In a bid to support LNG bunkering and breakbulk activities in the port, MPA Singapore announced the introduction of a new volumetric fee on LNG cargo operations by MPA-approved floating storage units and floating storage regasification units berthed at MPA-approved berths.

The move follows a previous Port Marine Circular (No. 28 of 2021) dated 1 July 2021 which informed the harbour craft and shipping community of the MPA’s new harbour craft port dues concession aiming to support the deployment of MPA-approved FSUs/FSRUs in Singapore for LNG bunkering and breakbulk activities.
