LONDON, March 6 (Reuters) – Several Angolan cargoes traded on a spot basis, while some Nigerian oil found an outlet into an Indonesian tender.
* Several Angolan oil cargoes traded, as Statoil sold a cargo of Dalia and Exxon and Total each sold cargoes of Pazflor.
* Total also sold a cargo of CLOV loading in early April.
* In total, roughly a dozen April-loading Angolan cargoes had yet to trade, including two held by state oil company Sonangol.
* Sonangol was still offering two cargoes, including Dalia at dated Brent minus 70 cents a barrel and a cargo of Saxi at dated Brent plus 75 cents a barrel.
* Several Nigerian cargoes sold into a tender from Indonesia’s Pertamina, but a significant amount of the April loading programmes was still available.
* Mercuria sold a cargo of Agbami to Statoil, but some said the deal was possibly a swap of Agbami cargoes for different dates.
* Sellers had lowered differentials slightly, by 10-20 cents, bringing Qua Iboe down to roughly $2 per barrel above dated Brent.
* Still, several dozen cargoes had yet to trade just a week before the May loading plans were due.
* Total and Glencore had won a tender to supply Indonesia’s Pertamina with crude oil for April and May delivery. Total will supply 3 million barrels, including Nigerian Bonny Light, Qua Iboe and Escravos and Glencore will supply Congolese Coco.
* Pertamina issued another tender for delivery on May 15-16, including Bonny Light, Qua Iboe, Pennington, EA, Okwuibome and another for May 2-3 delivery, including Cabinda, Coco, Girassol, Etame, Olombendo and Rabi Light.
* A tender is due later this week from India’s IOC. (Reporting By Libby George Editing by David Evans) ))
