Singapore plans to build second LNG terminal

Singapore plans to build second LNG terminal
Singapore is planning a second LNG terminal even as its first one officially opens.

Speaking at the official opening of the Singapore LNG (SLNG) on Tuesday Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said it was studying sites in the east of the country for a second LNG terminal.

PM Lee cited restrictions to expanding the current SLNG facility, which started operations in May last year. Located to the west side of Singapore on Jurong Island the terminal can only be expanded to a total of seven tanks with a capacity of 15m tonnes per annum (mtpa).

The terminal currently has three tanks with a capacity 6mtpa with plans for a fourth tank to expand capacity to 9mtpa.
