SAO PAULO Aug 18 (Reuters) - Brazil's state-led oil company Petroleo Brasileiro SA said on Monday it had clinched a new deal with Bolivia's YPFB to import natural gas for the thermoelectric plant in Brazil's centerwest city of Cuiaba through December 2016.

The Brazilian company known also as Petrobras said the deal would have a $268 million negative impact on its third-quarter results. (Reporting by Reese Ewing; Editing by Lisa Shumaker)
