The LBV, which is scheduled to be delivered around September to December 2020, will be the first to be operated in Japan. No financial details were disclosed.
The Singapore FueLNG LNG bunkering joint venture between Keppel Offshore & Marine and Shell Eastern Petroleum announced earlier this year that Keppel would build Southeast Asia’s first LBV for SGD50m ($36.7m).
The four companies jointly established CLS and Central LNG Marine Fuel Japan Corporation (CLMF) in May to launch the LNG Bunkering Business in the Chubu (central) region of Japan. The LBV will be owned and managed by CLS, and LNG will be supplied to end-users through CLMF.
