On January 1983, the 130,000 m3 Malaysian LNG carrier TENAGA SATU delivered its first cargo to the Tokyo Gas/Tokyo Electric Sodegaura receiving terminal, marking the inauguration of a new LNG trade route between Malaysia and Japan.

Since that date, the Malaysian/Japanese LNG import project has gradually been brought to its full capacity of 6 millions tons/year by four additional ships, the latest put in service on May 1986. Today (1988), the 5 ships operated between Bintulu and Tokyo by the Malaysian International Shipping Corporation Berhad have delivered more than 400 cargoes. The Malaysian liquefaction plant and loading terminal are located in Bintulu (Sarawak] and the receiving terminals of Sodegaura (Tokyo Gas - Tokyo Electric) and Higashi Ogishima (Tokyo Electric) in the Tokyo Bay. Figure 1 shows the location of the terminals and the route of trade, which is approximately 2,500 nautical miles.
