Flex LNG is kicking the tyres on carbon capture.

While extolling the virtues of his company’s modern fleet — Flex’s 13 ships were all built in 2018 or later and are less carbon-intense than most of the rest of the world’s LNG carrier fleet — chief executive Oystein Kalleklev said the ships could be used to capture the CO2.

“LNG carriers are ideal for carbon capture,” Kalleklev said at the Marine Money Week conference in New York on Thursday.
