Currently, the state consumes an average of 357,0 m³ of CNG per day, and has 128 facilities supplying this fuel. With the pipeline inauguration, the trend will be increasing: more CNG stations will be built in the short term, especially in the far south of Santa Catarina, what will raise the consumption of methane.
The launching of this gas pipeline had the presence of the governor Leonel Pavan; former governor Luiz Henrique da Silveira; the chairman of SCGÁS, Ivan Ranzolin; the regional secretary of Araranguá, Heriberto Afonso Schmidt; as well as mayors, entities and other gas industry representatives.
Secretary Schmidt explained that among the benefits of the project is the attraction and expectations of a new investment, enabling the development of the south region of the Brazilian state.
For Ranzolin, the culmination of this initiative is another step toward his company’s commitment to carry natural gas to all regions in the state, contributing to the development of Santa Catarina. With this recent inauguration, SCGás is attending 61 municipalities.
