The Petronas LNG Complex in Bintulu, Sarawak is operated by MLNG. The nine-train facility has a combined annual production capacity of approximately 30 MT. 

Hokkaido Electric shares the Ishikari LNG terminal with Hokkaido Gas. Hokkaido Gas owns the terminal and operates two storage tanks, with a capacity of 180,000cbm and 200,000cbm each. Hokkaido Electric has built a third 230,000cbm storage tank for its own use and the cargo delivered by the Puteri Delima will be used for the commissioning of the tank. The company is also constructing a 230,000cbm fourth tank, which should start operating in October 2020.
