According to Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO), its LNG receipt in fiscal year 2012 increased by 3.2% to 24,867,000 MT from a year ago. Meanwhile, its consumption rose by 3.6% to 23,707,000 MT from a year earlier. As a result of nuclear power generation coming to a stop, TEPCO raised both its receipt and consumption of LNG. However, the growth turned out to be limited due to its receiving capacity.|
In March, TEPCO received 2,124,000 MT, down 3.6% and consumed 2,113,000 MT, up 2.1% from a year before.
