Why and when did NLNG commence the supply of LPG into the Nigerian market?

NLNG commenced the supply of LPG to the Nigerian domestic market in 2007. This initiative started as part of NLNG’s commitment to contribute significantly to the stimulation of the domestic LPG sector and overcome gross shortage of the product at a time. The scheme commenced with the dedication of 150,000 Metric Tonnes Per Annum (mtpa) to the local market and with the first delivery to the Apapa jetty in December 2007. Since then, the NLNG domestic LPG scheme has enjoyed outstanding success with NLNG’s intervention leading to a significant reduction in the end user price of LPG in the Nigerian market, as well as guaranteeing supply to the market and the attendant stimulation of demand. This success has also led to the increase of the dedicated volume to 250,000 mtpa in 2013.??
