Petrobras seeks to attract new investors in Itaboraí, Rio de Janeiro

Bnamericas Published: Tuesday, July 19, 2022

This is a machine translation of the original Petrobras press release published in Portuguese. 

Petrobras made available this Tuesday, 19/7, a market consultation (Request for Information – RFI) to assess the interest of companies in acquiring land owned by the company located in Itaboraí (RJ), where the GasLub Hub is installed.

Of a total land area of about 3km2, Petrobras has 2.1km2 available for potential negotiation, allowing the opportunity for more investments to be directed to the region by other agents, with the development of new economic activities.

Based on the information provided by the interested parties who responded to the consultation, Petrobras will evaluate the models with the greatest potential for the offer of available land, in order to maximize the reach of mutual interests.

With this initiative, the company reinforces the commitment assumed in the protocol of intentions signed in September 2021 with the Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro, the city hall of Itaboraí and the Federation of Industries of Rio de Janeiro (Firjan), which aims at the industrial development of the GasLub Hub.

Among the projects planned by Petrobras for the GasLub Hub is the Itaboraí Natural Gas Treatment Unit (UTG Itaboraí), which is part of the scope of the Integrated Route 3 Project.

This project, which involves a gas pipeline and processing infrastructure, will have the capacity to process 21 million m3 per day of natural gas from the pre-salt complex of the Santos Basin.

The company is also evaluating the integration of the assets of the GasLub Hub with the Duque de Caxias refinery (Reduc), for the production of basic lubricating oils and fuels, and the construction of a thermoelectric plant.
