Dec. 3 (Bloomberg) -- Japan, the world’s biggest buyer of liquefied natural gas, received a spot cargo from Equatorial Guinea at Chita, ship-tracking data show.

The Gaslog Santiago, with a capacity of about 155,000 cubic meters, arrived today at the Chita terminal in central Japan, according to transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. The vessel loaded the gas at Equatorial Guinea LNG Holdings Ltd.’s Punta Europa facility and departed Nov. 6.

Japan’s two terminals at the Chita peninsula, with a combined capacity of 19.9 million metric tons a year, receive term shipments from Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia, Qatar, Russia and Algeria, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Asian LNG buyers typically import spot cargoes from December to March to meet peak heating and power demand during winter in the northern hemisphere.
