Monitor Systems Singapore (Asia Pacific)
Oil Hub in Asia: The oil and gas industry has been an integral part of Singapore’s economy, ever since oil trading activities started in 1891. Today, Singapore is the undisputed 'oil hub in Asia' and is one of the world’s top three export refining centres. The oil industry in Singapore is accountable for part of the country's economy, exporting approximately 68M tonnes of oil.
Jurong Island: is an artificial island (of 12 sq. miles) located to the southwest of the main island of Singapore, off Jurong Industrial Estate. It was formed from the amalgamation of seven offshore islands. Land reclamation on Jurong Island was completed on September 2009, twenty years earlier than scheduled. The island Pulau Buaya was joined to Jurong Island via land reclamation in 2010.
The Government of Singapore took the opportunity to grow the oil and gas industry as a choice that would significantly produce economic growth. This was proven by the success of starting off the oil industries in the 1970s.
Jurong Island is where most of the country's oil activities take place in Singapore. Today, Jurong Island is home to more than 90 oil companies including LANXESS, Afton Chemical, BASF, BP, Celanese, Evonik, ExxonMobil, DuPont, Mitsui Chemicals, Chevron Oronite, Shell, Singapore Petroleum Company and Sumitomo Chemical.
On average, Singapore produces approximately 20,000 barrels of crude oil every day. The government-owned Singapore National Oil Corporation (SNOC) is in charge of the governance of the country's oil and gas industry.
Infrastructure: Singapore has not yet experienced supply disruption of oil. Singapore has its own reserves of oil, in case of a crisis. Singapore offers extensive oil storage facilities on Jurong Island, its integrated energy and chemical hub, to facilitate trade and manufacturing activities. Jurong Rock Cavern, the Island's oil storage facility is a massive underground facility offering 1.47M cubic metres of space for the storage of crude oil and condensates. Singapore has also embarking on its first receiving terminal for liquefied natural gas, in its drive to diversify its energy sourcese. Such innovation in infrastructure solutions are crucial in ensuring that the energy industry continues to grow and remain competitive.
