The resumption of work on Comperj's natural gas processing unit has made residents of Itaboraí excited.

The resumption of investments in the Rio Petrochemical Complex (COMPERJ) in Itaboraí in the metropolitan area, generated optimism in the city, especially for Simone, who owns a restaurant and an inn: "We had a loss not only with the work stopped, but also with some companies that were left to make payments to us, we are expecting that the works come back in full force or at least half to the lever city for good.”

O COMPERJ it would be the largest industrial enterprise in the country, but 4 years ago it suffered a strong wave of layoffs due to the crisis at Petrobras. The complex was also investigated in the Lava-Jato operation and left the city abandoned. Stores closed or for rent, empty commercial rooms, buildings and enterprises stopped. Now, the completion of works on the natural gas processing unit, essential for COMPERJ's operation, comes as a relief for the municipality that is rehearsing the recovery of the economy.

” The expectation is very positive, we even imagine opening a flat in the next few months already preparing for this, with an eye on the furniture of people who come to work in the city”, exclaims Guilherme Lubrano, Business Administrator. monday to Brazilian Association of Machinery and Equipment (ABIMAQ), the sector will impact 18.300 jobs.” The resumption of investments and the return for the completion of COMPERJ, is fundamental for the region of Itaboraí that aspires to the completion of the project”, says Karine Fragoso, oil and gas manager at FIRJAN”.


The Natural Gas Processing Unit should generate around 5 direct jobs, according to the City Hall. The forecast is that the works should be resumed in June of this year (2018). “Approximately US$8 billion will be spent on the UPGN, while Petrobras is looking for an international partner to complete the refinery,” says the mayor of Itaboraí, Sadinoel Souza.
