* Nemba was offered at dated Brent plus 60 cents by Total, also unchanged.

* There are about 20 October-loading cargoes still available.

* Agbami was offered at dated Brent plus 60 cents a barrel, in line with Tuesday.

* Qua Iboe was offered at dated Brent plus $1.75 a barrel, with value pegged closer to dated plus $1.40.

* Forcados was last offered at dated Brent plus $2.00 and traders said there were still as many as eight cargoes of this grade available.

* Indian refiner BPCL is looking for West African grades in a tender it is running this week. The tender closes on Friday. (Reporting by Alex Lawler; Editing by Mark Potter)
