Inpex Starts Feasibility Study on Extension of Gas Pipeline (Japan)

Inpex said it has commenced a feasibility study on the extension of “Shin Tokyo Line,” its existing natural gas trunk pipeline, in view of a steadily growing gas demand in the North Kanto Area, Japan.

“Shin Tokyo Line” is 213 km long from Joetsu City, Niigata Prefecture to Fujioka City, Gunma Prefecture.

The feasibility study focuses on the potential pipeline route and pipeline specifications to extend Shin Tokyo Line southward for approximately 16km from its current end Fujioka City, to reach Honjo City, Saitama Prefecture.

Based on the results of the feasibility study, the final investment decision is expected this year.
