Upon completion, this terminal will have a storage capacity of 360,000 kiloliters of LNG, a volume equivalent to the city gas consumption of 630,000 house holds, or 70% of all households in Niigata Prefecture. Once its operations has started, the terminal will receive LNG from overseas projects in which INPEX is involved, including the Ichthys and Abadi LNG projects. The completion of this terminal will raise our capacity and our ability to provide a stable supply of natural gas. By organically connecting our overseas LNG Projects with our natural gas supply infrastructure in Japan, it will significantly contribute to a stable gas supply. T Naoetsu LNG Terminal will start full operation in early 2014, and gas supply through Toyama Line will com mence at optinum use at the end of 2014. With the completion of these facilities, a more stable supply system will be in place, allowing our domestic gas supply infrastructure for the abundant natural gas resources we have developed in Japan and overseas. Establishing a Gas Supply Chain to Secure a Stable Natural Gas Supply System over the Long Term Gas supply chain: The series of processes of natural gas business, from upstream to downstream Gas Supply Chain Part3
