FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M) and Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd, has completed its 10th ship-to-ship liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation in Singapore, it said on Tuesday.

“This is a milestone achievement for the FueLNG Bellina and its crew, who have been working tirelessly over the past few months to provide safe and efficient bunkering for our customers,” stated the Singapore LNG bunker supplier in a social media post.

Saunak Rai, General Manager of FueLNG, expressed his gratitude in a letter to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and Ley Hoon QUAH, Capt. M. Segar and Capt Daknash Ganasen.

“On behalf of the entire team from FueLNG, we would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation,” said Rai.

“The MPA team has gone out of the way to assist FueLNG in several ways to ensure that FueLNG is able to provide best-in-class service to the customer vessels arriving for LNG bunkering in Singapore.

“We thank the entire MPA team from the bottom of our hearts for your help and support.”

FueLNG further thanked its partners SLNG – Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd, PSA Singapore, Shell & Keppel Offshore & Marine.

“This reinforces our commitment to promoting the adoption of LNG as a marine fuel, and boosting the growth of Singapore as a global LNG bunkering hub,” it concludes.

FueLNG completed Singapore’s first bunkering of a LNG fuelled oil tanker in May; the firm completed its first ship-to-containership LNG bunkering operation in March.

In an interview with Manifold Times, FueLNG General Manager Saunak Rai said LNG bunkering volumes at Singapore port is set to grow by up to 90 times in 2021 compared to last year.
