Governor Walker discusses LNG with Marubeni officials

Governor Bill Walker held meetings discussing Alaska’s LNG potential with the chief executive of Marubeni Corporation, and with the governor of Kyoto Prefecture and former Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda.

This was his second day of high-level meetings discussing Alaska’s liquefied natural gas potential with executives in Japan.

Governor Walker signed a memorandum of understanding to formalize Alaska’s relationship with the prefecture of Kyoto, a statement from the governor’s cabinet reveals.

He will also deliver a keynote address at an LNG conference in Tokyo, and meet with the President and CEO of Korea Gas Corporation, the world’s largest corporate buyer of LNG.
