The Nigerian Association of Liquefied Petroleum Gas Marketers (NALPGAM) has said that the price of cooking gas would soon crash with the arrival of a vessel with 13,000 tonnes, Daily Trust reports.
The vessel is due to arrive Apapa terminal on Friday to discharge her cargo. Mr Bassey Essein, Executive Secretary of the association said that a vessel loaded with 13,000 tonnes from Bonny terminal, belonging to the Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG), was expected to berth.
According to him, it is expected that when the gas is discharged at the terminal, it will be sufficient to reduce the price of cooking gas nationwide. He also appealed to the Federal Government to intervene and ensure that the Nigerian LNG Ltd., supplied cooking gas at domestic rates rather than the current international price at which the company was selling to domestic consumers.
