Inpex starts up Naoetsu LNG terminal

Inpex Corp. said its Naoetsu LNG terminal in Joetsu City, Japan, began operations ahead of schedule on Dec. 1.

The main facilities include two above-ground LNG tanks and a berth for unloading a 210,000 cu m LNG tanker. The terminal’s capacity to receive and regas LNG is 1.5 million tonnes/year.

Inpex made the final investment decision to construct the terminal in 2008, and began construction in 2009. Commissioning work began in August for full-scale commercial operations, which had been scheduled for January 2014 (OGJ Online, Aug. 27, 2013).
