Mitsubishi Corporation

Energy Business Group : Energy Resources Division A/B

We, the Energy Resources Division A/B, are engaged in upstream business (exploration, development & production) of crude oil/natural gas and liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects in various areas around the world. The goals of the business are to improve energy security and help to provide an energy supply that meets customer needs.

In 1969, when LNG was first imported to Japan from Alaska, MC primarily acted as an import agent for the Japanese market. Since then, we have been involved in a multitude of projects and a variety of operations, including production, transportation and trading of LNG in areas such as Brunei, Malaysia, Australia, Oman, Indonesia and Russia, in addition to role as import agent for Japanese customers. We have also been engaged in upstream business (exploration, development & production) for the crude oil and the natural gas in various regions.


Leveraging our past LNG business experience cultivated over almost half a century, we are engaged in a variety of new initiatives to achieve further growth going forward. These include participation as a liquefaction project operator in Indonesia (the Donggi-Senoro Project), development and production of shale gas in Canada, and a project to export LNG from the U.S and its marketing through our trading subsidiary in Singapore. We are also engaged in upstream business jointly with MC affiliate, Mitsubishi Corporation Exploration Co.,Ltd. Our strategy is to further expand the oil and gas reserves and to increase the production level while we optimize the portfolio of owned assets.
