Probunkers Applies for Singapore LNG Bunker Licence
Greece-based Probunkers has applied for an LNG bunkering licence in Singapore, it said on December 16 in a statement.
The company said it had responded to the request for proposal (RFP) from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) for new licencees for the supply of LNG as a marine fuel in the port of Singapore. MPA had late October said it was looking to issue two additional LNG bunkering licences. FueLNG and Pavilion Energy are currently the only licensed LNG bunkering providers in the Port of Singapore.
“Our submission request for an LNG bunkering license for the Port of Singapore supports our quest to become the first independent global LNG bunker supplier. The LNG fuelled fleet is growing and we see an increasing interest from charterers and shipowners for LNG as a marine fuel,” Probunkers CEO, Alexander Prokopakis said.
The MPA launched the RFP on October 28 and the deadline for submission by interested parties was December 15. It intends to announce awards by February 2021.
