Nanohana Pipeline completes construction
Published by Sara Simper,
Keiyo Gas Co., Ltd. (Keiyo Gas), Otaki Gas Co., Ltd. (Otaki Gas), JERA Co., Inc. (JERA), TEPCO Energy Partner, Inc. (TEPCO EP), and Nanohana Pipeline K.K. (Nanohana Pipeline) has held a ceremony to mark completion of the Nanohana Pipeline (NP), a pipeline for transporting natural gas.
The NP is a high-pressure trunk line whose construction by Nanohana Pipeline – established by Keiyo Gas and Otaki Gas – began in 2018. The NP runs approximately 31 km from JERA's Futtsu LNG terminal to the Anegasaki thermal power plant in Chiba Prefecture and will begin operating this June.
To ensure stable, efficient facility operation, JERA will assume operation of the NP from Nanohana Pipeline after launch and integrate its operations with those of JERA’s own power generation pipelines. Nanohana Pipeline will remain owner of the NP. Keiyo Gas, Otaki Gas, and TEPCO EP will use this pipeline to promote expanded use of natural gas.
With completion of the NP, the five companies will contribute to the stable supply of natural gas while living up to the trust and expectations of customers and local communities.
