Integrated Gas & New Energies

Liquified Natural Gas

Japan has imported liquefied natural gas (LNG) since the 1969 and is the world's largest single market for LNG. It imported 77mt in 2019, about 20% of globally traded LNG (359mt).

Shell has been a leading LNG provider to the country, both directly and through joint venture projects, for nearly 50 years.  Shell works with a range of Japanese partners around the globe across its Upstream and Integrated Gas businesses.

Gas and LNG will continue to play a vital role globally and in Japan long into the future, in power generation, residential consumption and industrial use, as well as LNG powering heavy transport to power ships, trucks and busses, replacing diesel and fuel oil bringing environmental and economic benefits, and complementing renewable energies like wind and solar.

We want to work with Japanese LNG customers and government, who has been the front runner of the LNG industry, to further pursue how gas can contribute to a lower carbon energy future.


New Energies

Shell believes in the need for society as a whole to address the climate change. We think a long-term goal for the world to achieve net-zero emissions is challenging but feasible.

Successful transformation of the global economy will require much innovation, and unprecedented collaboration. It will also require solution-oriented policies to stimulate commercial and consumer opportunities.

Shell acknowledges Japan’s role as a leader in developing a hydrogen economy and understands that hydrogen is positioned to become increasingly core to progressing in line with its 2050 climate ambition.

Shell also sees hydrogen has an important role in the energy transition as both a high-density zero-emission energy carrier and as a storage medium. Shell, Toyota, Honda along with other companies launched Hydrogen Council in 2017, and we also work with Japanese companies on hydrogen. I

We look forward to broadening our relationships and cooperation with our Japanese partners to also include New Energies business developments and investments such as offshore wind.
