Daigas Group has businesses in 3 fields
（As of March 31, 2022）
The Daigas Group leverages the know-how and strong capital it has cultivated in its three business fields of domestic energy, international energy, and life & business solutions, and actively takes on the challenge of expanding into new business areas both in Japan and overseas. By doing so, we aim to evolve as a collection of multiple businesses and realize “future value.”
Natural gas value chain in the domestic/overseas energy business
Natural gas extracted overseas is transported to Japan as liquefied natural gas (LNG) by dedicated tankers, where it is re-gasified at the receiving terminal and sent to customers through pipelines. This series of flows is the natural gas value chain. Depending on the process, we call it "upstream business" or "midstream and downstream business," and the Daigas Group is building a natural gas value chain overseas just like it is doing in Japan.
