Linde Gas Singapore (LGS) has inked a new tonnage contract with Oiltanking Singapore (OTS),
one of the world’s leading storage operators for oils, chemicals and gases, to supply nitrogen for
the next ten years.
With this new win, LGS will become OTS’ exclusive supplier of nitrogen gas. The agreement was
sealed in May 2012, and supply will commence in February 2013 when the customer’s existing
contract with its incumbent gas supplier expires.
Linde will invest EUR 1.7 million to install a new 3,500 Nm3/hr nitrogen compressor and construct
new pipeline infrastructure from LGS' Jurong Island plant to the customer’s facility, located about
2 km from our plant.
Seck Luan Lim, Country Head of Singapore said, “This is a major victory for Linde on two fronts. We have beat our competitor, who has been supplying to OTS for more than 12 years. More
significantly, this is a strategic win for LGS as OTS will be our first air gas pipeline customer,
paving the way forward for us to expand our footprint beyond HyCO into the supply of air gases
