Nigeria LNG exports blocked over tax dispute


ABUJA, June 22 (Reuters) – Nigeria is being prevented from exporting liquefied natural gas (LNG) after a maritime security agency blocked and detained ships over a tax dispute, the state-LNG company (NLNG) said on Saturday.

The Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) on Friday stopped an LNG tanker from leaving the export terminal and prevented another from entering, NLNG said.

NIMASA also issued ship detention orders on Saturday for three LNG vessels, the state firm said. NIMASA did not immediately respond to request for comment.
