April 14, 2021
Hamilton, Bermuda

Flex LNG, Ltd. (“Flex LNG” or the “Company”) (OSE/NYSE: FLNG)
announced today it has entered into time charterparty agreements with Cheniere
Marketing International (“Cheniere”) for four LNG carriers with the option
for a fifth LNG carrier.

Under the agreements, Flex LNG will employ newbuild Flex Vigilant which will
be delivered to Cheniere ex-yard in May 2021. In addition, Flex LNG will
deliver two of its existing LNG carriers to Cheniere during the third quarter
of 2021, and a third existing LNG carrier during the third quarter of 2022.
Cheniere will have the option to add a fifth LNG carrier from Flex LNG’s
existing fleet during the third quarter of 2022. The firm charter period for
each of the four initial LNG carriers is between three and three and a half
years, with an option for Cheniere to extend each by up to two additional
years.

Øystein M. Kalleklev, Chief Executive Officer of Flex LNG Management AS,
commented:

“We are very pleased to enter into these agreements with Cheniere. The
agreements secure attractive employment for four, possibly five, of our ships
with a first-class charterer. Our large and energy efficient ships are
particularly well suited for their long-haul trade and align with Cheniere’s
efforts to secure required shipping capacity while improving the environmental
performance of their overall fleet. Hence, this agreement makes very much
sense for both parties, so we look forward to further developing our
relationship in the years to come. Lastly, these contracts add substantial
revenue backlog to our Company which is in line with our communicated strategy
of securing attractive term-employment for our ships when we think the time is
right.”

All existing Flex LNG ships are large LNG carriers with a cargo capacity of
approximately 173,400 to 174,000 cubic meters (CBM) and fitted with efficient
dual-fuel two-stroke propulsion (MEGI/XDF). This makes the ships particularly
ideal for large parcel, long haul transportation with the industry’s lowest
carbon footprint and unit transportation cost.

The Time Charter Party Agreements remain subject to final documentation and
certain closing conditions in connection with the delivery and acceptance of
the LNG carriers to Cheniere.
