July 15, 2002

On July 13, the LNG tanker Al Zubarah arrived at the LNG terminal in Chita City, Aichi Prefecture, with 60,000 tons of LNG (liquefied natural gas) from Qatar. This brought the cumulative total of LNG unloaded at the terminal to 100 million tons. It has taken 25 years since the first LNG shipment in September 1977 to reach the 100-million ton mark. During this period, 1,779 vessels have safely docked at the terminal without a single accident.
