Petróleo Brasileiro S.A. – Petrobras informs that it is reassessing the date for the start of operation of the Route 3 Integrated Project, scheduled for the second half of 2022, due to the demobilization of the workforce of the company SPE Kerui-Método, responsible for the works of the Natural Gas Processing Unit (UPGN) of the Gaslub Cluster, in Itaboraí, Rio de Janeiro.
The company clarifies that the demobilizations took place in recent weeks by unilateral decision of the company SPE Kerui-Método and, for this reason, the work is paralyzed, being carried out only activities of preservation of equipment and facilities. Additionally, Petrobras reinforces that it is up to date with all its commitments with the referred company.
Petrobras has made every effort to avoid the stoppage and is evaluating actions to minimize the impacts on the conclusion of the work. The new estimated date for the asset to go into operation will be announced after the relevant evaluations are concluded.
