In 2017, a Brookfield-led consortium acquired a 90% stake in Nova Transportadora do Sudeste SA (NTS). NTS is a well-located natural gas transportation system that spans more than 2,000 kilometers and connects key markets in Brazil, including São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais. These states alone account for more than 50% of Brazil’s natural gas demand.
NTS's operational capabilities span construction, installation, operation and maintenance of gas pipelines in Brazil's Southeast, providing safe and sustainable transportation of natural gas in the country's most industrialized region. The company connects shippers, who own the natural gas, to distributors, who deliver the gas to end consumers. The natural gas pipeline network has a contracted capacity to transport 158.2 million cubic meters of gas per day.
