In the short term, Flex LNG is focused on the construction of the new builds; on 31 July 2014 it signed a supervision contract for the construction phase with Schulte Marine Concept.
According to Flex LNG, the company has been working to obtain finance for the construction period and is seeking charter parties for the vessels.
