INPEX Begins Exploratory Drilling North of Minami-Nagaoka Gas Field in Japan
INPEX CORPORATION (INPEX) announced that it commenced exploratory onshore drilling operations (hereinafter “project”) at a location north of the INPEX-operated MinamiNagaoka Gas Field in Niigata Prefecture, Japan.

The project is scheduled to involve drilling to a depth equal to the production layer of the MinamiNagaoka Gas Field to determine the extent of oil and natural gas deposits at the drilling location.

INPEX will prioritize safety throughout the execution of the project while calling on the understanding and cooperation of the local communities. If the project leads to the commercial production of oil and natural gas, this would be expected to contribute to the improvement of Japan’s energy self-sufficiency rate.

The company will continue to work towards the effective and efficient utilization of domestic energy resources through new exploration and development operations in Japan.

On June 27, 2022, the project was made eligible to receive a public grant from the Japanese Ministry of Economy Trade and Industry (METI).

Period: December 2022 to July 2023 (planned)
