26 January 2017, Sweetcrude, Lagos — As part of efforts to ensure adequate supply and availability of Liquefied Petroleum Gas, LPG also know as cooking gas, an additional 13,000 tonnes of the product will be discharged today in Lagos jetty through the intervention of Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas, NLNG
The additional 13, 000 tons translates into 1.40 million of 12.5 kg of cylinder size into the market.
Mr. Tony Okenedo who spoke on behalf of the NLNG External Relations Team in Lagos said: “As we speak, development on the NLNG effort to supply LPG to the market is that the vessel has loaded LPG in bonny, has turned around and is back in Lagos. The vessel is behind another vessel and once that vessel completes its process of discharge, the LPG vessel will enter into the discharged facility and offload another 13,000 tons.”
It would be recalled that Gaz Providence vessel had earlier successfully discharged 13,000 tonnes of LPG into the market.
The NLNG external relations team explained that the company will continue its effort to ensure supply and price stability of LPG to the market.
