The Gorgon LNG project can produce an annual 15.6 million tons of LNG. Tokyo Gas concluded a LNG sale and purchase agreement and an agreement regarding participation with Chevron in September 2009.

The delivery of approximately 70,000 tons of LNG is enough to meet the annual city gas consumption needs of some 220,000 average households.

This is the fourth delivery of LNG from projects in which Tokyo Gas has secured participation rights, following on the Darwin LNG project, the Pluto LNG project and the Queensland Curtis LNG project. With this delivery, Tokyo Gas now receives LNG from 12 projects in five countries.
