Japan's JERA imports first LNG cargo shipped from Chevron's Wheatstone site

TOKYO (Reuters) — Japan’s JERA Co, the fuel-buying joint venture of Tokyo Electric Power and Chubu Electric Power, said it received the first LNG cargo shipped from Chevron’s Wheatstone project in Australia.

The tanker “Asia Venture,” carrying about 70,000 t of LNG, arrived on Sunday at Tokyo Electric Power’s Futtsu LNG terminal in Chiba prefecture on Tokyo Bay, said a spokesman for JERA, the world’s biggest LNG buyer, on Monday.

Chevron said last month that the Wheatstone LNG project, which started production in early October, shipped its first cargo to JERA.

JERA has contracts to buy 5.2 MMtpy of LNG from the Wheatstone project.

Wheatstone has two units, which at full capacity will supply 8.9 MMmt of LNG a year to customers in Asia. After the second train starts up in 2018, JERA will receive around six LNG cargoes per month from the project, a company official said.

The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.

During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
