Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Japan, the world’s largest buyer of liquefied natural gas, received a spot cargo from Nigeria, ship-tracking data show.

The LNG Adamawa, with a capacity of about 143,000 cubic meters, arrived at the Higashi-Ohgishima terminal south of Tokyo today, according to transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. It loaded the supercooled gas at Nigeria LNG Ltd.’s Bonny Island terminal and departed Dec. 10.

The Higashi-Ohgishima terminal, owned by Tokyo Electric Power Co., has a capacity of 14.28 million metric tons a year and receives long-term shipments from Indonesia, Malaysia, Qatar, Australia, Oman, Abu Dhabi, Brunei and Russia, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

Tepco, as the company is known, is seeking to buy two spot cargoes each for February and March, two people with knowledge of the matter said last month. Asian LNG importers typically purchase spot cargoes from December to March to meet peak heating and power demand during winter in the northern hemisphere.
