Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel starts commercial ops

Singapore’s first LNG bunkering ship FueLNG Bellina, owned by Keppel Offshore & Marine and Shell, has started commercial operations in the country following recent delivery in China.

FueLNG, a joint venture between the duo, took delivery of the vessel at Keppel’s Nantong yard in early January after it departed to Singapore.

The 7,500-cbm dual-fuel bunkering vessel enables Shell and Keppel to be the first to provide regular ship-to-ship LNG bunkering services within the Singapore port.

“The vessel has now become commercially operational in Singapore and is ready to supply
LNG as marine fuel,” Japan’s K Line, which officially took over the technical management of FueLNG Bellina, said on Wednesday.

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.
