Petrobras must pay R $7.5 bi for the loss of COMPERJ

Petrobras must sign, until September, a conduct adjustment term (TAC) of R $7.5 billion, to repair damage caused to the municipality of Itaboraí (RJ) resulting from the shutdown of the works of the Comperj (petrochemical complex of Rio de Janeiro) in 2015. The agreement was announced during a public hearing held on Monday, 24, by the CPI (Parliamentary committee of Inquiry) installed in the ALERJ (Legislative Assembly of the State of Rio de Janeiro) in order to investigate the fiscal crisis instituted in the state Fluminense.

The general manager of implementation and developments of Petrobras, Alessandro Costa Mello, said that the legal department of the State should finish analyzing and signing the TAC between July and August. According to the mayor of Itaboraí, Dr. Sadinoel, the municipality suffered strong impacts due to the shutdown of the COMPERJ works. "We had the biggest unemployment in Brazil in Itaboraí. There were 30000 jobs thrown in the trash between 2014 and 2015, "he said.
