Shell and Pavilion Gas will start delivering liquefied natural gas to Singapore later this year, a news report said, citing the city-state’s trade minister.
The two companies were awarded contracts in October, joining BG Singapore Gas Marketing as approved LNG importers.
The contracts will last for three years or until their shipments reach 1 million tonnes a year, Reuters reported.
Singapore is moving to import LNG as contracts for natural gas supplied from Malaysia and Indonesia will expire in the early 2020s, the report said.
BG Singapore Gas Marketing became part of Shell when BG Group merged with the Anglo-Dutch oil major.
The new contract is for Shell’s Eastern Petroleum subsidiary.
Pavilion Gas is part of Singapore-based Pavilion Energy.
