Equinor Eyes Brazil Natural Gas Infrastructure
Norway's Equinor ASA is scouting locations on Brazil's coast to install new natural gas infrastructure, the company's Brazil chief said, as the firm's gas-heavy offshore fields come on-line in the coming years.
Natural gas is considered both a promising opportunity and a vexing problem in Brazil. The Latin American oil powerhouse is rapidly developing a prolific oil area off the nation's southeastern coast known as the pre-salt.
Many of the region's assets have significant amounts of natural gas, but consumption is low among Brazilians and the nation has few pipelines and terminals to facilitate exports. As a result, firms have largely opted to "re-inject" the gas, in a process that increases crude output.
That will only work for so long. Some fields coming on-line in the pre-salt have too much gas to re-inject. Two massive government auctions in early November in a gas-rich zone are likely to add to the conundrum.
In an interview, Executive Vice President Margareth Øvrum estimated Equinor's gas condensate Pao de Acucar field would come online in the mid-2020s, making it "probably the first field coming on-line (in Brazil) that needs a gas export solution onshore."
The firm is having similar conversations at its Carcara field. It expects to begin "first phase" production there in 2023 or the first half of 2024, she said. Equinor has not decided on when it will begin phase two, she added, but that could involve constructing natural gas infrastructure as well.
