ExxonMobil and Pavilion collaborate on LNG bunkering
3 October 2016 – ExxonMobil and Pavilion Energy are collaborating to develop solutions for liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering and other downstream developments in Singapore. With LNG growing in significance as part of the marine fuel mix, ExxonMobil said it is working toward providing vessel operators with access to a range of fuel options to suit their specific requirements, while helping them to comply with emission regulations.
ExxonMobil will support Pavilion Energy in establishing LNG bunkering procedures starting with truck to ship deliveries, as well as the safety and operational standards for LNG bunkering in Singapore. This co-operation supports the LNG bunkering initiative of the Maritime Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).
Pavilion Energy, which is backed by Singapore state holding company Temasek, is one of two companies awarded licences by MPA to develop LNG bunkering in Singapore starting in 2017. The second license was awarded jointly to Keppel Offshore & Marine and BG Group, which has subsequently been acquired by Shell.
Nancy Carlson, vice president of aviation and marine at ExxonMobil Fuels and Lubricants, said: “The collaboration with Pavilion Energy combines both companies’ expertise, and is one of the steps we are taking toward establishing ExxonMobil’s global LNG bunkering offer. Our 40-year heritage in LNG and marine insights, alongside Pavilion Energy’s dedicated approach, can help us to meet our vessel operators’ growing demand for integrated marine fuel solutions.”
