Singapore to become LNG bunker ready port
by Singapore (Government)
The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) intends for Singapore to become a cleaner and greener port by adopting liquefied natural gas (LNG) as one of the cleaner marine fuel solutions for the future.

To this end, MPA is working with the shipping industry to bolster our LNG bunkering capabilities to be a LNG bunker ready port by 2020. This includes putting in place necessary infrastructure for the end-to-end LNG bunker supply chain, developing regulatory schemes and ensuring a sufficient supply.

MPA is also working with other ports and maritime administrations for the harmonisation of standards and procedures for LNG bunkering.
