Qatargas surpasses 2500 Japan LNG cargo deliveries
"Qatar places great value on its relationship with its clients in Japan, and we will work towards better and stronger relations,' chairman says.
Qatargas has delivered more than 2,500 LNG cargoes to its Japanese customers, chairman Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi has said.
At a recent annual reception hosted by Qatargas for its Japanese partners and customers in Tokyo, Al-Kaabi said, “(The year) 1997 was the beginning of our journey in Japan with Chubu Electric and the seven founding Japanese buyers. The friendship and commitment of Qatar Petroleum and Qatargas towards our partners remain just as strong as it was then – if not stronger.”
He added that “Qatar places great value on its relationship with its clients in Japan, and we will work towards better and stronger relations”.
Meanwhile, al-Kaabi, accompanied by a number of senior Qatar Petroleum and Qatargas officials, has also concluded a working visit to Japan, during which he held talks with major Japanese energy companies on enhancing existing cooperation.
Talks and discussions during the two-day visit focused on ways of boosting future cooperation between Japanese customers and partner companies, particularly in the LNG trade.
They included meetings with chairmen, presidents, and senior executives of Chubu Electric, Jera, Mitsui, Chiyoda Corporation, Idemitsu, Cosmo Oil, LNG Japan, Mitsui & Co., Marubeni Corporation, and Itohchu.
Meetings were also held with financial institutions such as Bank of Tokyo – Mitsubishi UFJ and Japan Bank for International Cooperation, utility companies such as Tokyo Electric (TEPCO), Kansai Electric, and Tohoku Electric; and other major shipping lines such as NYK Line, MOL, K Line and Iino.
