Singapore relies completely on imports to meet its gas demand. This was historically done solely through pipeline imports from Malaysia and Indonesia. From 2013 Singapore started importing LNG in line with the government's growing concern over energy security and diversity. Current energy policy prevents piped gas contract extensions or the use of piped gas for new generation capacity. Consequently LNG demand is expected to largely replace piped gas contracts.However market conditions are fundamentally different today than when the import controls were introduced. Hence this necessitates the discussion on whether Singapore should extend its piped gas contracts. If they are extended what will be the impact on LNG demand and on Singapore's aspirations to become an LNG trading hub?
