The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has awarded a third liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunker supplier license to Total’s subsidiary in charge of worldwide bunkering activities, Total Marine Fuels Private Ltd, for a 5-year term starting January 1, 2022.
This achievement follows a 10-year agreement signed by Total in 2019 to develop an LNG bunker supply chain in the port of Singapore. It reaffirms the company’s commitment to contribute to the country’s ambition in becoming a key LNG bunkering hub for Asia.It also underscores Total’s confidence in the role of natural gas for the global maritime industry’s energy transition and in its potential to further reduce carbon emissions from ships, through the development and future introduction of carbon-neutral bioLNG.
Total has invested in LNG infrastructure, critical to support its shipping customers’ uptake of LNG as a marine fuel. Since November 2020, Total has been operating the LNG bunker vessel the ‘Gas Agility’ at the Port of Rotterdam, the Netherlands. By 2022, the company will launch another newly-built LNG bunker vessel in Marseille, France, while serving the Port of Singapore through a third one.
