Singapore launches truck loading facility

Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) and the Maritime Port Authority (MPA) of Singapore jointly launched the nation’s first LNG Truck Loading Facility during a ceremony held on 12 April 2017, at the SLNG Terminal. The launch, which was officiated by Chief Executive Officer of SLNG, Mr. John Ng, and Chief Executive of MPA, Mr Andrew Tan, marks the readiness of the facility for operations.Located within the SLNG Terminal on Jurong Island, the single-bay facility is an important first step towards developing the LNG trucking business in Singapore, which also helps to facilitate truck-to-ship LNG bunkering. The facility allows small quantities of LNG to be transported overland to just about any location where it may be needed. This may include industrial plants that could use natural gas for furnaces and burners but are not connected to the gas pipeline network, and locations in the port from where LNG may be delivered to ships for use as fuel.
