Published:

Brazil's Petrobras has signed a deal with Praxair Inc. subsidiary White Martins to form a natural gas company. Petroleo Brasileiro, as Petrobras is formally known, will have a 40% stake in the new company, to be based in Sao Paulo state. White Martins will have a controlling 60% stake in the venture.

Under the terms of the agreement, White Martins will be responsible for building the new $38 million factory, scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2005.

It will seek to serve industrial clients in the states of Sao Paulo, Parana, Goias and Brasilia – areas currently without access to gas pipelines.
