Singapore LNG Terminal Capacity Rises to 6 Mtpa

Singapore LNG Corp. (SLNG) Pte Ltd. completed construction of a third storage tank and additional regasification facilities at the Singapore LNG (liquefied natural gas) Terminal, which is located at the southern-most tip of Jurong Island in Singapore, a company official told Rigzone.

"Construction of the Third Tank and additional regasification facilities have been completed, bringing the throughput capacity of the terminal to 6 Mtpa (million ton per annum). Utilization of this additional capacity will be dependent on the future requirements of the LNG importers, both existing and new," the SLNG said in an emailed reply to Rigzone.

The Singapore LNG Terminal commenced operations in May 2013 with two LNG storage tanks and a regasification capacity of 3.5 Mtpa. The third storage tank and additional regasification capacity were scheduled for completion late last year.

Meantime, SLNG is on track to increase the capacity of the Singapore LNG Terminal under Phase 3 expansion, which will boost its throughput capacity to 9 Mtpa.

"As for Phase 3 expansion, the final investment decision, including construction award, is on track for the second quarter of 2014," SLNG said when asked about the status of the project.
