Mr Chua Kheng Wee Louis asked the Minister for Trade and Industry following the recent renewal of a five-year gas supply contract with Indonesia (a) when are Singapore’s remaining gas supply contracts with Malaysia and Indonesia expected to expire; and (b) whether piped natural gas is still expected to feature in Singapore’s energy mix by 2030.
Mr Gan Kim Yong: Singapore imports Piped Natural Gas (PNG) from Malaysia and Indonesia through PNG importers. Gas supply contracts are negotiated by PNG importers on a commercial basis. We are unable to divulge the specifics of these contracts, including their expiry dates, as these are commercially sensitive.
Even as we seek to decarbonise our power sector, natural gas will continue to play an important role in the energy transition and feature in Singapore’s 2030 energy mix. To safeguard our energy security, Singapore will continue to ensure that our energy sources, including our natural gas supplies, are well diversified. For example, since 2013, we have supplemented our PNG supply with Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), which allows us to import gas from further afield.
