Singapore to Use 3 Million Tons a Year of LNG by 2015

(Corrects year of Japanese LNG consumption in third paragraph.)

Singapore will consume as much as 3 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas by 2015, Steve Hill, BG Group Plc (BG/)’s vice president of global LNG and oil marketing, said at a conference in the Asian city-state.

The nation is constructing an LNG import terminal with a capacity of 9 million tons a year.

Japan may bring in 100 million tons a year of LNG by 2025, said Hill. The country imported a record 87.3 million last year, the finance ministry said today.
