Singapore's maritime regulator has awarded Lloyd's Register with a contract to develop standards and procedures for fueling ships with natural gas, the company said in a statement.

Lloyd's Register, which provides ship classification services, said it will "identify technical specifications, LNG bunkering procedures, and development of crew competency for LNG bunkering in the Port of Singapore."

The contract was awarded by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore.

Earlier this year, the MPA said licensing requirements for LNG bunker suppliers and craft operators will be ready for industry consultation by the end of this year.

Singapore, one of the world's largest hubs for bunkering, or the fueling of marine vessels, is pushing towards developing capabilities for LNG bunkering as the use of gas as a transportation fuel increases.
