Jointly launched by the Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG) and MPA, the facility is an important first step towards developing the LNG trucking business in Singapore, which also helps facilitate truck-to-ship LNG bunkering.

The statement added that the facility allows small quantities of LNG to be transported overland to almost all location, which may include industrial plants that could use natural gas for furnaces and burners.

"As the leading bunkering hub in the world, Singapore need to ensure that we cater to the future energy needs of the global shipping industry by providing cleaner, alternative sources of fuel," Chief Executive of MPA Andrew Tan said.

"While it may take time for LNG to take off as a marine fuel globally, we have taken steps to kick-start LNG bunkering in Singapore through our LNG Bunkering Pilot Programme," Tan added.
