Country Analysis Brief Overview

  • Singapore's strategic location between the Indian and Pacific Oceans has allowed it to become one of Asia's major petrochemical and refining hubs.
  • Singapore has world-class refining, storage, and distribution infrastructure. However, the country has no domestic oil reserves and must import all its crude oil.
  • Singapore has a crude refining capacity of just under 1.4 million bbl/d. Jurong Island is the center of Singapore's petrochemical industry. Many major international energy companies operate retail networks in the area.
  • Singapore's government promotes the use of natural gas. Malaysia and Indonesia currently supply all of the country's natural gas. The government is building a terminal to import liquefied natural gas and diversify its supply.
  • Natural gas fuels almost 80 percent of Singapore's electricity generation.
