Japan Studies LNG Plant

Gazprom and Japan Far East Gas have completed pre-feasibility studies for the use of natural gas in the Vladivostok district and are progressing to an investment study for the construction of a liquefied gas plant, Interfax reported Monday.

Gazprom head Alexei Miller met with Ichiro Takahara, director of the Japanese Natural Resources and Energy Agency, in Moscow on Monday.

Japan is considered a possible market for gas from the Shtokman deposit in the Barents Sea, Gazprom head Alexei Miller has said. The first stage of that project will have a capacity of 7.5 million tons of LNG per year.
