Liquefied natural gas (LNG) use by Japan’s power companies rose almost 14 percent in January when compared to the previous month.

The power companies consumed 5.49 million mt of LNG in January, as compared to 4.83 million mt in December, the preliminary data from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry showed.

January LNG purchases by the power companies were at 5.40 million mt, up 5.5 percent as compared to 5.12 million mt in December.

Japan’s ten independent regional electric power companies stopped publishing power output and demand numbers in April 2016 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.
