Jurong Island

Jurong Island is at the heart of Singapore’s energy and chemicals industry. It is home to almost 100 leading global petroleum, petrochemicals and specialty chemicals companies.

Jurong Island boasts of a rich history formed from the amalgamation of seven small islands into a world-class chemicals hub.

With its dedicated "plug and play" infrastructure, Jurong Island enables companies to enjoy cost savings through shared third-party utilities and services, and at the same time build synergy through product integration.

The Island is getting ready for the future with the Jurong Island Version 2.0 (JIv2.0) initiative. Being the centrepiece of Singapore’s global positioning as an integrated chemicals hub, the Island hosts many world-class chemical companies, amounting about $42 billion in investments. As Singapore gears itself for the increasing global competition, JIv2.0 is set to transform Singapore’s petrochemicals hub with future-ready solutions.

This initiative adopts a “whole-of-government” effort to enhance Jurong Island’s competitiveness as well as sustainability by strengthening robustness of the current system, achieving a higher level of resource optimisation, and developing industrial optionality. JIv2.0 encompasses a thorough review of five core areas, namely energy, logistics and transportation, feedstock options, environment and water.

Companies on Jurong Island currently enjoy a web of mutually-beneficial partnerships in a “plug and play” environment. With JIv2.0 in place, they can look forward to innovative system level solutions that will create further value for them.

Upcoming Industry Briefing Sessions in April 2014

    The Safety and Risk Management Centre (SRMC) is a new inter-agency centre set up to better coordinate and integrate efforts related to risk assessment, safety management and emergency preparedness. This centre brings together both the safety regulatory authorities (SCDF, NEA and MOM) as well as the economic agencies (JTC and EDB).
    One of SRMC’s initiatives is to assist regulatory authorities in the review of existing Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) guidelines which concern industries handling bulk hazardous and flammable materials in fixed installations, pipelines and for road transportation. As part of this Guideline review, SRMC will be conducting industry-wide consultation to seek industry’s feedback on proposed changes to the existing QRA guidelines.
    SRMC has planned a series of industry briefing sessions to share about its new role as well as provide further details on the consultation process for the Guideline review. If you wish to attend any of the briefing sessions shown below, pls RSVP your attendance (with your name, company, contact number, and the session that you wish to attend) by emailing any one of the SRMC officers at the contacts indicated below no later than 17 April 2014.
