The state of Rio Grande do Sul intends to organize its own regulations for the natural gas input regardless of the government bill that aims to regulate the sector in the country and which must be sent to Congress by mid-year.

The proposal of the federal government should facilitate the reduction of Petrobras' participation in the area and help attract more private investors. In the case of Rio Grande do Sul, the legal framework in the state will deal with issues such as supervision, tariff adjustments, biomethane insert (purified biogas organic matter and has the same applications of fossil natural gas) in the energy matrix, among other topics .
