Who we are

Japan Petroleum Exploration Company Limited (JAPEX) is a hydrocarbon exploration, production, and transportation company. The Company explores and produces crude oil, natural gas, and liquefied natural gas reserves around the world and has proven reserves of 272 million barrels in Japan and in the rest of the world. Besides its operations in Hokkaido, Akita, Yamagata, and Niigata in Japan, JAPEX has major operations in Canada, Indonesia, and Libya. Although currently a private company, the Government of Japan owns a 34% stake in JAPEX.

What we do

JAPEX's exploration and production operations in Japan primarily center on Niigata, Akita, and Hokkaido. Domestically, JAPEX conducts exploration and production near existing reserves while also exploring other areas of Japan. JAPEX also works on systems to supply more natural gas and liquefied natural gas to a broader base of customers in Japan. Currently, the Company is extending and upgrading an already 826 km natural gas pipeline. Overseas, JAPEX works to acquire the rights to already discovered oilfields and to acquire exploration rights in order to find additional oil reserves.
