SLNG, Keppel partner to strengthen SG as LNG hub
This is in line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030.
Singapore LNG Corp Pte Ltd (SLNG) and Keppel Infrastructure have partnered to strengthen Singapore’s position as a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and chemicals hub.
The collaboration was made through Keppel’s subsidiary Keppel Energy Pte Ltd and industry partner Front End Engineering Design for Natural Gas Liquids Extraction Facility at the SLNG Terminal on Jurong Island.
“This project is part of SLNG’s continuing efforts to not just meet but exceed our energy security mandate; and to do so in an environmentally sustainable way,” Tan Soo Koong, CEO, SLNG, said.
The project is expected to bring multiple benefits across the LNG and chemicals value chains, adopting a sustainable approach towards enhancing Singapore’s Energy Security.
The NGL Extraction Facility serves to remove the heavier hydrocarbons such as ethane or propane, also known as NGL, from LNG.
The design of the facility will adopt a sustainable approach, which can lead to significant carbon abatement.
The project will also allow for higher handling flexibility of LNG through Singapore.
This could also open up more possibilities for the larger LNG ecosystem, such as in the use of LNG as a marine fuel.
The project is in line with the Singapore Green Plan 2030 which sought to transform Jurong Island’s transformation into a sustainable energy and chemicals park.
