It is of considerable significance that capital requirements involved in financing L.N.G. plants have increased beyond the reach of most private investors. In response to this situation, it is of critical importance that imaginative financial programs be created in order to provide for the necessary confluence of capital. We propose, for purposes of this paper, to examine the major financing options offered by Japanese government agencies which are suitable for L.N.G. plants. Methods discussed will include such things as fund supply, insurance, and guarantees. Further explanations will focus on the working relationships between JNOC, the EXIM Bank of Japan, OECF, and EIDMITI by way of reviewing their involvement in the financing programs for the Brunei, Das Island, and Indonesian L.N.G. projects. The final section of this paper will place the above-mentioned projects in an historical perspective and briefly review their backgrounds.
