Singapore gas giant Pavillion has imported its first LNG shipment for domestic use in the country's industrial sector as it seeks to develop its activities in Singapore and Asia.

Bahrain said on Sunday it had received a shipment of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on Saturday, which was delivered by Qatargas under an immediate contract, and was transported by the Qatari carrier "Al Areeq" with a capacity of 260,000 cubic meters.

The shipment will be re-converted into natural gas and delivered to Pavillion customers in Singapore's natural gas market, it said.

"Our customers in Singapore will have a portfolio of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and natural gas transported through pipelines from Qatar, Indonesia, the United States and international markets," said Fredrick Barno, the chief executive officer of Pelephone Energy.
