SLNG modifies secondary jetty for LNG bunkering

23 Jan 2018

Singapore LNG corporation (SLNG) is in the process of changing the design of its secondary jetty to accommodate liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operations for vessels to prepare for expected demand, says its Chief Executive.

The jetty, initially designed to berth vessels between 60,000 to 265,000 cubic metres (m3) LNG capacity ships, is now being modified to fit smaller ships of 2,000 to 10,000 m3; the modification is expected to be completed in 2019.

"Such an undertaking is to signal to the market that we are prepared to spend money to develop this small- scale LNG business," John Ng told Business Times.

Ng expects demand for LNG bunkering to increase from 2020, when the International Maritime Organization (IMO) rule for the consumption of 0.50% sulphur limit marine fuel takes effect.

In April 2016, SLNG introduced LNG bunker delivery operations via a truck-to-ship method.
