28 Dec 2021, Bonny

The Tugs are leased and NLNG has been subsidizing the Towage cost up till now, the primary objective of this review is to recover actual cost of the service, as per the international practice. Therefore, the new rates of the Marine Tugs used to provide this service would now be $599/Hour/Per Tug. Please advise the FOB buyers of this change in rate which has commenced and advise your finance department for compliance. ++++++ Source: NLNG NSML/NST/21/12/01 For information about operations in Nigeria, contact GAC Nigeria at nigeria@gac.com
