 The first Singapore Technical Reference (TR) 56 for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Bunkering was launched by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), SPRING Singapore and the Standards Development Organisation @ Singapore Chemical Industry Council (SDO@SCIC).  

This standard has been developed to provide a safe, efficient, sustainable and transparent technical framework for conducting LNG bunkering operations in Singapore, thereby offering greater assurance to local and international LNG bunker buyers and suppliers.
 
Over the past three decades, Singapore has established itself as the world’s top bunkering port. This has been supported by a strong quality and standards ecosystem and tools such as standards and accreditation schemes incorporated into Singapore’s regulations to build trust and confidence in the sector, MPA said.
 
The Singapore government has been working closely with industry players to advance the development of Singapore as a leading LNG bunkering and gas trading hub. A robust LNG bunkering sector in Singapore will also unlock new business opportunities in related services such as LNG trading and storage.
 
MPA’s LNG bunkering pilot program commenced early this year and will utilize TR 56 to guide the implementation of operational protocols by licensed LNG bunkering suppliers.
