The Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG) said it has started the supply of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), commonly called cooking gas to Lagos to ease its shortage and attendant high prices.
The firm in a statement endorsed by its General Manager, External Relations, Kudo Eresia-Eke said NLNG’s LPG vessel successfully discharged 13,000 tonnes of LPG to Lagos jetty at the weekend. He added that the vessel is scheduled to return to NLNG’s facility in Bonny to reload the product.
“NLNG continues its efforts to ensure adequate supply and price stability to the market,” he added. Nigeria LNG is the sole local supplier of the cooking gas to the domestic market. LPG marketers complement such supply with imported LPG from the neigbouring countries such as Niger Republic.
