Ras Laffan LNG Project

ITOCHU Corporation is a shareholder of Ras Laffan LNG Co. Ltd. (RasGas), together with Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil and LNG Japan Corporation.

RasGas started delivering LNG to Korea Gas Corporation (KOGAS) in August 1999 pursuant to a Sale and Purchase Agreement signed in October 1995 (and amended in June 1997). As construction of the RasGas second train was completed in March 2000, RasGas can now deliver around 4.8 million LNG to KOGAS each year.

Based on the giant gas reserve of North Field, RasGas continues to use its best endeavors to satisfy its LNG customers around the world.
