Gas Importer

Gas importers are entities permitted to import natural gas into Singapore. They must have a valid Gas Importer Licence issued by EMA before engaging in gas import activities.

A Gas Importer (LNG) Licence is required for importing liquefied natural gas (LNG). On 30 June 2014, EMA launched a two-stage Request for Proposal (RFP) to appoint up to two LNG importers to supply the next tranche of LNG for Singapore. The RFP closed on 30 Jun 2016. EMA has completed the evaluation and appointed Pavilion Gas Pte Ltd and Shell Eastern Trading (Pte) Ltd to be the second tranche LNG importers. They will each have exclusivity to market up to 1 Mtpa of LNG or for 3 years, whichever is earlier. The next tranche of LNG imports has commenced on 23 Oct 2017. This also marked the conclusion of the first exclusive franchise awarded to BG Singapore Gas Marketing (now known as Shell Gas Marketing Pte Ltd) which was subsequently acquired by Royal Dutch Shell.
