Malaysia Set to Get LNG Spot Cargo From Nigeria, Ship Data Show

Petroliam Nasional Bhd., Malaysia’s state-owned oil and gas producer, is set to receive a spot cargo of liquefied natural gas at its Sungai Udang receiving terminal in Melaka, according to ship-tracking data.

The Seri Bijaksana, with a capacity of about 153,000 cubic meters, is anchored off Perak on the western coast of peninsular Malaysia, according to transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. It is scheduled to dock Oct. 15, the data show.

The tanker sailed from Nigeria LNG Ltd.’s Bonny Island terminal, where it loaded the supercooled natural gas and departed Aug. 28.

Petronas, as the Kuala Lumpur-based company is called, bought the spot cargo through a sell tender held by Nigeria LNG last month. Malaysia was the world’s second largest producer of LNG in 2012 with exports of 23.72 million tons, according to the International Group of LNG Importers.
