Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to conduct emission accounting for the crude oil tanker in the port of Singapore. It is a preliminary analysis to understand some of the emission patterns generated by this shipping segment. This is completed by using a bottom-up approach using Automatic Identification System data collected in the port. Singapore is a vital maritime hub and one of the world's most important ports. She has been named the world's leading maritime city for several years in a row, and she was recently crowned again in 2022. Singapore's port's key strengths are that it is a transhipment and bunkering hub, as well as a key location for related maritime services. This study on estimating crude oil tanker emissions in the Port of Singapore is useful because it will be interesting to see how emissions generated by crude oil tankers calling the Port of Singapore will change in the future as the country greens its economy through the Singapore Green Plan 2030. Furthermore in early 2022, the Ministry of Transport announced the Maritime Singapore Decarbonisation Blueprint 2050, which included measures specifically related to emissions in Singapore ports, as well as an investment of at least $300 million to reduce emissions in the maritime industry. Thus, the findings of this port emissions research study will be a very interesting and relevant data set for key decision-makers and industry players to understand the emission patterns generated by crude oil tankers in Singapore port.
