Pavilion Energy – Singapore's state-owned LNG operator – says it has successfully performed the first commercial ship-to-ship LNG bunkering in the Port of Singapore.
The operation involved the reloading of 2,000 cu m of LNG onto a small-scale tanker at a newly modified jetty within the Singapore LNG (SLNG) Terminal – followed by a ship-to-ship transfer to a receiving heavy-lift commercial vessel.
“This first commercial ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation in Singapore demonstrates our strong commitment and capability to delivering a comprehensive suite of LNG bunker supply solutions to Singapore and the region,” says Frédéric Barnaud, CEO of Pavilion Energy.
The development comes as Singapore – the world's largest bunkering port – continues to expand its LNG infrastructure and strengthen its role as a global bunkering port and LNG trading hub.
Pavilion Energy demonstrated truck-to-ship bunkering capabilities in 2017, and further expanded its bunker logistics with the charter of its first LNG bunker vessel new build earlier this year.
