First Sustainable Aviation Fuel Cargo from Exxon Delivered to Changi Airport in Singapore
Exxon Mobil Corporation announced that it delivered the first shipment of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to Changi Airport as part of a one-year pilot programme to test the new aircraft fuel.
ExxonMobil said in a statement that the shipment contains a mixture of fossil-based refined jet fuel from its Singapore integrated refining and petrochemical plant and SAF supplied by Neste Oil.
The oil giant was chosen as the pilot programme's fuel supplier in February by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore, Singapore Airlines, and Temasek. The fuel was to be delivered to Singapore Airlines and Scoot flights from Changi Airport starting this month.
ExxonMobil intends to offer over 40,000 barrels per day of lower-emission fuels, including SAF, by 2025 and an additional 200,000 barrels per day by 2030.
Efforts to decarbonise transportation sectors, such as aviation, marine, and heavy-duty trucking, are anticipated to increase demand for fuels with lower emissions.
