The Suez Canal Authority (SCA)confirmed that the transit tolls for LNG carriers would remain steady in 2022.

This came in light of the continuous follow-up of the international LNG trade’s current situation. It is worth noting that the SCA has also reduced the rebate granted to liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers to 15% from 25%.

SCA Chairman Osama Rabea stated that the authority will increase the transit tolls by 6% for all types of ships passing through the canal during 2022, except for LNG ships and tourist cruise ships.
