Brazil - Hydrocarbon Transport and Processing Project (Inglês)

The main objectives are to: (a) enhance natural gas utilization as a substitute for other sources of energy with higher economic and environmental costs; (b) reduce the distribution costs of petroleum products by substituting pipelines for road and water transport; (c) reduce petroleum product losses through processing optimization; and (d) reduce environmental costs and safety risks in petroleum product transport and refining. In supporting these aims the project includes two components. The transport component consists of: (i) a pipeline and related facilities to deliver natural gas to Sao Paulo; (ii) three pipelines to deliver liquified products more economically to distribution centers; (iii) engineering design, environmental impact studies, and training in pipeline operations and transportation planning. The processing component consists of: (i) a Hydrotreatment Plant at the Cubatao refinery; (ii) automation studies focusing on optimization of process and centralized control for loading, storage and offsite facilities; (iii) an industrial safety and environmental program.
