The focus was on project 4B to pre-salt natural gas flow through the Port of Itaguaí.

"We are aware that natural gas will be the fuel for our growth. We are the main energy hub national. We account for 79.3% of national oil production and 61.2% of the gas, and this is a concrete opportunity. We have received many companies multinational companies that see natural gas as a source of transition energy to their industries. We are working to create the best conditions for arrival of new ventures and the growth of those who are already in our state," said Rio Governor Cláudio Castro.
