Petrobras should receive offers for sale of the TAG

The state will open the terms of the contract, negotiated as the Franco-Belgian company Engie, for new offers in the sale of 90% of the associated gas carrier (TAG). At this stage, investors who had already bid last year will be able to redo their proposals.

The offer of Engie was chosen by Petrobras to have exclusivity in the negotiations of the asset, according to sources. The value would be between US $8 billion and US $9 billion (R $30 billion and R $34 billion), but the Mubadala Fund of Abu Dhabi and the consortium formed by the Australian bank Macquarie and the Brazilian holding ITAÚSA must submit new proposals.

After the sale has been made, the amount collected will be the largest ever realized by the company. In September 2016, the oil tanker sold 90% of the new Southeast Transport Pipeline (NTS), being 82.35% for the Canadian manager Brookfield and 7.65% for Itaúsa. The state government raised US $4.2 billion (almost R $16 billion) with this business. The TAG holds a network of pipelines of about 4500 kilometers long, located in the north and northeast regions.
