The president’s departure directly affects the public call, since the Brazilian Carrier Bolivia-Brazil Pipeline (TBG) offers 18 million m³/capacity gasbol (Bolivia-Brazil Gas Pipeline), referring to a contract with Petrobras that expires this year and is currently suspended due to a request from the Administrative Council of Economic Defense (Cade).

In view of this, so that the pipeline does not become decontractor, up to six rounds will be made to submit the proposals, which will begin on 21 october, with disclosure of the final result until November 14. In 2021 and 2024 contracts of 6 million m³/day each between TBG and Petrobras. To 2030, wins the last contract, of 5.2 million m³/day.

TBG settled on April 18, 1997 and Gasbol began its natural gas transport operation in 1999. Composed of tubes of steel welded and buried in the ground at an average depth of one meter, the pipeline transports natural gas from Bolivia to Brazil, passing on by the states of Mato Grosso do Sul, São Paulo, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Great south.
