Might Petrobras' dominance of Brazilian LNG wane?

Report summary

In Brazil's November 2014 power auction, Grupo Bolognesi won bids to provide two integrated LNG-fired power plants and regas terminals by 2019.  If developed, these would be the first LNG import terminals built in Brazil without Petrobras' involvement. Together, the integrated power plants provide a potential market for up to 12 Mcm/d (3.2 mmtpa) of LNG supply. In combination with non-power markets, the regas terminals could to provide capacity for up to 28 Mcm/d (7.5 mmtpa) of LNG imports.
