The Nigeria Liquefied Natural Gas (NLNG) informed the public last week that the recent delays to vessel discharges at the receiving facilities in Apapa, Lagos which are multi-use terminals with berthing priority accorded to vessels discharging other oil products (petrol, dual purpose kerosene and diesel), had also led to a temporary supply disruption over the last two to three weeks.
