Understand the natural gas cycle

Natural gas is a fuel coming from the lighter fractions of the oil produced in onshore and offshore sedimentary basins. The consumption of this important source of energy, for which there are various uses, is on the increase worldwide. Natural gas is used as fuel at the thermal power plants that complement Brazil's energy needs. It is also converted to urea, ammonia, and other products used as feedstock in various industries. Additionally, it is used as fuel in transport and as a source of energy at homes and industries.
