Oil & Gas Projects Abound in Brazil
Oil & Gas Production is big business in Brazil. Production reached 3.307 million barrels of oil equivalent per day in November, according to Brazil’s government. As such, it should come as no surprise that Brazil is home to several oil and gas terminal projects worth $5.68 billion, according to Industrial Info’s information platform.
Among the projects is the Porto Central Refined Products Terminal in Presidente Kennedy, Espirito Santo. TPK Logistica, working with engineering, procurement and construction firm Van Oord Servicos de Operacoes Maritimas Ltda, is performing planning and scheduling work on the terminal, which is part of the Porto Central Port Project. The terminal would include 80 tanks to store up to 160,000 cubic meters of refined products. Construction kickoff is scheduled for mid-2017, with completion in mid-2020.
Also in the works is the Ponta Negra Crude Oil and Refined Products Terminal, located in Nitoroi, Rio de Janeiro. DTA Engenharia is performing detailed engineering for the project, which would have a total storage capacity of 850,000 barrels to receive oil produced from the Campos Basin and Santos Basin offshore subsalt fields. Construction kicked off in August 2016, with completion planned for late 2019.
Meanwhile, Terminal Portuario Novo Remanso SA is awaiting permitting for a refined products terminal located in Itacoatiara, Amazonas. The project includes eight 36,000-barrel diesel tanks. Construction kickoff is expected in September 2017, with completion in mid-2020.
