Air Liquide, through its wholly owned Singapore subsidiary, Singapore Oxygen Air Liquide Private Ltd (SOXAL), signed a long-term agreement to supply large quantities of nitrogen to Singapore LNG Corp Pte Ltd (SLNG).
SNLG manages Singapore’s first Liquefied Natural Gas Terminal. Under the terms of this agreement, SOXAL will invest in new pipeline infrastructure which extends its existing nitrogen network on Singapore’s Jurong Island to the LNG terminal on the island’s southern tip.
SOXAL currently owns and operates the largest nitrogen network in Singapore with six Air Separation Units interconnected through a common pipeline grid to offer enhanced reliability in its nitrogen supply to customers. The newly signed supply agreement will strengthen SOXAL’s position on Jurong Island and will position the company strategically to support the future growth of the oil-and-gas and petrochemical industry in that developing area through a highly competitive and reliable pipeline network.
Mr John Ng, CEO, Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd commented, “SLNG has chosen SOXAL as our nitrogen supply partner because we believe that SOXAL’s well-established production units and network will meet the high performance standards required by SLNG.”
Mr Kazuyuki Sakata, Managing Director of SOXAL, also said, “SOXAL is pleased to be the nitrogen supplier for SLNG and would like to thank SLNG for placing its trust in SOXAL for this important supply to the Terminal. This latest investment underscores our commitment to Singapore to deliver a safe, reliable and robust gas supply.”
