Contributing to ensuring the stability of energy resources in Japan

After the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 2011, Japan's energy sources were fewer, and a reliable source of natural gas became an important policy in Japan. In 2014, the Cabinet decided on the "Basic Energy Plan," and promoted diversified LNG supply sources.

Meanwhile, in the United States shale gas mining increased as part of the "shale gas revolution". The production of natural gas in the United States greatly expanded, and LNG imports virtually stopped.

The Freeport LNG project effectively utilizes this American LNG import terminal, which is located on Kantana Island near Freeport, Texas, USA. It will be converted to an export terminal with a newly established three trains of LNG liquefaction facilities, with an annual production of more than 13.9 million tons. Osaka Gas Co., Ltd. and Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc., which are Japanese utility companies, will import this liquefied natural gas from this project. This Freeport LNG project is the project that will export LNG to Japan based on long-term contracts with an American energy company.

Through the engineering, procurement and construction work of LNG liquefaction facilities, Chiyoda will contribute to ensuring the stability of Japan's energy resources, and to the steady execution of Japan's energy policy.
