Russia to Japan Gas Pipeline Proposed

Russia’s top natural gas producer Gazprom said on Thursday it was considering deliveries of gas to Japan via pipeline, and raised the prospect in a meeting with a Japanese parliamentary delegation in Moscow.

“The sides touched upon a possibility of working on a project for pipeline gas supplies from Russia to Japan,” Gazprom said in a statement.

Sakhalin-2, Gazprom’s far east consortium with Shell , Japan’s Mitsui <8031.T> and Mitsubishi Corp <8058.T>, has already been shipping liquefied natural gas to Japan and Russia has considered ways to increase fuels sales to its neighbour, where demand for non-nuclear energy increased in the wake of Fukushima disaster last year.
