Macaé port terminal will expand its offshore area. In addition to the logistical support terminal to the oil and gas segment – the first in the city of Macaé (RJ) totally private-, the project will have a multipurpose terminal for general cargo and liquid bulk terminal, able to receive floating regasification units. The Antique joins the Inea (Instituto Estadual environment) with the application of amendment of Prior environmental license (LP) obtained in June, with its inclusion of expansion on environmental license.
For offshore structure will be linked to the rear area of the terminal by a bridge of approximately 2200 meters long (the extension before the expansion was 1,600 metres) and will have breakwater and marine platform, in a total area of 280,000 square meters. The terminal, with 12 meters deep, will feature ten mooring berths for supply boats and dockage area and maintenance, while the multi-purpose terminal, with 480 meters of Pier and 18 meters from draft, may receive sea-going vessels for transportation of general cargo, and also probes and varied craft types for maintenance and support.
Already the liquid bulk terminal will have two specific piers, 400 meters long and 18 meters deep, capable of receiving up to four vessels simultaneously. In addition, the terminal can accommodate floating regasification units, which will allow the receipt of cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the region. So, will also feature with an exclusive pipeline to drain the gas as pipelines for liquid flow to the unit tank onshore.
The Antique will be installed in the neighborhood of São José do Barreto, North of Macaé, right next to the Natural gas processing Unit (UPGN) of Cabiúnas, Petrobras. Its location is strategic to meet the exploration and production projects (E&P) installed in the basins of Campos and Santos.
With planned investment of approximately 2.2 billion R$, Macaé Port Terminal will have his works started in 2017, generating more than 1,100 direct and indirect jobs. The Start Up operation is planned for 2020, when it is expected to generate, in peaked, about 7500 jobs directly and indirectly, being only 800 in the management of the terminal.
The Engineering holds the controlling interest EBTE full Up since March this year. The project began to be studied in 2012 and currently is being conducted exclusively by the subsidiary BR-River Engineering.ACESSE AS REDES DA PANORAMA OFFSHORE:
