NTS (Nova Transportadora do Sudeste S/A - NTS) transports natural gas through a solid gas pipeline system, safely and reliably connecting Brazil's most industrialized region.
More than 2,000 kilometers of pipelines with transport contractual capacity of 158.2 million m³ of gas per day. NTS pipelines link the states of Rio de Janeiro, Minas Gerais and São Paulo (responsible for approximately 50% of gas consumption in Brazil) with the Bolivia-Brazil pipeline, GNL terminals and gas processing plants.
The company operates long-term authorizations with 100% contracted capacity (by ship or pay mode).
NTS was created from a Statement of Commitment signed with the Brazilian National Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels Agency (“ANP”), in which Petrobras has committed to restructure the Transportadora Associada de Gás (TAG) and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, in order to create a natural gas carrier in southeastern Brazil (NTS) and another in the North-Northeast (NTN).
On April 4, 2017, Petrobras concluded the sale of 90% of its shares in NTS to Nova Infraestrutura Fundo de Investimentos em Participações Multiestratégia (“FIP”), managed by Brookfield Brasil Asset Management Investimentos Ltda., a company affiliated to Brookfield Asset Management. On the same date, FIP conducted the sale of part of its shares in NTS to Itaúsa S.A. (Itaúsa).
On April 30, 2021, the purchase of all shares held by Petrobras, corresponding to 10% of the Company's shares, by Nova Infraestrutura Gasodutos Participações S.A. (NISA), a company that had FIP and Itaúsa as its shareholders, was concluded. As of this transaction, NISA was holding the shares corresponding to 10% of NTS share capital, replacing the stake previously held by Petrobras, which is no longer a Company shareholder.
On April 12, 2022, the merger of NISA into NTS was approved, being FIP and Itaúsa the shareholders of NTS now.

NTS invests in continuous improvement and the highest safety standards in its operations. Proof of this is the recovery of one of ECOMP Guararema's motor compressors (MC-A) - the only station with gas compressors driven by high voltage electric motors. Activities for the resumption of equipment began after the insourcing of activities by NTS, and ended at the end of June 2022.
