Pavilion Energy said it has performed the first commercial ship-to-ship LNG bunkering in the Port of Singapore.
The operation, the first of such in Singapore, comprised a reload of 2,000 cubic meters of LNG onto a small-scale tanker at the newly-modified secondary jetty of the Singapore LNG (SLNG) terminal, followed by a ship-to-ship transfer to the receiving heavy-lift commercial vessel.
Speaking of the operation, Frédéric Barnaud, Group CEO of Pavilion Energy said the milestone has been achieved the milestone in cooperation with the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) and SLNG corporation.
Through its unit, Pavilion Gas, a licensed LNG bunker supplier in the Port of Singapore, demonstrated its truck-to-ship bunkering capabilities in 2017, and further expanded its bunker logistics with the charter of its first LNG bunker vessel newbuild in February 2019, the company said in its statement.
The 12,000-cbm GTT Mark III Flex membrane LNG bunker vessel is set for delivery by 2021 and is the largest of its kind set for use in the Port of Singapore to date.
