Brazil to use more gas for power generation

Oct 20, 1997 02:00 AM

Sept. 2, 1997 Brazil's Ministry of Mines and Energy issued the annual energy report for 1996 stating that natural gas accounted for the generation of only 714 MW out of a total 273,800 MW registered in the last period. From the total production of 9.1 bn cm of gas only 230 mm cm were used as feedstock for electric power generation. Gas therefore represents only 2,5 % of the feedstock used for power generation, a percentage to increase to 12 % by year 2010. The R$ 1.5 bn Bolivia - Brazil gas pipeline will change the scenario, allowing the transportation of 30 mm cmpd. Another major project is the use of the gas reserves at Urucu, in the Amazon, to cost investments of R$ 1.6 bn, for the transportation of 4 mm cmpd of gas by end 1998. Also the government has given green light for the setting up of 11 thermal plants of in total 3,700 MW. The largest project is to be based at Macae, with 700 MW, using the gas from Campos basin.
