Chiyoda Corporation, Japan’s leading engineering and construction firm, today announces that Chiyoda has been awarded an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract by Tokyo Gas Engineering Co., Ltd. for Hitachi LNG Terminal in Ibaraki port, Hitachi district, Hitachi city, Ibaraki prefecture. Tokyo Gas Co., Ltd. is the owner to construct this Terminal.


Scope of Work : EPC work for the Hitachi LNG Terminal FacilitiesContract Amount : Not disclosedConstruction Site : Hitachi city, Ibaraki prefectureSchedule : Site work will start in FY 2013, and operation will start in FY 2015.Chiyoda has been involved in the construction of all Tokyo Gas’s LNG terminals, including Negishi, Sodegaura and Ougishima, since the first LNG terminal in Japan started operation in 1969.


Chiyoda has also completed over half of the 30 or more LNG terminals in Japan, and is constructing three further large LNG terminals in addition to this awarded project.
