All Saturday morning papers reported on Friday’s arrival in Niigata of a tanker carrying the first shipment of U.S. shale gas, saying that since the bulk of the nation’s energy imports come from the Middle East and Southeast Asia, Japanese energy companies are attaching high importance to U.S. shale gas imports, which are likely to increase in view of the incoming Trump administration’s policy of supporting the development of shale gas at home.
