Petrobras creates program to assess potential and use of natural gas

Petrobras natural gas

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 estimates 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 Petrobras’ knowledge and experience in Exploration & Production, Gas & Energy and International Area, besides applying third party technologies already in use in onshore natural gas production.
