Milestone Unlocked: Eastern Pacific Shipping Completes 200th STS LNG Bunkering Operation


Singapore-based ship management company Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) has completed its ship-to-ship (STS) 200th liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation.

Bunkering Operation 

As informed, the bunkering operation involved EPS-managed pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) CMA CGM Daytona. The 700 CEU ship received 930 cubic meters of LNG from Pavilion Energy’s bunker vessel LBV Brassavola. According to EPS, this was the first time the ship underwent its bunkering operations in Singapore.

To date, EPS has received 1,159,536 cubic meters of LNG, a significant milestone since its first bunkering operations in 2020. Just three months ago, the company celebrated its 150th bunkering with 15,000 TEU dual fuel containership CMA CGM Bali receiving LNG at Yangshan, Shanghai.

“We continue to stay committed to decarbonizing the shipping industry, leading the green transformation,” the company noted.

Decarbonization Efforts 

As part of its decarbonization efforts, Eastern Pacific Shipping recently signed contracts with subsidiaries of China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) in Shanghai for a total of six new environmentally friendly vessels. The first deal covers the construction of four 210,000 dwt ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers.

The second contract covers two 111,000 dwt LNG dual-fuel LR2 oil tankers that will be constructed at CSSC Guangzhou Shipbuilding International.
