    On April 26 and 27, students from the Federal Technological University of Paraná (Universidade Tecnológica Federal do Paraná –UTFPR) got to know the work of the Terminal Gás Sul (TGS), in the Babitonga Bay (SC), a project that Tenenge and OEC are working on for their client New Fortress Energy (NFE). In total, 13 students and 2 professors from the Engineering course experienced the routine of a construction site during two days and went deep into the practice of subjects previously seen only in theory.

    The day began with the presentation of the Code of Conduct. Then the students received instructions on safety and watched a presentation by Marco Aurélio Barros, contract manager for the construction site. The visit continued in the equipment simulator, and then to the Itapoá industrial site, where they could see the work front in motion. The group had the opportunity to appreciate Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), the directional bore that will connect the onshore pipeline to the TGS.

    During the visit, the students also interacted with managers from New Fortress Energy, from the Gás Sul Consortium, and with young members of the project who have joined as Trainees or through the Vacation Internship Program. At the end of the day, the visitors participated in a chat based on what they had seen and were able to talk about their expectations concerning their chosen profession.

    According to Marco Aurélio Barros, TENENGE’s Contract Manager, it is fundamental to take advantage of opportunities like this to offer practical experience to students in the regions where our works take place. “We are excited to be able to hold this community relations program. For us it is always a pleasure to be able to show our work and share knowledge with future professionals in the area”, he said.

    THE TGS 

    The venture will supply 15 million cubic meters of Natural Gas per day, representing a more than three-fold increase in the total currently available in the state of Santa Catarina. The Terminal is located 300 meters off the coast of the city of São Francisco do Sul, and includes infrastructure to receive, store, regasify, and distribute natural gas to the southern region.

    The LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) will be transported by sea by methane carriers to the TGS, where it will be transferred by the ship to ship system to a FSRU (floating storage and regasification unit) with the capacity to store 160,000 cubic meters of LNG, which, in turn, will be interconnected by 33 km of 20-inch pipelines with the GASBOL (Bolivia-Brazil Gas Pipeline), which will distribute the gas to various municipalities in the southern region of Brazil.
