HOUSTON, Oct 10 (Reuters) - State-run Colombian oil company Ecopetrol launched a tender to sell three 500,000 barrels cargoes of Vasconia crude, to be delivered from November 1 to December 2, according to an invitation seen by Reuters on Thursday.
Ecopetrol, which only invited refining companies for this tender, will receive bids until October 10, and they must be related to ICE Brent prices.
The companies can bid for the cargoes separately. The seller of the cargoes will be Ecopetrol or Hocol.
Canada’s Pacific Rubiales and China’s Sinochem recently launched tenders to sell Colombian crudes for delivery from October to November.
