Tokyo Gas receives first QCLNG shipment
Japan’s Tokyo Gas informed it has received a shipment of liquefied natural gas produced by the Queensland Curtis LNG project, operated by BG Group, at the Sodegaura terminal in Chiba Prefecture.
This is the first delivery to Japan of LNG derived from unconventional natural gas sources under a long-term supply contract, Tokyo gas said in a statement.
Tokyo Gas concluded an LNG sale and purchase agreement and an agreement regarding participation with BG in March 2011.
The delivery of approximately 70,000 tons of LNG is enough to meet the annual city gas consumption needs of some 220,000 average households.
This is the third delivery of LNG from projects in which Tokyo Gas has secured participation rights, following on the Darwin LNG project and the Pluto LNG project.
With this delivery, Tokyo Gas now receives LNG from 11 projects in five countries, according to the statement.
