Singapore: MPA prepares for LNG bunkering

Singapore’s first LNG terminal on Jurong Island

The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore will be starting work on an LNG bunkering programme by early 2017.


MPA will be commencing work on a pilot programme by early 2017 with interested parties of the LNG bunker supply chain,” MPA said in a statement.

MPA also said that it will provide funding of up to S$2 million per vessel for up to 6 LNG-fuelled vessels for the pilot programme.

There are several established modes of LNG delivery such as the use of iso-tank containers, ship-to-ship transfer and terminal-to-ship transfer,” MPA said.

For the purpose of this pilot programme, MPA is evaluating the most cost-effective mode of LNG delivery to test and establish operational standards and procedures.

Andrew Tan, Chief Executive of MPA said, “The bunkering industry is an important and integral part of our global hub port. As a top bunkering port, we will continue to raise our bunkering standards to ensure fuel quality and reliability. MPA continues to work closely with all our stakeholders to address the key issues and prepare the bunkering industry for the future.”
