Port of Santos

Petrocity Porto will build a port center that is expected to generate many direct and indirect jobs

Experiencing moments of great expectation, Petrocity Porto envisions the construction of the Port Center of São Mateus in Espirito Santo. This center will be a complex with three million square meters and several terminals to serve various sectors, including oil and gas. Activities relevant to the supply boat will be carried out from this area, having a park of fluids, a park of tubes, effective support services, units for repair and spare parts.

The expectation is that the port works alone, which should start in July, will generate more than 2.500 jobs. In addition to this project, progress is being made on the project to develop the Minas-Espirito Santo railway (EFEMES), connecting the port center to Minas Gerais.

Currently, the project only has the pending environmental license and the signature of the adhesion contract so that I can start the installation. The contract has not yet been signed precisely because this license is still missing. The process is already regularized with Antaq (National Waterway Transport Agency) and the Secretariat of Ports of the Presidency of the Republic (SEP). It is an area of ​​3 million square meters owned by Petrocity Portos, which controls the development.

The forecast for the process to move forward is to start construction in July 2019 and there will be two years of work, that is, in 2021 the company intends to have the operating license so that they can start the movements after the release of Antaq. For the oil and gas sector, the port will be at the center of all onshore and offshore activity in oil and gas exploration.

In addition to the oil sector, the port will also serve dimension stone and cellulose activity, container handling, roll on and roll off, as well as electricity generation units, photovoltaic energy and substation. All in the memorandum stage awaiting to sign the definitive contracts at the turn of the year.

There will certainly be a positive impact on the economy of the region of Espirito Santo, the north and northwest of the state, the south of Bahia and even the east of Minas Geras will be directly impacted, with the company's vision of implementing the terminal and moving the economy into the interior .

The forecast is that the port works will generate 2.500 direct and indirect jobs, but 1.500 direct and indirect in the operation of the enterprise. For the construction of the railroad, we are predicting more than 3 thousand jobs.

Companies in the oil and gas sector should move around 1,38 trillion in 10 years
