FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd (Keppel O&M) and Shell Eastern Petroleum (Pte) Ltd, has set a new industry milestone for Singapore by completing its 100th LNG bunkering operation.

Since May 2018, FueLNG has been providing truck-to-ship LNG bunkering for two dual-fuel tugs operated by Keppel Smit Towage.

FueLNG is also able to provide LNG for the commissioning of LNG systems and machinery, and trials for gas-fueled vessels. In September 2017, FueLNG completed its first operation and provided LNG for the commissioning of the floating liquefaction vessel Hilli Episeyo.

“This milestone is testament to FueLNG’s ability to provide safe, cost-efficient and reliable LNG bunkering for our clients,” said Chris Ong, Chairman, FueLNG and CEO, Keppel O&M. “We are optimistic that the industry will increasingly adopt LNG as a marine fuel and look forward to furthering our partnership with industry stakeholders to build a world-class LNG bunkering network in Singapore.”

“By leveraging the strengths of its parent companies, FueLNG is able to provide comprehensive solutions for a range of activities such as LNG bunkering and distribution to industrial and consumer customers,” said Tahir Faruqui, Director, FueLNG and Head, Shell Global Downstream LNG. “The delivery of our LNG bunkering vessel in 2020 is an important step for growing a robust and reliable global LNG fuel supply chain in the years to come as we will be able to increase the availability of LNG with ship-to-ship services for our end clients.”

The benefits of LNG as fuel have been tracked by Keppel Smit Towage, which has observed that when running on LNG, the tugs perform as efficiently as when using diesel, but consume 5% less fuel in tonnes.
