In 2021, Singapore imported 149.4 Mtoe of energy products. This is 1.4% lower than the preceding year, primarily due to the lower imports of Petroleum Products.
The majority of Singapore’s energy imports continued to be in the form of Petroleum Products (60.3%).
Natural Gas imports totalled 10.6 Mtoe in 2021 (i.e. 7.4 Mtoe of Piped Natural Gas and 3.4 Mtoe of Liquefied Natural Gas). The total amount of Natural Gas imports increased by 4.1% in 2021 compared to 2020. The increase was mainly attributed to higher amount of Pipeline Natural Gas (PNG) imported (i.e. 6.7 Mtoe and 7.4 Mtoe of PNG imported in 2020 and 2021 respectively).
Energy products exports fell by 0.9%, from 76.5 Mtoe in 2020 to 75.8 Mtoe in 2021. This decrease was largely due to lower levels of Petroleum Products (74.5 Mtoe) exports.
