Singapore’s FueLNG completes 200th STS bunkering operation

Singapore’s FueLNG, a joint venture consisting of Shell and Seatrium, has completed its 200th ship-to-ship (STS) LNG bunkering operation.

FuelLNG said in a statement on Monday the milestone operation took place on June 29 in Singapore.

During the operation, the 18,500-cbm bunkering vessel, FueLNG Venosa, delivered 9,000 cbm of LNG to CMA CGM’s 13,000-teu LNG-powered containership, CMA CGM Bahia.

The JV previously said that it took it about 2.5 years to achieve the first 100 STS LNG bunkering operation, and 5 months to achieve 150 operations in March this, underscoring the exponential growth and burgeoning demand for LNG bunkering in Singapore.

This means that FueLNG achieved these new 50 operations in a bit more than three months.

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, 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.
