FEPC: Japanese utilities use less LNG in June

LNG use by Japan’s ten independent regional electric power companies dropped 8 percent in June, as compared to the same month a year before.

The companies consumed 4.16 million mt of the chilled gas in June, according to data from the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan (FEPC).

The 10 utilities bought 4.50 million mt of LNG in June, down 6.1 percent from the same month last year.

Total electricity generated and purchased across the ten companies declined by 3.7% from a year earlier to 67.22 billion kWh, FEPC said.

Nuclear power plants in Japan remained shut down in June resulting in no electricity production at all.
