We at INPEX CORPORATION would like to express our sincere appreciation for your continued understanding and support of our group's business operations.
On October 1, 2008, INPEX Holdings Inc. marked a new beginning by changing its name to INPEX CORPORATION and moving its headquarters to the Akasaka district in Tokyo, following completion of the business integration between INPEX CORPORATION and Teikoku Oil Co., Ltd. This comprehensive organizational integration has allowed us to make our operations more efficient and our management structure more agile.
As Japan's largest oil and gas exploration and production company with a worldwide presence, we undertake proactive exploration, development and production activities in order to fulfill our social duty of contributing to a stable and efficient supply of energy. We at the INPEX Group will continue to work as a unified and integrated organization to sustainably enhance our corporate value for the benefit of all our stakeholders through medium- to long-term maintenance and expansion of our production and reserves.
Moving forward, we are committed to establishing even closer communications with you, as we seek your continued support for our cause of securing energy for a bright future.
