South Korea’s Kogas, the world’s second-largest corporate buyer of LNG, reported a 2.4 percent decrease in its domestic natural gas sales in July.

Kogas said in a filing to the stock exchange on Thursday it sold 2.13 million mt of LNG equivalent last month, as compared to 2.18 million mt in July 2016.

Sales in the power generation sector dropped 1.9 percent to 1.27 million mt while city gas sales reached 0.86 million mt, down 1.3 percent on year, the filing shows.

Kogas operates in total 74 LNG storage tanks in South Korea and overseas. It imports about 96 percent of Korea’s LNG demand via its four terminals, namely Incheon, Pyeongtaek, Tongyeong and Samcheok.
