Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) on Tuesday (24 October) said it will be developing and eventually operating the second liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in Singapore. 

It said the second terminal will better enable Singapore’s demand for natural gas to be met entirely by liquefied natural gas, should that become necessary; and will enhance SLNG’s capacity to deliver more LNG-related services, further entrenching Singapore as a key trading and bunkering hub for LNG.

The initiative was announced by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance Mr Lawrence Wong, who was speaking as the Guest-of-Honour at SLNG’s 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner at Sands Grand Ballroom, Sands Expo and Convention Centre.

Unlike the current SLNG Terminal on Jurong Island, which is an onshore terminal, SLNG is studying a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU) concept for the Second Terminal. This is an LNG ship with onboard regasification facilities. The FRSU concept offers greater flexibility in meeting the nation’s energy security and sustainability objectives, as it could be easily redeployed to another location as a receiving terminal, if necessary.

The Second Terminal will have a gas supply capacity of up to 5 Million Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA), which is about half that of the current SLNG Terminal, and will be connected to Singapore’s gas pipeline grid via an onshore gas pipeline to be installed as part of the project. SLNG is aiming to have the Second Terminal operational by the end of this decade.

Mr Tan Soo Koong, CEO SLNG, said, “I am delighted and proud that SLNG has been given the approval to develop this strategically important project, which will considerably enhance Singapore’s energy security. This is a momentous milestone for SLNG as the approval came at a time when we are celebrating our 10th anniversary.”

“It is a testimony that we have done our core job well over the past 10 years, and reinforces the important role that SLNG will continue to play in Singapore’s energy security in the next decade and more.”

As of end September 2023, the SLNG Terminal has received about 430 LNG cargoes for its Throughput service, totaling some 1,399.8 Trillion British Thermal Units (TBTU) or approximately 26.58 Million Tonnes. It has also received close to 190 ships for its Storage & Reload and LNG Bunkering services; and 130 ships for its Gassing-up and Cool-down service. Additionally, the terminal has conducted 18 LNG Transhipment and more than 3,730 LNG Truck Loading operations.

Pavilion Energy

Shell Eastern Trading, a subsidiary of Shell plc, on Tuesday (18 June) said it reached an agreement with Carne Investments Pte. Ltd., an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Temasek, to acquire 100% of the shares in Singapore-based LNG bunker provider Pavilion Energy. 

Pavilion Energy includes a global liquefied natural gas (LNG) trading business with a contracted supply volume comprising about 6.5 million tonnes per annum (mtpa).

Headquartered in Singapore, Pavilion Energy’s global energy business encompasses LNG trading, shipping, natural gas supply and marketing activities in Asia and Europe.

“The acquisition of Pavilion Energy will strengthen Shell’s leadership position in LNG, bringing material volumes and additional flexibility into our global portfolio,” said Zoë Yujnovich, Shell’s Integrated Gas and Upstream Director. 

“We will acquire Pavilion’s portfolio of LNG offtake and supply contracts, which includes additional access to strategic gas markets in Asia and Europe. By integrating these into Shell’s global LNG portfolio, Shell is strongly positioned to deliver value from this transaction while helping to meet the energy security needs of our customers.”

The acquisition will be absorbed within Shell’s cash capital expenditure guidance, which remains unchanged. The deal is in excess of the internal rate of return (IRR) hurdle rate for Shell’s Integrated Gas business, delivering on its 15-25% growth ambition for purchased volumes, relative to 2022, as outlined during the 2023 Capital Markets Day.

Integration of portfolios will commence after completion of the deal, which is expected by Q1 2025, subject to regulatory approvals and fulfilment of other conditions precedent.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding launches LNG-fuelled Ro-Ro vessel “Trans Harmony Green”

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) Group company based in Yokohama, Friday (7 June) held a christening and launch ceremony for the TRANS HARMONY GREEN, the first of two LNG-powered roll-on/roll-off (RO/RO) ships under construction for Toyofuji Shipping Co., Ltd. 

The ceremony took place at the Enoura Plant of MHI's Shimonoseki Shipyard & Machinery Works in Yamaguchi Prefecture. 

The ship's handover is scheduled for late January 2025 following completion of outfitting work and sea trials. The TRANS HARMONY GREEN will serve as a RO/RO vessel on shipping routes in Asia.

The TRANS HARMONY GREEN is approximately 195 metres in overall length, approximately 30.6 metres in breadth, and has gross tonnage of approximately 49,500. It can simultaneously transport about 3,000 passenger cars. 

The ship's main engine and main generator engine are high-performance dual-fuel engines each accommodating LNG or diesel fuel. 

Together these engines enable a greater than 25% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to ships with the same hull and powered by fuel oil, cutting SOx (sulphur oxides) emissions to near zero, thereby helping to reduce the vessel's environmental footprint.

Mitsubishi Shipbuilding previously received orders for a total of 18 high-pressure FGSS units, including units for SWEET PEA LEADER and DAISY LEADER, both of which are LNG-fuelled car carriers built by Imabari Shipbuilding Group and have already entered into service respectively in October 2023 and in March 2024. 

The FGSS ordered by Imabari Shipbuilding features an optimised cargo space layout utilising a modular design for space-saving and maintenance access, shortened construction schedule at shipyards, and a proprietary control system that can be customised according to customer needs, contributing to both operability and safety. 

With this additional order, Mitsubishi Shipbuilding will supply a total 20 units (15 car carriers and 5 bulk carriers) to Imabari Shipbuilding Group.

“Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, as part of MHI Group's strategic initiatives for energy transition, will provide FGSS units to a broad range of customers involved in the construction of LNG-fuelled vessels, enhancing the added value and competitiveness of ships,” it said on its website.
