W. Africa Crude-Angolan cargoes sell, tender results emerge

 LONDON, Jan 10 (Reuters) - Angolan cargoes are selling more
rapidly as prices have come down and loading programmes are due
next week. * Angolan state oil company Sonangol sold its cargo of Dalia
for around dated Brent plus $2.20. * It now only has two cargoes left to sell for loading in
February, a Gindungo and a Hungo, after selling three on
Thursday - some of its slowest sales of spot cargoes in months. * Around 10 cargoes remain for export in February, and none
of the term cargoes re-offered in the Platts window were heard
to have been sold to new customers. * Vitol and Chevron were among the awardees for a tender for
India's IOC, delivering Nigerian Amenam, Egina and Escravos. * Vitol, Total and Trafigura satisfied a tender from
Indonesia's Pertamina for 3 million barrels of crude. * Nigerian Bonny Light and Qua Iboe were being offered at
around dated Brent plus $3.20, Egina for $5.50 and Forcados for
$3.90. RELATED NEWS * Angolan billionaire and former first daughter Isabel Dos
Santos decried a New Year's Eve court order to freeze her vast
assets as a "witch hunt" engineered to weaken her father's
influence and distract from economic failures. * India's oil demand growth is set to overtake China by
mid-2020s, priming the country for more refinery investment but
making it more vulnerable to supply disruption in the Middle
East, the International Energy Agency (IEA) said on Friday. (Reporting by Noah Browning; Editing by Susan Fenton) ))
