The GasLub's torch pilot flare system in Itaboraí will be lit for the first time during tests between the 26th (yesterday) and the 29th of November, from 9am to 8pm. The equipment has the function of guaranteeing the burning of the residual gases when the UPGN - natural gas processing unit goes into operation, being, therefore, a plant safety system.


During the tests, it will eventually be possible to see a small flame at the top of the torch tower. The ignition test of the pilot torch flame system is part of the construction schedule and was authorized by the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels, by the State Environmental Institute and by the Fire Department. The tests will be carried out with total safety, with no impact or risk to the surrounding communities.


The Integrated Route 3 Project, under construction in Itaboraí (RJ), will be the third route for the flow of natural gas production from Petrobras fields in the Santos Basin pre-salt and will have the capacity to process up to 21 million cubic meters of gas per day. The works for the Natural Gas Processing Unit (UPGN) are on schedule, as is the installation of the onshore gas pipeline that connects Maricá to the GasLub Pole in Itaboraí. The works are expected to be completed in 2021.
