W. Africa Crude-Angolan clears, traders wait for programmes


LONDON, Sept 18 (Reuters) – Some lingering October-loading Angolan cargoes traded on Monday with still no sign of the November loading programmes for Angola or Nigeria.

* Unipec sold two cargoes, one Sangos and one Pazflor, after offering those last week. Further details did not emerge.

* India’s BPCL has a buy tender running with part two closing on Sept. 22 for a variety of November loading crude grades, including west African.
