Petrobras creates program to assess potential and use of natural gas produced from conventional and non-conventional reservoirs in Brazil

Monday, Jan 14, 2013

Petrobras announces that its Executive Board has approved the creation of the Onshore Natural Gas Program (PRON-GAS), focused on the exploration, production and monetization of natural gas from the Brazilian onshore sedimentary basins, in conventional and non-conventional reservoirs.

The Program aims at assessing natural gas potential at the Brazilian onshore sedimentary basins and estimate the cost to use this gas in an integrated energy system that involves thermoelectric power generation, located near the transmission lines and the complimentary production of nitrogen fertilizers to supply the Brazilian agribusiness.

To meet its goals this initiative will integrate the knowledge and experience of Petrobras in the Exploration & Production, Gas & Power and International Areas, besides applying third party technologies already in use in onshore natural gas production.
