Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) is now able to receive and reload small LNG ships of between 2,000 cbm and 10,000 cbm in capacity.
This new Small-Scale LNG (SSLNG) Facility, completed on February 13, 2019, will help spur the development of the small-scale LNG market in various forms; for example, in the supply of LNG to isolated power plants in remote areas in the region, or in 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 cbm to 265,000 cbm in size. In June 2017, SLNG successfully performed a Gas-Up/Cool-Down and Reload operation for the 6,500 cbm LNG bunker vessel, Cardissa. Following on that success, and to better support small-scale LNG and LNG bunkering, SLNG took the initiative to commence modification works to its Secondary Jetty so that even smaller LNG ships could reload at the Terminal. The modifications include the installation of a new Marine Loading Arm and Gangway, and new facilities for securing small LNG ships at the jetty.
