Shizuoka Gas set a new record with the Company's highest-ever daily sendout of piped natural gas on December 1st, 2005. The sendout reached 2,091,000 cubic meters, topping the previous record of the 2,038,000 cubic meters set on March 1st.

The daily gas sendout is likely to rise still further in the near future because of expanding industrial demand for natural gas, combined with extra demand in the winter months.
