Pavilion Energy Singapore1 and Total Marine Fuels Global Solutions (TMFGS), have signed a 10-year fully-termed agreement to jointly develop an LNG bunker supply chain in the port of Singapore. This agreement follows the Heads of Agreement inked by the two companies in June 2018. The cooperation includes the shared long-term use of the 12,000-m³ GTT Mark III Flex membrane LNG bunker vessel (LNGBV) newbuild that will allow each party to supply LNG bunker to its respective customers.
“Pavilion Energy is fully committed to leading to leading the maritime industry’s energy transition with LNG as a marine fuel – beginning in Singapore, our home base,” said Frédéric H. Barnaud, Group CEO of Pavilion Energy. “We are very pleased to be working with our strategic partners such as Total, to jointly develop robust LNG bunker logistics and supplies that are readily available for customers in Singapore and beyond.”
“We are very proud that the cooperation between Pavilion Energy and Total is paving the way towards the development of LNG as a marine fuel, especially in Singapore, the largest bunkering hub in the world,” said Jerôme Leprince-Ringuet, Managing Director of TMFGS. “With these agreements, we pursue our ambition to build a comprehensive network of supply for this clean marine fuel. It also underscores our commitment to offer our customers the best available and technologically proven solution to significantly reduce the environmental footprint of maritime transport.”
