The operation’s are expected to begin in 2018, Nikkei reports.
Natural gas from the terminal will be used to feed the rising domestic demand and natural gas-fired power plants.
The import terminal will be run by a joint venture created by Tokyo Gas and Pertamina with Mitsui and Japan Bank for International Cooperation expected to take a stake, according to the report.
