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 Term of Commitment signed with Agência Nacional do Petróleo, Gás Natural e Biocombustíveis [Brazilian National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuel] (ANP), in which Petrobras committed to restructure the Associated Gas Transporter (TAG) and its wholly owned subsidiaries to create a natural gas carrier in Southeastern Brazil (NTS) and another in the North-Northeast (NTN).
On April 04, 2017, Petrobras completed the sale operation of 90% of its shares in NTS to the New Infrastructure Private Equity Investment Funds (FIP), managed by Brookfield Brasil Asset Management Investimentos Ltda., an affiliate of Brookfield Asset Management. On the same date, FIP sold part of its shares in NTS to Itaúsa - Investimentos Itaú S.A.
