‘Next generation’ LNG bunker vessel for Singapore
Total and Pavilion Energy are to share a long-term charter of an LNG bunker vessel as part of their agreement to develop the LNG bunker supply chain in Singapore.
The two companies signed heads of agreement earlier this week. Under the agreement, Pavilion will commission the ‘next generation’ vessel by 2020. An LNG supply arrangement between the two companies will enable Total to deliver LNG bunker to its customers.
Pavilion was awarded a LNG bunker supplier licence for the port of Singapore in January 2016. In October that year it was appointed as one of two importers to supply LNG to Singapore.
Tan Sri Mohd Hassan Marican, chairman. Pavilion Energy, said: “Our partnership sets the stage for making LNG bunker readily and reliably available for the market. Together, we mark a decisive step forward in leading the change towards cleaner and more responsible solutions with LNG bunkering in the region.”
Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions has signed LNG bunker supply contracts with Brittany Ferries and CMA CGM in Europe, as well as the chartering a bunker vessel with Mitsui OSK Lines that will be positioned in Northern Europe.
Patrick Pouyanné, chairman and CEO, Total, added: "The development of infrastructure is one of the key drivers for the take-off of LNG as a marine fuel. The agreement marks a new step in our commitment to provide our customers with fuels that are more environmentally friendly, particularly in Singapore which is the leading bunkering hub in the world.”
