What is the New Gas Market 

The New Gas Market is the Federal Government's program that aims to create an open, dynamic and competitive natural gas market, promoting conditions to reduce its price and thereby contribute to the country's economic development.


Coordinated by the Ministry of Mines and Energy and developed jointly with the Civil House of the Presidency of the Republic, the Ministry of Economy, the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels (ANP), the Energy Research Company (EPE) and the Council Administrative Defense of Economic Defense (Cade), the Program covers measures for all links in the natural gas value chain, from the flow of production to distribution, respecting the competence of the States for the regulation of local piped gas services. The measures are aimed at more efficient use of existing infrastructure, attracting new investments and promoting competition in the natural gas market.
