K Line to Manage FueLNG’s Singapore LNG Bunker Vessel

To be built by Keppel O&M, South East Asia’s first LNG bunkering vessel will provide LNG to global customers who pass through the Port of Singapore

Japan’s shipping firm Kawasaki Kisen Kaisha (K Line) has entered into a ship management agreement for FueLNG’s 7,500 cbm LNG bunkering newbuild that will operate in Singapore.

The partnership will combine K Line’s ship management and LNG transportation experience with FueLNG’s LNG bunkering expertise, which includes more than 160 truck-to-ship LNG bunkering operations conducted to-date.

The vessel is expected to start LNG-bunkering service in Singapore, one of world’s largest bunkering ports, in the second half of 2020, after delivery from Keppel Offshore & Marine’s shipyard where it is being built.

This will be the first LNG bunker vessel providing ship-to-ship bunkering in Singapore.

FueLNG, a joint venture between Shell and Keppel Offshore & Marine, will own and operate the vessel. It will be based in the Port of Singapore and will supply necessary LNG fuel to large ocean-going LNG-fueled vessels throughout the region.

To help spur the project, Singapore’s Maritime and Port Authority (MPA) recently granted up to USD 3 million to FueLNG Pte Ltd to build the vessel.
