HOUSTON, June 12 (Reuters) - A unit in Peru of Argentina's oil company Pluspetrol has launched a tender to sell a 300,000-barrel cargo combining medium distillate blend stock (MDBS) and natural gasoline for delivery at Pisco port on June 28-30, according to an invitation seen by Reuters on Thursday.

Previously this month, Pluspetrol and partners in Peru offered to sell three 300,000-barrel cargoes of natural gasoline for July and a 380,000-barrel cargo of Loreto crude for August.

For the latest tender, the company will receive bids until Tuesday. Bids must be indexed to ultra low-sulfur diesel (ULSD) prices at the U.S. Gulf Coast and natural gasoline prices at Mont Belvieu.

The buyer also has the option to bid for only 150,000 barrels of MDBS, according to the document.

Sellers of this cargo will include Pluspetrol, U.S. oil firm Hunt Oil, Korea's SK Innovation, Spain's Repsol , Argentina's Tecpetrol and Algeria's Sonatrach. (Reporting by Marianna Parraga)
