SINGAPORE  - Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Company (KUFPEC) has offered a spot cargo of liquefied natural gas (LNG) for loading in Australia in September, two industry sources said on Wednesday.

The cargo is offered on a free-on-board (FOB) basis from the Wheatstone plant in Australia in late September, they said.

The tender closed on Aug. 13 with bids to remain valid until Aug. 15, one of them said.

KUFPEC is the foreign exploration arm of Kuwait, a key Gulf OPEC producer, and is one of the stakeholders in the Chevron Corp-operated Wheatstone LNG project.
