Singapore’s first LNG bunkering vessel calls at Singapore LNG terminal
The FueLNG Bellina, Singapore's first liquefied natural gas bunkering vessel, docked at the Singapore LNG import terminal on Jurong Island.
On March 10, the vessel made the first call for a cool-down service at the port, according to a brief statement released via Singapore LNG Corporation's social media networks.
FueLNG, a joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine and Shell Eastern Petroleum, owns FueLNG Bellina. It was delivered in January by Keppel Offshore & Marine's Nantong shipyard.
The first contracts for the 7,500-cbm vessel will be for ship-to-ship LNG bunkering for Shell-chartered tankers and one of Hapag Lloyd's container vessels.
FueLNG will also include LNG bunkering from Keppel O&M's Floating Living Lab, which will be Singapore's first dedicated LNG bunkering facility. When the plant is ready to run at the end of 2021, Shell will supply the LNG.
At the end of last month, FueLNG Bellina began commercial operations.
