In Brazil, Petrobras is constructing a 530-mile ethanol pipeline to link the main ethanol- producing regions in Minas Gerais and São Paulo to the large consuming centers of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. The pipeline will have capacity to transport 21 MMcm/a. The first section will extend 125 miles from Ribeirão Preto to Paulinia.

The pipeline should be brought online in 2014.
