, of money or U.S. government obligations, or both, which through the payment of interest and principal in accordance with their terms will provide money in an amount sufficient to pay any installment of principal, premium and interest on, and any mandatory sinking fund payments in respect of, the debt securities on the stated maturity of the payments in accordance with the terms of the debt securities and the indenture governing the debt securities.  We expect that this right may only be exercised if, among other things, we have received from, or there has been published by, the United States Internal Revenue Service a ruling to the effect that such a discharge will not be deemed, or result in, a taxable event with respect to holders.  This discharge would not apply to our obligations to register the transfer or exchange of debt securities, to replace stolen, lost or mutilated debt securities, to maintain paying agencies and hold moneys for payment in trust.
Defeasance of Certain Covenants
We expect that the terms of the debt securities provide us with the right not to comply with specified covenants and that specified events of default described in a subsequent filing will not apply provided we deposit with the trustee money or U.S. government obligations, or both, which through the payment of interest and principal will provide money in an amount sufficient to pay any installment of principal, premium, and interest on, and any mandatory sinking fund payments in respect of, the debt securities on the stated maturity of such payments in accordance with the terms of the debt securities and the indenture governing such debt securities. We expect that to exercise this right, we will also be required to deliver to the trustee an opinion of counsel to the effect that the deposit and related covenant defeasance should not cause the holders of such series to recognize income, gain or loss for federal income tax purposes.
We refer you to applicable subsequent filings with respect to any deletions or additions or modifications from the description contained in this prospectus.
14


DESCRIPTION OF WARRANTS
We may issue warrants to purchase any of our debt or equity securities or securities of third parties or other rights, including rights to receive payment in cash or securities based on the value, rate or price of one or more specified commodities, currencies, securities or indices, or any combination of the foregoing. Warrants may be issued independently or together with any other securities and may be attached to, or separate from, such securities. Each series of warrants will be issued under a separate warrant agreement to be entered into between us and a warrant agent. The terms of any warrants to be issued and a description of the material provisions of the applicable warrant agreement will be set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement.
The warrants will be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles thereof relating to conflicts of law that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction, unless otherwise stated in the applicable prospectus supplement (or a post-effective amendment hereto).
15


DESCRIPTION OF PURCHASE CONTRACTS
We may issue purchase contracts for the purchase or sale of any of our debt or equity securities issued by us.
Each purchase contract will entitle the holder thereof to purchase or sell, and obligate us to sell or purchase, on specified dates, such securities at a specified purchase price, which may be based on a formula, all as set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement. We may, however, satisfy our obligations, if any, with respect to any purchase contract by delivering the cash value of such purchase contract or the cash value of the security otherwise deliverable, as set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement. The applicable prospectus supplement will also specify the methods by which the holders may purchase or sell such securities, and any acceleration, cancellation or termination provisions, provisions relating to U.S. federal income tax considerations, if any, or other provisions relating to the settlement of a purchase contract.
The purchase contracts may require us to make periodic payments to the holders thereof or vice versa, which payments may be deferred to the extent set forth in the applicable prospectus supplement, and those payments may be unsecured or pre-funded on some basis. The purchase contracts may require the holders thereof to secure their obligations in a specified manner to be described in the applicable prospectus supplement. Alternatively, purchase contracts may require holders to satisfy their obligations thereunder when the purchase contracts are issued. Our obligation to settle such pre-paid purchase contracts on the relevant settlement date may constitute indebtedness. Accordingly, pre-paid purchase contracts will be issued under an indenture.
The purchase contracts will be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles thereof relating to conflicts of law that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction, unless otherwise stated in the applicable prospectus supplement (or a post-effective amendment hereto).
16


DESCRIPTION OF RIGHTS
We may issue rights to purchase our equity securities. These rights may be issued independently or together with any other security offered by this prospectus and may or may not be transferable by the shareholder receiving the rights in the rights offering. In connection with any rights offering, we may enter into a standby underwriting agreement with one or more underwriters pursuant to which the underwriter will purchase any securities that remain unsubscribed for upon completion of the rights offering.
The applicable prospectus supplement relating to any rights will describe the terms of the offered rights. The description in the applicable prospectus supplement of any rights we offer will not necessarily be complete and will be qualified in its entirety by reference to the applicable rights certificate or rights agreement, which will be filed with the Commission if we offer rights. For more information on how you can obtain copies of any rights certificate or rights agreement if we offer rights, see "Where You Can Find Additional Information" of this prospectus. We urge you to read the applicable rights certificate, the applicable rights agreement and any applicable prospectus supplement in their entirety.
The rights will be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to any principles thereof relating to conflicts of law that would result in the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction, unless otherwise stated in the applicable prospectus supplement (or a post-effective amendment hereto).
17


DESCRIPTION OF UNITS
As specified in the applicable prospectus supplement, we may issue units consisting of one or more of our rights, purchase contracts, warrants, debt securities, preferred shares, common shares or any combination of such securities.  The applicable prospectus supplement will describe the terms of the offered units.
18


TAX CONSIDERATIONS
United States Federal Income Tax Considerations
Our Annual Report on Form 20-F filed with the Commission on March 20, 2019, as updated by annual and other reports and documents we file with the Commission after the date of this prospectus and that are incorporated by reference herein, provides a discussion of the material U.S. federal income tax considerations that may be relevant to prospective investors in our common shares. The applicable prospectus supplement may also contain information about any material U.S. federal income tax considerations relating to the securities covered by such prospectus supplement.

SERVICE OF PROCESS AND ENFORCEMENT OF CIVIL LIABILITIES
We are a Marshall Islands company, and our principal executive offices are located outside the United States in Monaco, although we also have an office in New York. Some of our directors, officers and the experts named in this Registration Statement reside outside the United States. In addition, a substantial portion of our assets and the assets of certain of our directors, officers and experts are located outside the United States. As a result, you may have difficulty serving legal process within the United States upon us or any of these persons. You may also have difficulty enforcing, both in and outside the United States, judgments you may obtain in United States courts against us or these persons.
