  • Conservation of biodiversity through control of ballast water discharged from LNG carriers

3-1 City Gas Production

3-1 City Gas Production

Storage Capacity of LNG Terminals
378.5 ML

By receiving LNG and constantly producing city gas, the Group contributes to energy security in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Our four LNG terminals at Negishi, Sodegaura, Ohgishima and Hitachi function as mutual backups for each another, ensuring uninterrupted city gas supplies even in the event of a power failure or other incidents.

Key Initiatives Contributing to the Sustainable Development of Society
  • Augmentation and development of LNG terminal storage capacity to ensure stable supply
  • Prevention of production problems due to natural disasters and other causes
  • Reduction of GHG emissions from city gas production, promotion of resource saving and recycling and conservation of biodiversity
