Event to focus on legal aspects of the commercialization of Natural Gas, the use of the tool that compiles the norms of the sector, and the launch of a new site.

The Second RCGILex Workshop will be held on Friday, June 8, at 1:00 p.m. (register here). This tool compiles the Federal and State laws regarding Natural Gas (GN). The initiative seeks to promote a discussion of the main subjects and current regulatory situation of the sector, make users familiar with the tool, and announce the recently created RCGILex site, which complements the aggregate contents of the legal repository documents.

The event will be held at the headquarters of the FAPESP Shell Research Centre for Gas Innovation (RCGI), in the Polytechnic School of the University of São Paulo (Poli/USP), in the State’s capital city, and will be attended by 16 participants. Shell’s Technical Scientific Coordinator in the RCGI, Alexandre Breda, will take part via Skype.

Aspects connected with the commercialization of GN, as found in the Natural Gas Law, will be analyzed within the scope of the “Gas for Growth” initiative of the Substitution Bill PL6407/2013 (which modifies the Natural Gas Law). This event is organized by Professor Hirdan Katarina de Medeiros Costa, Coordinator of RCGI Project Number 21, who also organized the RCGILex.

“The workshops have been held since the month of May and will continue until November. One of the purposes is to familiarize the group of collaborators in Project 21 with the RCGILex tool, which was created to be an annotated repository of Brazilian and São Paulo State legislation regarding natural gas,” Hirdan said.
