The management of NLNG Ship Management Limited, NSML, Nigeria’s liquefied natural gas shipping arm, NLNG, has given reason to list their vessels on the Bermuda Register of Ships rather than the Nigerian Register of Ships.

Ahmed said that none of the NLNG-NSML vessels have a Nigerian flag as the acquisition of the vessels was made through international financing, adding that there were also conditions attached to the financing of these acquisitions.

The head of NSML explained that the flagging or registration of vessels in Nigeria is the wish of the shipping company, but the regulation and other factors for it to work in Nigeria must be in place so they must also be accepted internationally.

According to him, the funders insisted that ships must be flagged on an internationally accepted Vessel Registry recognized by the Lloyds flag status.

He stated: ” There is a reason for not having these vessels registered in Nigeria and it is because the finances of these vessels give a condition and part of the condition is to ensure that these vessels are flagged in the internationally recognized Lloyds ship registers.

” The sailors who will man the vessels must have training at an international level and from maritime institutions whose certificate is also accepted worldwide.

‘We are collaborating with the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Security Agency, NIMASA, to create and develop the capacity of the regulatory agency in Nigeria to ensure that your Registration is recognized and accepted; it is a work in progress.

” The most important thing for shipping companies is that their vessels are accepted wherever they go.

” Flagging ships in Nigeria is a wish, it is a goal, it is a national goal and we at NMSL are happy to identify it, but it requires a lot of work, it requires all hands to be on deck to ensure that we work together to build. that agency where the Nigerian flag will be accepted internationally.

‘We are working together with all stakeholders to make sure we really achieve that goal. It is a process that has started and we believe that with the current NIMASA administration, we have started discussions and a body has been established on the Nigerian flag and we are contributing to that. ”
