Right-of-way

FaixadeServid_o redimensionada 2.jpg
 

The right-of way is a 20-meter wide strip of land where the Pipepline is buried. This area is a right of passage granted by Federal Decree from 08/28/1996 and is essential for the safety and protection of the Pipeline. The pipes are buried at an average depth of 1 meter. To protect them from possible damages, the right-of-way must be always signposted and with free accesses in its whole extension.

 

The right-of-way: 

 
  • Delimits and protects the Pipeline route; 
  • Identifies the places with installed  equipment;   
  • Signs the places where excavations, constructions, occupancy and clearing land by burning are forbidden.  
 
Right-of-way Signposting

All the signposts in the right-of-way are planned so that the nearby community knows the precise location of TBG’s Pipeline.

1- Landmarks show the right-of-way limits;

2- Kilometer markers are placed along the Pipeline;

3- Signposts announce the existence of the buried pipeline, with safety warnings and signaling road and railway, transmission lines and river, lake and lagoon crossings.

The landmarks and signposts are owned by TBG* and must be preserved. If removed or damaged, they will impair TBG technicians’ routine or emergency interventions and prevent third party’s identification of the place where the Pipeline is buried.
 
(*) The intentional destruction of goods or properties of others may be qualified as crime, according to Art. 163 of the Criminal Code.
 
Right-of-way inspections

Three types of inspections are carried out: 

  • From air, by helicopter; 
  • Underwater, made by divers at the crossings with rivers and lakes;  
  • From land, carried out along the pipes, by right-of-way inspectors.
