Flex Vigilant is a sister vessel to Flex Aurora, Flex Amber, and Flex Volunteer, all featuring DXF two-stroke propulsion.
Flex LNG added that subsequently to delivery, Flex Vigilant will commence a minimum of three years time charter deployment with Cheniere Energy.
New Charter Deal
The company recently secured a charter deal with an LNG portfolio player for its Flex Freedom LNG carrier. The vessel is currently serving a charter deal with an Asian-based energy company until the second quarter of 2022.
The new contract will have a fixed term of either three or five years, the shipper said.
After the deal expires in the first or second quarter of 2022, Flex Freedom will commence its new deal.

The charterer has the option to extend the period by an additional two years bringing the total period to five or seven years.
