Malaysia's Petronas offers LNG cargo from Australian plant - sources

SINGAPORE, March 26 (Reuters) - Malaysia's Petronas has offered a liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo for loading in May from Australia's Gladstone plant, two industry sources said.

The cargo was offered on a free-on-board (FOB) basis for loading over May 9 to 10, one of the sources said, adding that bids are due on March 27.

A second source said that the cargo was offered through private discussions and not a tender.
