The NLNG said on Thursday in a statement signed by its Manager, Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, Andy Odeh, “Our attention has been drawn to a report in a national newspaper regarding Nigeria LNG Limited’s response to a distress call by a trawler 45 kilometres South West of Bonny Fairway Buoy. “Claims in the report that NLNG failed to respond to a distress call are false and misleading. On receiving the distress call at around 2107hrs on February 6, 2019, NLNG responded by dispatching a long range security boat to the location. “On getting there, the crew of the long range boat found other sister vessels engaged in rescuing the crew of a distressed trawler, MV Orc IV. The boat returned to base after confirming that the trawler boat crew had been rescued by sister vessels.” The firm said it acted promptly in a similar incident that happened the following day at the same location, sending a tugboat with fire fighting capabilities and two security boats to put out a fire and rescue the crew of a fishing boat that had caught fire. It added, “In line with one of our core values of caring, we continue to exhibit care for people and the environment to enhance safety and sustainability through partnership with relevant agencies.”]]>
