The document states that after the earthquake in March 2011, over the plan of 34 batches of LNG totaling over 2 million tons were sent to Japan. Nine batches were shipped through supernormal production, and 25 batches redirected under the decision of Gazprom and Shell – the company’s main shareholders.
