Petrobras President Pedro Parente and Ceará Governor Camilo Santana met at the company’s headquarters in Rio de Janeiro to discuss the possibilities of investing in the Pecem port regasification terminal and storage tanks for oil derivatives.
According to the governor, several companies have already contacted the state expressing interest in analyzing the potential of these assets. According to him, a greater participation of Petrobras in these contacts with investors would be important. Parente told the governor that Petrobras is willing to receive investors so they can learn about the company’s partnerships and divestment methodology.
The Pecém terminal is the first flexible natural gas regasification (LNG) regasification in Brazil, and has the capacity to transfer up to 7 million m³ / day of natural gas to the Guamaré-Pecém Gas Pipeline (Gasfor). It serves mainly Ceará and Fortaleza thermoelectric plants. Petrobras has started the competitive process for the sale of its terminal in Ceara last year.
The meeting was attended by Petrobras Supply Director Jorge Celestino, Ceará Economic Development Secretary César Ribeiro, International Relations Secretary Antônio Bahlmann and Cearáportos President Danilo Serpa.
Parente and Celestino volunteered to talk to companies interested in the terminal and highlighted the importance of new partners for the State of Ceara.
