Chita LNG terminal receives 3,500th cargo

Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas jointly operated Chita LNG terminal in Chita City received its 3,500th LNG tanker, the Al Zubarah from Qatar.

About 38 years have passed since the Chita LNG terminal received its first LNG, imported from Indonesia in September 1977. Chubu Electric said in a statement that the Chita LNG terminal has operated without accident or incident in reaching the milestone of receiving 3,500 LNG tankers.

The total amount of LNG unloaded at the terminal has reached about 250 million tons.

Chubu Electric Power and Toho Gas import LNG from Qatar and Indonesia to use as fuel for power generation and as material for city gas, ensuring a stable supply of electricity and city gas.

Chita LNG terminal received about 8.4 million tons of LNG (128 tankers) in FY2014. It is one of the largest LNG terminals in Japan, Chubu Electric said.
