IINO KAIUN KAISHA | Logistics Company

Financial results for the nine months ending December 31 2011 will be released on 31st January, 2012.

The Iino Kaiun Group transports liquefied gases such as LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) and LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) aboard a fleet of large gas tankers, the majority fitted with special equipment such as refrigerated tanks and compressors.

The Iino Kaiun Group's history with large gas tankers began in 1963 when it completed the Toyosu Maru, a large oceangoing LPG tanker, placing us among the pioneers in this industry. Our solid history, experience, and technology are renowned among customers in Japan and overseas, enabling us to conduct most of our business on medium- to long-term contracts.

Utilizing a wealth of experience backed by a pioneering history, we act as a seaborne LPG supply pipeline, with a focus on serving the world's major LPG importing countries-Japan, Korea, and China.

Amid rising concern for global environmental preservation in recent years, LNG is drawing increased attention as a clean source of energy, and the number of LNG development projects and LNG shipping volumes are increasing rapidly worldwide. The Iino Kaiun Group has long participated in Japan-bound as well as trilateral LNG transportation projects. From 2005, we also began ship management for LNG tankers, starting with the SK Sunrise, a LNG tanker chartered by the Korea Gas Corporation. In 2008, we began joint LNG tanker operations with the Kansai Electric Power Company, further expanding our LNG transport operations to encompass a diverse range of business models.
