Japan’s Inpex said on Wednesday that its Naoetsu LNG terminal in Niigata Prefecture received the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo from the giant Ichthys project in Australia.

To remind, the $40 billion Inpex-operated Ichthys LNG export project shipped the first ever LNG cargo last week.

The 182,000-cbm LNG vessel Pacific Breeze arrived on Wednesday 8:30am local time at the Naoetsu terminal, according to an Inpex statement.

The chilled fuel that Pacific Breeze delivered will be regasified and combined with natural gas produced from the Inpex-operated Minami-Nagaoka gas field.

The fuel will be then supplied to customers located along Inpex’s 1,500 kilometer-long natural gas trunk pipeline network stretching across the Kanto-Koshinetsu and Hokuriku regions.

The arrival of LNG produced from the Ichthys project at the Naoetsu terminal is a “significant milestone” for Inpex, as it organically links the company’s LNG development business overseas to its gas distribution network in Japan, the statement reads.
