Decree regulating New Gas Law is published

The decree regulating the New Gas Law was published by the federal government last Friday (4), in the Official Gazette. Among the changes, the text brings the exchange of the grant ing regime for authorization to explore pipeline transport and underground storage services – which reduces bureaucracy for the expansion of the natural gas transportation network.

In addition, the new law talks about the classification of transport pipelines, equates biomethane to natural gas and creates rules for interaction between spheres of power in this sector. Another novelty is the guarantee of non-discriminatory access to infrastructure such as production flow pipelines, treatment or processing facilities and liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals.
