Brazil Scheduled to Get LNG Spot Cargo From Trinidad at Pecem

Petroleo Brasileiro SA, Brazil’s importer of liquefied natural gas, is scheduled to receive a spot cargo from Trinidad & Tobago, ship-tracking data show.

The Madrid Spirit, with a capacity of about 135,000 cubic meters, is headed to the port of Pecem in northeastern Brazil, according to transmissions captured by IHS Fairplay on Bloomberg. Rio de Janeiro-based Petroleo Brasileiro, or Petrobras, has a floating regasification terminal at Pecem.

The vessel was originally scheduled to dock yesterday, according to the data. It sailed from Atlantic LNG Co.’s Point Fortin terminal, where it loaded the supercooled natural gas and departed on June 12.

Brazil doesn’t have long-term LNG supply contracts with Trinidad & Tobago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Petrobras will import as many as 60 cargoes this year, up from 56 in 2012, Hugo Repsold, an executive manager, said June 11.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
