SLNG 10th Anniversary Gala Dinner
Emcee Singapore: Charmaine hosted a remarkable celebration for SLNG’s 10th-anniversary dinner, which was attended by many distinguished guests, including Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Finance, Lawrence Wong, and Minister for Manpower and 2nd Minister for Trade and Industry, Dr. Tan See Leng.
The celebration kicked off with a captivating drone performance, a collaboration between the Energy Market Authority and SLNG. This performance effectively showcased the convergence of technology and creativity to illustrate the energy industry’s crucial role in advancing the transition towards a net-zero world.
In his speech, Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong made a significant announcement regarding the construction of a new liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal by the end of the decade. This new terminal will substantially increase the supply of LNG, ensuring that power plants in Singapore can generate electricity even when piped gas from neighboring countries is not available.
The second terminal, operated by SLNG, will have a throughput of up to five million tonnes per annum (mtpa), about half of the existing terminal’s 9.6 mtpa capacity. There is also consideration of using a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) for the new terminal. An FSRU is a ship with onboard facilities to convert LNG into its gaseous form, which will then be piped onshore to Singapore’s gas grid.
Emcee Singapore Charmaine invited several dignitaries to participate in significant moments during the event. Deputy Prime Minister Lawrence Wong signed the foreword of the 10th Anniversary commemorative coffee table book, which contains valuable information and insights about SLNG’s journey over the past decade.
In addition to this, SLNG’s CEO, Mr. Tan Soo Koong, presented a painting created by artist Raymond Lau, who has Tourette Syndrome, to DPM Lawrence Wong. This gesture underlined SLNG’s commitment to supporting worthy community causes. The painting, created in collaboration with ART:DIS, depicted the SLNG Terminal, highlighting its critical role in Singapore’s energy security and the energy transition.
The audience was treated to a light painting that narrated the transformation of the SLNG Terminal from a concept to a reality, emphasizing its pivotal role in catalyzing new possibilities in the energy transition and bolstering the nation’s energy security.
The event was a resounding success in celebrating SLNG’s achievements and its contributions to Singapore’s energy landscape while highlighting its commitment to the energy transition towards a net-zero world.
