Argentina Receives LNG Cargo From Qatar at Bahia Blanca May 5

May 6 (Bloomberg) -- Argentina received a cargo of liquefied natural gas from Qatar over the weekend, according to ship-tracking data.

The Gemmata, with a capacity of about 135,000 cubic meters, arrived yesterday at the port of Bahia Blanca southwest of Buenos Aires, according to ship transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. The tanker sailed from Qatar’s Ras Laffan port where it loaded the supercooled natural gas.

Officials from Energia Argentina SA, the state-run energy company known as Enarsa, didn’t immediately respond to e-mails seeking comment outside normal working hours. Brian Devlin, Qatargas’ Doha-based spokesman, didn’t reply to an e-mail seeking comment. Yousra Koura, a Rasgas spokesman in Doha didn’t respond to a call to his phone seeking comment.

Argentina has no long-term LNG-purchase contracts, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Enarsa and YPF SA have issued seven spot purchase tenders seeking as many as 150 cargoes from December last year. YPF’s latest tender for seven LNG shipments delivered to Bahia Blanca in the second half of 2013 closes today.
