Although Petrobras is getting rid of some of the gas chain assets, Brazil today produces increasing volumes in offshore fields. According to the ANP, Brazil hit record in mid-June, with the production of total natural gas of 103.5 million cubic meters per day (m³/d), exceeding the previous record of 100.4 MMm3/D obtained in December 2015.
This not to mention the volumes reinjected, that if they had a more informed market, could reduce dependence on gas imports from Bolivia and LNG. The use of gas has been increasingly frequent and tends to grow even more in the coming years. In the report titled "The Future of natural gas", conducted by researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), scientists considered natural gas as a viable alternative.
In addition, according to the report, a natural gas-powered power plant emits 50% less carbon dioxide. It is surprising the little attention given to natural gas, which is considered a strategic fuel and a transition to a cleaner energy matrix. And according to data, it is the fuel that will have the highest growth up to 2035.
Engevix, which has as one of its business premises the construction of a socially inclusive, environmentally sustainable and economically balanced world, is one of the companies that believes in the clean energy of natural gas, including the responsible For the implementation of the infrastructure of the Cacimbas Natural Gas treatment Unit (UTGC), in Linhares (ES), which has a production capacity of 5.5 million of M3/day, in the Cacimbas pole.
In addition, the contractor was responsible for the development of the Natural Gas Processing Unit (UPGN) and a natural gas condensate processing unit (UPCGN) called "on-site" and a part called "Off-site", with capacity to Production of 3.5 million of M3/day. The advances in the gas area are enormous and the world lives The Golden age, however, still lack market maturity in Brazil for gas to become a great preciosity, as it is considered in other countries.
