Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. (President: Norio Ichino) saw its third LNG tank enter operation today at Ohgishima Terminal in Tsurumi-ku, Yokohama.

The tank is a completely underground LNG in-ground tank with a capacity of 200,000 kiloliters. This makes it the world’s largest, and takes total LNG storage capacity at Ohgishima combined with the other two tanks to 600,000 kiloliters.

The tank’s entry into operation completes the two phases of construction work undertaken at Ohgishima Terminal since 1993.

Ohgishima Terminal was built to supply city gas to the western metropolitan area around Kanagawa Prefecture, where high growth in city gas demand is forecast, and came on stream in October 1998. The completion of the second phase of construction at the terminal further reinforces the already stable supply structure formed by the loop of three terminals at Sodegaura, Negishi, and Ohgishima.

Construction work combined the LNG technology and know-how built up by Tokyo Gas over more than 30 years with cutting-edge technology to provide the most efficient facilities possible.
