Singapore : SINGAPORE might provide several LNG Bunkering Permits.
The Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) might grant over one licence for bunkering liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the coming 2 years.
Andrew Tan, chief executive of authority, made the declaration at the Singapore Maritime Institute Forum 2015, after getting several proposals from the industry for LNG bunkering licences.
However, he decided that granting more licenses might at last depend on the need for LNG bunkering.
He said LNG is a major development for clean energy usage in the Port of Singapore.
This is accordance in with the port's aspect for the usage of smarter technology with greener, additional sustainable port operations, witness specifically with the next-generation port in Tuas.
The Tuas upgrade plan, known as Next-Generation Port (NGP) 2030, has scheduled 2017 for the unveiling of an LNG bunkering pilot programme there.
The MPA envisions that the commencement of LNG bunkering might drive to the port eventually building as an LNG bunkering centre.
