The MT Sahara Gas, a newly built vessel owned by West Africa Gas Ltd, has completed its first shipment of LPG in Nigeria, according to Nigeria’s The Eagle.

The specialised cargo vessel supplied 7,000 tons of LPG from Bonny Island to Lagos in a bid to ease cooking gas supply bottlenecks and combat fraudulent sales of the fuel.

West Africa Gas Ltd also owns the MT Africa Gas, which has started shipping LPG across Ivory Coast, Togo and Ghana.
