Immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Kumamoto earthquake, natural gas filling stations operated without hindrance. The stable fuel supply made a significant contribution to recovery logistics after the disaster, facing none of the major issues of fuel supply and security for gasoline and diesel (for which there is a heavy bias in the Japanese economy).
