Gas Hub

The Açu Gas Hub seeks to receive, process and offer to the market a large volume of natural gas, whether imported through the Açu Regasification Terminal or produced offshore in the Campos dos Goytacazes, Santos and Espírito Santo Basins.

The project has 6.4 GW in environmental licenses for natural gas-fired thermal power plants, as well as licenses for installation of a GNL Gasification and Import Terminal, with capacity for 10 MMm³/d (there is an ongoing licensing process for 40 MMm³/d). Additionally, the project includes building natural gas processing units (UPGNs) and pipelines to connect gas sources to the national transportation network, located 50km away from the Port of Açu.
