Flex LNG takes orderbook to six

Oslo-listed Flex LNG has revealed its orderbook now stands at six gas carriers. The John Fredriksen-controlled vehicle has four ships now on order at South Korea’s Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME) and two at compatriot yard Samsung Heavy Industries. All the ships will deliver by 2019.

“All of the contracts have been signed and the initial payments have been processed during the course of this month,” Flex LNG chief executive Jonathan Cook told Reuters in a recent interview.
