Petronas, Tiger Gas collaborate on LNG bunkering
Petronas has inaugurated the LNG bunkering business with partner Tiger Gas following the completion of the maiden ship-to-ship LNG bunkering operation of approximately 500 metric tons of LNG for the latter’s Tiger Maanshan dual-fuel deck cargo ship, it said on March 8.
Tiger Gas has become the first Chinese customer of Petronas LNG bunkering business. The partnership between the companies began in 2020 when they signed a sale and purchase agreement to supply the Chinese market with LNG via ISO tanks. Petronas delivered the first cargo in April 2021.
The National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited (NGC) NGC’s HSSE strategy is reflective and supportive of the organisational vision to become a leader in the global energy business.
“Today, offshore ship-to-ship LNG bunkering has greatly shortened the turnaround of LNG carrier vessels, laying a solid foundation for a more efficient and greener LNG supply chain. In the future, Tiger Gas will continue to work together with Petronas to facilitate the energy transition,” Tiger Group chairman Gerry Wang said.
Petronas said it will work with its Chinese partners and create a green and sustainable future together.
