Singapore’s FueLNG completes 150th STS bunkering operation

Singapore’s FueLNG, a joint venture consisting of Shell and Seatrium, has completed its 150th ship-to-ship (STS) LNG bunkering operation.

FuelLNG said the milestone operation took place on March 23 in Singapore.

During the operation, the 7,500-cbm bunkering vessel, FueLNG Bellina, delivered LNG to NYK Line’s PCTC, Freesia Leader.

The JV noted that it took it about 2.5 years to achieve the first 100 STS LNG bunkering operation.

“We have now completed another 50 operations in 5 months, underscoring the exponential growth and burgeoning demand for LNG bunkering in Singapore,” FueLNG said.

FueLNG Bellina is Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel and it completed its first operation with a CMA CGM container vessel in March 2021.

In June last year, the 18,000-cbm FueLNG Venosa completed its first LNG bunkering operation to the 210,000-dwt bulk carrier, Mount Tai.

This is FueLNG’s second bunkering vessel and the JV charters it from Korea Line LNG, a unit of SM Group’s Korea Line.

In addition to STS operations, FueLNG has carried out over 500 truck-to-ship bunkering operations and more than 650 truck-to-industry LNG distribution since its establishment in 2016, it said in October last year.

FueLNG plans to add bio-LNG and hydrogen-based e-LNG to its portfolio in the future to further slash emissions.
