SINGAPORE, Oct 30 (Reuters) - Singapore is set to end a moratorium on new piped natural gas imports soon as robust initial demand for liquefied natural gas (LNG) has meant that most of the super-chilled fuel brought in via a new terminal has been taken up.

The city-state has prevented its four pipeline gas importers from signing new contracts until 2018, or when demand for LNG, shipped in by BG Group Plc, hits 3 million tonnes per year (tpy), whichever is earlier.
