Liquefied natural gas (LNG) use by Japan’s power companies rose 10.9 percent in November when compared to the previous month.

The power companies consumed 4.56 million mt of LNG in November, as compared to 4.12 million mt in October, the preliminary data from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry showed.

October purchases by the ten utilities were at 4.97 million mt of LNG, up 13 percent as compared to 4.39 million mt in October.

Japan’s ten independent regional electric power companies stopped publishing power output and demand numbers in April to ensure fair competition after the liberalisation of the retail power market.

Currently, METI’s data is the only official data available on the monthly power statistics. The ministry surveys hundreds of companies that are in the power business.
