Singapore received its first shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) that came from Qatar, on a QMax carrier ship, at its first LNG terminal. Thus far Singapore has relied on piped natural gas from Indonesia and Malaysia for its LNG demand. The new LNG terminal at Jurong Island will import about 3 million tonnes of LNG a year. The S$2.1 billion LNG terminal was developed by Singapore LNG Corporation. Over 80 per cent of Singapore’s electricity generation is gas based, with about 18 per cent coming from fuel oil and the remainder from sources such as waste incineration.
