State-run Petroperu launched a tender to buy two 100,000 barrel cargos of biodiesel to be received from May 2 to June 6 at Talara, Conchan and Mollendo ports, according to a document seen by Reuters on Friday.

The oil company, which operates most of Peru's refineries, this week also launched a purchase offer for a 220,000 barrel cargo combining cracked naphtha and high octane gasoline blend stock (HOGBS) for May.

Petroperu will receive offers until April 9 for this tender and they must be indexed to diesel number 2 from the U.S. Gulf Coast. The biodiesel must contain a maximum of 15 parts per million sulfur, the document says.
