Brazil reinjects pre-salt gas due to lack of structure

According to a survey by the National Oil, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP) with the Ministry of Mines and (MME), Brazil has reinjected 6.5 billion cubic meters of natural gas pre-salt wells by April of this year.

This volume is much larger than the normally imported volume in the same period (2.9 billion cubic meters). In addition to increasing their oil production, companies reinject the gas because there is no good pipeline infrastructure to flow the product to the country's coast.

It is worth remembering that since 2018, the gas reinjected into the wells has been surpassing imported quantity. In this way, the initiative shows how it ends up being economically unfeasible for private enterprise to take advantage of pre-salt gas.
