Construction of Singapore LNG’s fourth storage tank set to be completed by the first half of 2018, the city-state’s trade minister told delegates at an LNG conference.
The tank with a capacity of 260,000 cubic metres will provide LNG traders with more options and flexibility, said S Iswaran.
“SLNG will soon call for proposals to use its spare capacity to grow its ancillary services,” he is reported to have said.
In 2014, Singapore LNG Corporations awarded the Engineering, Procurement and Construction contract of the phase 3 expansion of the terminal to Samsung C&T Corporation.
Along side the construction of a fourth storage tank, the contract also includes development of additional regasification facilties.
Upon completion, the terminal’s send-out capacity will increase from the current 6 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) to around 11 Mtpa. At 260,000 cubic metres, the new fourth LNG storage tank will be one of the largest in the world, and able to receive a full cargo load from a Q-Max carrier.
Other key facilities to be added include a new terminal substation, additional open rack vapourisers (ORVs) and LNG booster pumps, and equipment to allow the correction of Wobbe Index of regasified LNG, where necessary, to meet Singapore’s gas specifications.
