Singapore’s first LNG bunkering ship ready to start work

FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine and Shell, has taken delivery of Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel.

Keppel Offshore & Marine said in a statement on Monday its Nantong yard in China delivered the FueLNG Bellina.

Following arrival in Singapore, the 7,500-cbm dual-fuel bunkering vessel will enable the venture to be the first to provide regular ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services within the Singapore port.

Moreover, FueLNG previously said the vessel’s first contracts would include bunkering Shell-chartered tankers and Hapag Lloyd’s container vessels.

The venture will also provide LNG fueling from Singapore’s first dedicated bunkering facility which Keppel O&M will build on its floating living lab.

As per specifications, the vessel has a filling rate range of up to 1000 cbm of LNG per hour.

Additionally, it will be able to supply LNG to various types of vessels at heights ranging from 3-23 meters above water level.

Japan’s K-Line will manage the vessel as part of a deal signed last year.

Singapore is heavily investing in LNG as fuel and currently has two licensed bunkering suppliers in the Singapore port including FueLNG but also Pavilion.

MPA also launched a request for proposal in October last year as it looks to add more LNG bunkering suppliers in the port.

The authority plans to announce the award of new LNG bunker supplier licence(s), if any, by February 2021.
