Singapore: EPS completes 50th LNG bunkering operation across fleet

16 Sep 2022

Singapore-based shipping firm Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) in June took delivery of M/T Starway – the world’s second dual fuel LNG Suezmax after M/T Greenway, according to the firm on Thursday (15 September). 

After delivery, M/T Starway completed LNG bunkering operations in Malaysia. This marked the 50th time in two years that EPS has bunkered LNG across its fleet of dual fuel containerships, dry bulk, and tanker vessels, according to the firm. 

“Most of EPS’ dual fuel vessels are on long-term time charters to leading companies like BHP, CMA CGM, Equinor, and STL. However, our pair of dual fuel LNG Suezmaxes trade in the spot market. Bunkering LNG for spot vessels showcases our deep commitment to decarbonisation and the industry’s energy transition,” the firm said.  

“It also proves that the needed infrastructure to carry out LNG bunkering already exists for those willing to take action to lower their emissions today.

“EPS is proud to play a leading role in this category and will continue to work towards lowering our emissions even further!” it added. 

Manifold Times, in July, reported EPS completed its first LNG bunkering operation for its managed vessel Greenway – the world’s first dual-fuel LNG Suezmax tanker. 

The supply of 1,500mt of LNG took place at the Port of Pengerang on 4 July in Malaysia following the vessel’s delivery from China’s Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Limited on 28 June 2022.
