Breakdown of thermal power generation fuel

Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO) uses oil, coal, and LNG as fuel for thermal power generation. The table below shows the breakdown of thermal power generation fuel consumed by TEPCO during 2013 April - 2014 March. Units among the items are different, so I cannot compare them. But it seems that thermal power generation relies on LNG.

Fuel oil (unit: kL) 4,828,000
Crude oil (unit: kL) 1,996,000
LNG (unit: ton) 23,779,000
Coal (unit: ton) 7,750,000

Japan is dependent on imports for LNG. TEPCO is one of the biggest importer of LNG in the world. TEPCO imported 24,088,000 tons of LNG in 2011. This volume is 10% of the total volume, which was traded worldwide.

The following shows TEPCO LNG imports by country.
