Tokyo Gas Signs Long-Term LNG Contract With New Sakhalin-2 Operator
08.30.2022 By Ella Keskin - NEWS

August 30, 2022 [ Reuters ] – Japan’s biggest city gas supplier Tokyo Gas Co Ltd has signed a long-term contract with a new Russian operator of Sakhalin-2 energy project to buy liquefied natural gas (LNG), a spokesperson for the Japanese company said on Tuesday.

 

The main conditions such as volume remained the same as the previous contract, he told Reuters, without elaborating.

The move follows JERA, Japan’s biggest power generator, which said last week that it had signed a deal with the new Sakhalin-2 operator to maintain long-term deliveries of LNG.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree in June taking charge of the project, creating a new legal entity to deal with for buyers and shareholders, which include Shell  and Japanese trading houses Mitsui & Co and Mitsubishi Corp.
