To efficiently operate the  Bolivia-Brazil Gas Pipeline, TBG is supported by specialized and trained professionals and a Supervision and Control Center that remotely operates the pipeline, via satellite, 24 hours per day. Our teams also periodically inspect the right-of-way, facilities and equipment.

For the continuously operation of the pipeline’s 2,593 km in Brazilian territory, TBG uses a risk management technique known as Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) which was introduced by the aviation industry.   

The Integrity Management Program, based on the international standard  B31.8S, by American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), rules the integrity management of natural gas pipelines in the United States. This stardand is not required in Brazil, however, TBG, aware of the best practices in the market, adopts routinely this American standard, focusing on the society, environment and safety.
