Singapore’s Pavilion wraps up first op with MOL’s LNG bunkering ship

Singapore’s Pavilion Energy, a unit of Temasek, has completed the first liquefied natural gas bunkering operation with MOL’s recently delivered LNG bunkering vessel, Brassavola.

According to a statement issued by Pavilion on Monday, Brassavola’s maiden ship-to-ship bunkering operation took place in the port of Singapore.

The LNG bunkering vessel delivered 1,970 metric tonnes of LNG to Rio Tinto’s chartered dual-fueled bulk carrier Mount Api. Singapore’s EPS owns this 2023-built bulk carrier.

Pavilion will now significantly expand its LNG bunkering bossiness with the launch of Brassavola’s operations.

The firm said it has bunkered more than 280 truck loads of LNG since it received a bunkering license in 2016.

Pavilion also joined forces in August last year with a unit of China’s CNOOC to complete their inaugural STS LNG bunkering operation in China.

Singapore’s first membrane LNG bunkering vessel

Last month, Singapore’s Seatrium delivered MOL’s LNG bunkering vessel, Brassavola, which will serve Pavilion Energy and also TotalEnergies in the port of Singapore.

Seatrium handed over what it says is Singapore’s first membrane LNG bunkering vessel to Indah Singa Maritime, a unit of MOL.

The newbuild is on charter to Pavilion LNG Bunker I, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Pavilion.

Pavilion previously said that it expected the vessel to be operational in the first quarter of 2023.

The vessel was launched in April 2022 and MOL, Pavilion, and TotalEnergies named it in October 2022.

Measuring 116.5 meters in length and 22 meters in width, the vessel has a capacity of 12,000-cbm.

This ship joins Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel, the 7,500-cbm FueLNG Bellina, owned by Seatrium and Shell, and FueLNG’s second vessel, the 18,000-cbm FueLNG Venosa, owned by Korea Line LNG.

Brassavola features two GTT Mark III Flex membrane tanks as well as dual-fuel engines running on LNG or marine diesel oil.

Also, it has reliquefaction technology for more efficient boil-off gas management.
