Japanese utilities’ LNG consumption in December rises

Japanese utilities' LNG consumption in December rises

Japan’s ten regional electric power companies consumed 5.37 million tonnes of LNG in December, a rise of 1.9% compared to 5.26 million tonnes the companies used in December of 2014.

The power companies bought 5.66 million tonnes of LNG in December, compared to 5.42 million tonnes a year ago, data from the Federation of Electric Power Companies of Japan (FEPC) showed.

Total electricity generated and purchased across the ten companies in December rose by 1.5% from a year earlier to 83.52 billion kWh, due principally to increased heating demands caused by relatively lower temperatures in December than the previous year.
