LR to support Singapore's development of LNG bunkering

Classification society Lloyd's Register (LR) has inked a contract with Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) to develop operational procedures and technical standards required to develop LNG bunkering capabilities in Singapore port.

The contracted job scope for LR includes identifying technical specifications, LNG bunkering procedures and developing crew competency for LNG bunkering in Singapore.

“We have assembled a global team experienced in addressing the requirements and in identifying what needs to be done to really address safety and operational issues to make safe LNG bunkering possible,” said Ng Kean Seng, marine country manager for LR in Singapore.

Much of LR's experience is from decades of LNG carrier classification leadership and understanding ship-to-ship (STS) transfer of LNG.
