A vessel chartered by the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas Limited (NLNG) and laden with 13,126.6 metric tons of cooking gas or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will today berth in Lagos for discharge in continuation of the firm’s efforts to ease scarcity and reduce the price of the commodity that is currently between N5,000 and N6,000 for a 12.5kg cylinder depending on the area of purchase.

The General Manager, External Relations, Kudo Eresia-Eke said the vessel Gaz Providence, as at yesterday was at Lagos offshore, alongside the NOJ jetty waiting for berth to clear before proceeding to discharge and will certainly berth today.

Gaz Providence had discharged the same volume of LPG in the second week of this month. According to him, 13,000 metric tons of LPG can fill 1,040 12.5kg cylinders.
