Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd (SLNG) has awarded a FEED contract to WorleyParsons Pte Ltd to define the scope of the expansion of its LNG Terminal send-out and storage capacities.
The proposed expansion will enhance Singapore’s energy security by allowing further diversification of fuel sources. The additional capacity will also allow Singapore to respond to new opportunities in global LNG markets.
The expansion plans include the installation of additional facilities to increase the Terminal’s capacity from its current 6 million tpy throughput to a new annual capacity of 9 million tpy, and the construction of a fourth tank.
“The project officially kicked off on 29 October 2012 and is expected to be completed by early Q2 2013. The final investment decision for the construction of the fourth LNG storage tank and its associated facilities will be made after that,” explains Mr Neil McGregor, Chief Executive Officer of SLNG.
