LONDON- Egypt's natural gas company EGAS has offered four liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargoes for loading from the Idku plant between May 6 and June 1, two industry sources said on Monday.

The cargo loading dates are May 6-8, May 18-20, May 26-28 and May 30-June 1. All of them are offered on a free-on-board basis, meaning the buyer has to arrange shipping.

The cargoes are offered in two separate tenders, both of which close on April 9.
