Dec. 18 (Bloomberg) -- Japan, the world’s largest buyer of liquefied natural gas, received a spot cargo from Equatorial Guinea at Sakai, ship-tracking data show.

The Energy Progress, with 145,000 cubic meters of capacity, docked at the Sakai terminal in central Japan on Dec. 14, according to ship transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. The ship loaded its cargo at Equatorial Guinea LNG’s Punta Europa terminal and departed Nov. 13.

Sakai LNG’s terminal, with capacity of 7.1 million metric tons a year, receives term supply from Indonesia, Malaysia, Australia and Qatar, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

Asian LNG buyers typically import spot cargoes from December to March to meet peak heating and power demand.
