The Preliminary Environmental Assessment (PEA) at Petrobras consists, in general terms, of an internal technical process, prior to environmental permitting, to verify the environmental feasibility of a project and identify the main environmental issues. It will also add to the future Environmental Impact Assessment Study (EIA). The technical guidelines for the PEA are prepared by the multidisciplinary team at the Petrobras Environmental Assessment Engineering Group (EAMB) of ENGENHARIA/IETEG/ETEG and are based on the characteristics of the project. The PEA is one of the elements of the environmental impact assessment, providing an initial assessment of the environmental aspects of the project (Screening). It also supports the assessment and determination of route and location alternatives of pipelines and industrial plants. The UTGCA (Caraguatatuba Gas Treatment Unit) will process gas and condensate from the Mexilha˜o Field, on Santos Basin – SP. This paper presents the procedures and conclusions of the PEA prepared for the UTGCA project by PETROBRAS/ENGENHARIA/IETEG/ETEG/EAMB.
