Japan Oil Ports Shut After Tsunami, Inchcape Shipping Says

March 14 (Bloomberg) -- Three Japanese oil ports and one terminal remained closed after being damaged during an 8.9-magnitude earthquake and ensuing tsunami last week, Inchcape Shipping Services said.

Sendai, Onahama and Kashima are closed while the Cosmo terminal at the port of Chiba is also still shut, Inchcape said in an e-mailed report today. The company got its information by speaking to port operators, spokesman Nick Elliott said by phone.

The ports of Akita, Niigata, Chiba (excluding the Cosmo facility), Kawasaki, Yokohama, Nagoya, Yokkaichi, Atsumi, Owase, Shimotsu, Sakai, Sakaide, Mizushima, Iwakuni, Tokuyama, Kanokawa, Kikuma, Namikata, Oita and Saganoseki are open.

Inchcape has offices in Tokyo, Yokahama, Osaka, Kobe and Imabari, according to its website. It is a global port agent, organizing shipping arrivals and departures.
