Conlest has already obtained a direct estimate from Petrobras and the month of hiring at least 400 employees for Comperj.

[supsystic-social-sharing id='1′]The Intermunicipal Consortium of Leste Fluminense Municipalities (Conleste) expects to hire at least 400 workers for the month of March 2018 with the resumption of works on the Rio de Janeiro Petrochemical Complex (Comperj). Representatives of the consortium met last Tuesday with the president of Petrobras, Pedro Parente, who confirmed the investment of around R$ 10 billion in the project until 2020.

Petrobras is also negotiating with a Chinese company to advance on another project: Route 3, a 232-kilometer set of pipelines and gas pipelines that connects the Santos Basin to Jaconé, in Maricá, in addition to a natural gas processing unit. There is yet another plan, which could result in the modernization of the entire refining park in the state. All of this was done in partnership with a Chinese company, with which the state-owned company is negotiating the terms of an agreement.


Completion of the plant is important for Petrobras to stop burning natural gas on the platforms. The practice has environmental impacts and requires strict authorizations and licenses issued by the National Petroleum Agency (ANP), which, over time, can make the operation more expensive.

President of Conleste, Mayor Rodrigo Neves (PV) suggested that Petrobras give priority to local labor in Comperj's operations. Relatives approved of the idea.

— I think it is a really very appropriate proposal and I guarantee that, if it were only up to me, it would already be adopted, but approval from the board is needed and I will take the topic to the next meeting — said the president of Petrobras.

Investigated in the Lava-Jato Operation, the Comperj works have been paralyzed since 2014. However, the local effects of the resumption of investments may be smaller than previously estimated, due to the revision of the reference percentages adopted for the local content policy of the industry oil company Source: The Globe
