The S$1.7 billion Singapore LNG Terminal, a key infrastructure development in Singapore’s energy diversification strategy, is now in operation. The first phase of development, comprising two 180,000 m3 LNG tanks, a jetty and regasification facilities was completed safely, on schedule and within budget.
Singapore LNG received its first shipment of LNG, for the commissioning of the terminal, on 27 March 2013. Then on 7 May 2013 the first commercial LNG cargo from BG Group was successfully off-loaded at the terminal.
At the stroke of midnight, the LNG was regasified and sent out through the terminal to the Singapore gas network. We played a key role in this project as PMC, providing expertise and leadership to both SLNG’s project management and Samsung C&T’s EPC team.
With the strong contribution from our team, the project was executed with no lost-time injuries and a total recordable injury rate of less than 0.24 per 200,000 manhours - a great achievement considering that more than 15 million manhours were expended on the project.
We also worked as PMC on the second phase, which increased the regasification capacity to 6 million tonnes per annum (MTPA), and were then awarded the PMC for Phase 3 expansion, including fourth tank and additional facilities for the potential future expansion of the terminal. This will take the terminal’s throughput capacity to at least 9 mtpa of LNG, further cementing the terminal’s critical role in Singapore’s energy diversification strategy.
The PMC team is involved in every phase of the project from contractor selection, engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning, and start-up.
“Phase 1 of this strategically important project has been a great success. The close working relationships and team spirit have undoubtedly contributed to the excellent safety record, and its on-budget and on-time performance. We will continue to work with the same collaborative team spirit to help make the next phase just as successful.”
