We are currently participating in LNG projects in Australia, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, Oman, Russia, Indonesia, Equatorial Guinea, and the U.S.A. Through major projects such as Sakhalin II, we intend to ensure the stable long-term supply of LNG/natural gas while aiming to further expand our LNG/natural gas business, leveraging our network of relationships with gas-producing countries and project partners. We discovered large scale natural gas resources in offshore Mozambique, and are carrying out a study on the development of a new LNG project in the area. Additionally, we took the final investment decision and began construction of facilities for the Cameron project, an LNG export project based in Louisiana, U.S.A. We are also carrying out a study on development of the Browse gas and condensate field off Western Australia. We are also strengthening our LNG and natural gas sales capabilities in the global market and working on new value-added ways of commercializing natural gas in addition to conventional LNG.
