Piped Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas
About 95 per cent of Singapore’s
electricity is currently generated using natural gas, up from just 26 per cent
back in 2001, when oil was the preferred fuel.
As Singapore’s energy market was
liberalised, many power generation companies turned to more efficient gas
turbines. Refineries and petrochemical companies also now use natural gas
for their operations.
Traditionally, most of Singapore’s supply
of natural gas come from pipelines from Indonesia and Malaysia.
With the liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal that commenced operations on 7 May 2013, LNG has started to play a bigger part in power generation.
LNG is readily available and expands Singapore’s fuel options for its energy requirements.
