Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG) has completed modifications to the Secondary Jetty at its Terminal on Jurong Island, and it is now able to receive and reload small liquefied natural gas (LNG) ships.

The new Small-Scale LNG (SSLNG) Facility, completed on February 13, 2019, would be able to received ships of between 2,000 m3 and 10,000 m3 in capacity.

The company said that SSLNG would help spur the development of the small-scale LNG market in various forms, including the delivery of LNG as bunker fuel to ships in the Port of Singapore.

The SLNG Terminal’s Secondary Jetty was originally designed to accommodate LNG ships of 60,000 m3 to 265,000 m3 in size.

In June 2017, SLNG performed a gas-up/cool-down and reload operation for the 6,500 m3 LNG bunker vessel, Cardissa. Following this event, and to better support small-scale LNG and LNG bunkering, SLNG took the initiative to commence modification works to the jetty so that even smaller LNG ships could reload at the terminal.

The modifications included the installation of a new marine loading arm and gangway, and new facilities for securing small LNG ships at the jetty.

“We believe that there is good potential for the small-scale LNG market to flourish in this part of the world, and the timely completion of the SSLNG Facility is an important step forward in SLNG’s efforts to support this growth,” Sandeep Mahawar, Interim CEO and Vice President (Commercial) of SLNG, said.

“It also serves to promote the development of LNG bunkering in Singapore, which is another potential growth area given Singapore’s already well-established reputation as the top bunkering port in the world. As demand builds and there is a viable business case, SLNG may consider installing topsides at its Tertiary Jetty to accommodate more SSLNG reloads.”
