Background

Singapore LNG Terminal is an LNG import terminal in West Region, Singapore. It is owned by Singapore LNG Corporation with capacity of 6 mtpa. It was commissioned in 2013.[1]

In August 2014 Singapore LNG announced that it was expanding the terminal's capacity from 6 mtpa to 11 mtpa. The expansion is planned for completion in 2018.[2]

Expansion Project Details

  • Owner: Singapore LNG Corporation
  • Location: Jurong Island, West Region, Singapore
  • Coordinates: 1.23616, 103.67135 (exact)
  • Capacity: 5.3 mtpa, 0.76 bcfd
  • Status: Proposed
  • Type: Import
  • Start Year: 2022

Note: mtpa = million tonnes per year; bcfd = billion cubic feet per day

Expansion Background

As of January 2018 the expansion to 11 mtpa was complete, and a further expansion was planned for late 2018, involving the construction of a fourth storage tank that would hold 260,000 cubic meters of gas.[3] In December 2018 it was reported that SLNG was considering building a fifth storage tank with 180,000-cbm to 260,000-cbm capacity and commencement date of 2022 or 2023.[4]

Singapore LNG, owner and operator of the Jurong LNG terminal, is performing studies to build additional jetty capacity to support future small-scale LNG and LNG bunkering demand. In July 2020 the Energy Market Authority of Singapore issued a Request-for-Proposal (RFP) to appoint up to two additional LNG term importers for Singapore. A decision is expected in the first half of 2021.[5]
