Pavilion Energy on Thursday (2 May) said it has performed the first commercial ship-to-ship LNG bunkering in the Port of Singapore.
The operation comprised a reload of 2,000m3 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.
“Pavilion Energy’s first commercial ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operations in Singapore demonstrates our strong commitment and capability to deliver a comprehensive suite of LNG bunker supply solutions to Singapore and the region,” said Mr. Frederic H. Barnaud, Group CEO of Pavilion Energy.
“We are very pleased to have achieved this shared milestone in close collaboration with the Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) and SLNG Corporation, and with the support from various stakeholders, partners and customers.”
Quah Ley Hoon, Chief Executive of MPA, said, “As the world’s largest bunkering port, Singapore is committed to provide a range of bunkering solutions to meet the future energy needs of the global shipping industry.”
“We congratulate Pavilion Gas for completing this ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation in the Port of Singapore safely and look forward to more of such activities taking place in our Port.”
Tan Soo Koong, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore LNG Corporation, said, “SLNG is proud to have played a part in achieving this important milestone.”
“We strongly believe that LNG will become the worldwide fuel of choice for bunkering in the long term, and SLNG is well-positioned to facilitate this development. We are keen to work with all stakeholders and invest in infrastructure as necessary, to help grow LNG bunkering here.”
Pavilion Energy 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 12,000 m3 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.
