Japan utilities use more LNG in February

Japan’s ten regional electric power companies consumed 4.84 million tonnes of LNG in February, a rise of 1.3 percent compared to the same month in 2014.

The power companies bought 4.99 million tonnes of LNG in January, down 0.6 percent as compared to a year ago, data from the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan (FEPC) showed.

Total electricity generated and purchased across the ten companies in February dropped by 4.2% from a year earlier to 76.21 billion kWh, due principally to decreased heating demands caused by relatively higher temperatures in February than the previous year, FEPC said.
