Shipping tycoon John Fredriksen is aiming to take control of Oslo-listed Flex LNG following his purchase of 12.7 million shares that brought his stake in the firm to 43.3 percent, his firm Geveran said on Friday.
 
"Geveran will make a mandatory offer for the remaining shares in Flex LNG within four weeks," Geveran said in a statement. Flex LNG is awaiting the delivery of two liquefied natural gas carriers due in 2017.
