RIO DE JANEIRO—As Brazil works to overhaul its natural gas sector, aiming to put gas—including associated gas from presalt fields—to use, the U.S. Trade & Development Agency (USTDA) is eyeing the country as an opportunity for American companies in the energy sector.

According to Gabrielle Mandel, the Brazil and Paraguay country manager for USTDA, the agency will fund a reverse trade mission to the U.S. in response to the opening of Brazil’s gas market.

“The technical visit will focus on midstream and downstream gas technologies for Brazilian distribution companies, including pipeline automation, expansion, LNG sources of supply and regasification,” she said during the recently held CWC Brazil & the Americas Gas Summit in Rio de Janeiro.
