2nd edition of Sergipe Day raises profile of oil and gas industry

FGV Energy and the state government of Sergipe are holding the second edition of Sergipe Day, this time in Rio de Janeiro. The conference is one of the main forums for debate on the potential and opportunities of the state of Sergipe. This public event will take place on March 12, at 8 a.m., at the FGV Cultural Center. The aim is to highlight the opportunities that exist in Sergipe involving the oil and gas sector and to attract investments that promote the state’s development.

The event’s activities will include presentations by the state government and key players involved in the development of Sergipe’s economy, especially in oil and gas-related activities, as well as presentations by companies such as Petrobras, Eneva, TAG, Commit, Carmo Energy and Diamante Energia. During the conference, FGV Energy will present its study titled “Analysis of the Economic Impact of Investments in Oil and Gas in the State of Sergipe,” which measures the effects generated by the oil and gas sector and offers a regulatory diagnosis of the gas market based on 40 interviews with market agents, government bodies and associations.

The event will be attended by the governor of Sergipe, Fábio Mitidieri, the deputy governor, Zezinho Sobral, Senator Laércio Oliveira, other lawmakers and state secretaries. Representatives of federal government bodies, including the National Oil, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (ANP), the Brazilian government’s Energy Research Company (EPE) and the Mining and Energy Ministry, are also due to participate.

The state of Sergipe is emerging as a new frontier for the oil and gas sector due to Petrobras’ significant discoveries off the coast of the state, in ultra-deep waters, as part of the Sergipe Deepwater Project, which is projected to produce 240,000 barrels of oil and 18 million cubic meters of gas per day.

In addition to this project, the state of Sergipe is receiving onshore investment from Carmo Energy following Petrobras’ disposal of the Carmópolis hub, and it is home to Eneva’s largest natural gas-fired plant, as well as an LNG terminal, which is scheduled to be hooked up to the gas pipeline network by the middle of this year, creating a wide range of opportunities for the sector. 

“The partnership between the state government and Fundação Getulio Vargas, through FGV Energy, to carry out this study will certainly help a lot in highlighting the opportunities that exist in Sergipe. We will work to incorporate the proposals raised in its diagnosis of public policies, seeking to promote Sergipe’s competitiveness and attract new businesses,” said the governor of Sergipe, Fábio Mitidieri.
