Leaders Meet in Singapore to Discuss LNG Trading

SINGAPORE – 18
September 2013 – Singapore, the country which is emerging as Asia’s LNG trading
hub[1],
will host industry decision makers at the 5th World LNG Series: Asia
Pacific Summit (LNG Asia) next
week to discuss the changing demand for LNG in Asia Pacific. Over 250 government
and commercial leaders from countries as diverse as Australia, China, France,
India, Japan, Mozambique, Singapore, UK and USA, will lead discussions about
what needs to happen to create a gas trading hub in Asia, as well as discuss
the LNG supply outlook.

Speakers from Singapore at the conference include Moon Ming
Seah, Group Chief Executive Officer of Pavilion Energy Pte Ltd and Neil
McGregor, Chief Executive Officer of Singapore LNG Corporation Pte Ltd.

Pavilion Energy, a company set up in April 2013 by Temasek
Holdings[2],
has an initial authorized capital of $1 billion to participate and invest in
various parts of the LNG value chain; to tap growing demand in Asia and focus
on liquefied natural gas. Pavilion Energy is a Gold sponsor of LNG Asia.

Singapore LNG Corporation (SLNG) operates the first liquid
natural gas (LNG) terminal in Asia at Jurong, capable of importing and
re-exporting LNG from multiple suppliers. Jurong Rock Caverns[3],
a $950 million underground storage facility for crude oil, condensates, naphtha
and gas-oil that lies 130 meters beneath the Banyan Basin, commenced operations
in May this year.

“LNG Asia is
the right partner for Singapore to build partner relationships with
international oil and gas companies”, says Pat Roberts, Associate Director of CWC
Group for their gas portfolio. “This conference is timely, driven by the fact
that we have unprecedented participation from a wide range of speakers and delegates
who are coming together to discuss what it will take to drive sustainable
growth in the industry. If you want to shape the future of LNG in Asia, it is
important to be a part of the discussions that will take place next week.”
