Singapore LNG Terminal
The Singapore LNG terminal began operations in May 2013 with two storage tanks, a jetty and throughput capacity of 3.5 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa).
Situated on a 40-hectare plot on Jurong Island, it was built at a cost of S$1.7 billion. The terminal is the result of several years of work, which began with feasibility studies in 2005.
During the global financial crisis in 2009, the Singapore government took over the development and ownership of the terminal as it was in Singapore’s strategic interests to do so. Today, the terminal is a key energy infrastructure that is aimed at diversifying and securing energy sources.
Given the terminal’s strategic importance, the government has been expanding the terminal ahead of demand. The terminal now has a third tank, a secondary jetty and additional regasification facilities with a throughput capacity of 6 Mtpa. When additional regasification equipment are added by 2017 and a fourth tank by 2018, the terminal’s capacity will increase to at least 11 Mtpa. The terminal can accommodate seven storage tanks, with a throughput capacity of 15 Mtpa.
The terminal is an open-access terminal that will provide terminal services without discrimination. It offers a range of ancillary services, such as Storage and Reload, Storage and Sendout, and vessel cooldown. However, access to the LNG terminal will be subject to the spare capacity of the terminal's facilities, such as tank capacity and berthing slots. Parties interested in SLNG's terminal services may contact SLNG at email@example.com.

Singapore will continue to invest in energy infrastructure by building a second LNG Terminal. A few potential sites in eastern Singapore are being studied. Having a terminal in the east will geographically diversify our LNG import infrastructure, and support new industrial sites and power plantings.
