Total Marine Fuels Gas Solutions (TMFGS) and Pavilion Energy Singapore have inked a 10-year agreement to develop LNG bunkering the Port of Singapore.

The agreement includes the shared long-term use of 12,000 cu m LNG bunker vessel (LNGBV). In February this year Pavilion chartered an LNGBV newbuilding from Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) which is currently being constructed at Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard in Singapore.

Under the agreement both parties will be able to use the bunker tanker for their customers.

“Pavilion Energy is fully committed to leading to leading the maritime industry’s energy transition with LNG as a marine fuel – beginning in Singapore, our home base,” said Frédéric H. Barnaud, group ceo of Pavilion Energy.

“We are very proud that the cooperation between Pavilion Energy and Total is paving the way towards the development of LNG as a marine fuel, especially in Singapore, the largest bunkering hub in the world," said Jerôme Leprince-Ringuet, managing director of TMFGS.

“With these agreements, we pursue our ambition to build a comprehensive network of supply for this clean marine fuel. It also underscores our commitment to offer our customers the best available and technologically proven solution to significantly reduce the environmental footprint of maritime transport."

TMFGS has chartered two LNGBV newbuildings from MOL for deployment in Rotterdam in 2020 and Marseille in 2021 supporting French shipowner CMA CGM, a pioneer in large containerships powered by LNG.
