Argentina to Get LNG Spot Cargo From Qatar at Bahia Blanca Port

July 8 (Bloomberg) -- Argentina, which has no long-term contracts to import liquefied natural gas, is scheduled to receive a spot cargo of the fuel from Qatar, according to ship-tracking data.

The Golar Arctic, with a capacity of about 138,000 cubic meters, is preparing to dock at the port of Bahia Blanca southwest of Buenos Aires, according to ship transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. It was scheduled to arrive on July 5.

The tanker loaded its cargo at Qatar’s Ras Laffan LNG terminal and departed on June 14, according to the data.

Argentina imports LNG through YPF SA, the country’s biggest energy company, and state-run Energia Argentina SA, known as Enarsa. YPF closed a tender on May 6 to buy seven LNG cargoes for delivery to Bahia Blanca. Enarsa and YPF have issued seven spot tenders seeking as many as 150 shipments since December.
