Main activities

In addition to sourcing gas from existing large-scale LNG projects and acquiring participating interests, we are diversifying and expanding our sources and upstream projects overseas through involvement in unconventional gas like shale gas and small- and medium-scale LNG projects. At the same time, we are leveraging the Group’s technologies and expertise in the total energy business to develop energy infrastructure and energy solutions for customers who are expanding overseas (especially in Southeast Asia and North America). By developing LNG value chains overseas as well as in Japan, we seek to contribute to both the flexible procurement of LNG for Japan and stable supplies of energy in the countries of these regions.
