Share

Prumo, a private Brazilian company controlled by EIG Global Energy Partners, bp and Siemens signed a binding agreement with SPIC Brasil. Under the agreement, SPIC will initially acquire 33% of the GNA I and GNA II LNG-to-power projects, located in Port of Açu, Rio de Janeiro. SPIC has also entered into an agreement to participate in the future expansion projects GNA III and GNA IV, which are expected to be fueled by a combination of LNG and domestic gas from Brazil’s vast pre-salt reserves.

The closing of the agreement, scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2020, is subject to the fulfillment of certain conditions precedent usual to this type of transaction, among others.

GNA I and GNA II is the largest gas-to-power project in Latin America, with 3 GW of installed capacity — enough to supply energy for up to 14 million households. The complex also includes an LNG terminal with a total capacity of 21 million m3/ day. GNA I, which has an installed capacity of 1.3 GW, is expected to commence operations in the first half of 2021. The agreement improves the potential for expansion projects GNA III and GNA IV, the domestic gas hub strategy and renewables projects. The estimated total planned investment in the GNA gas and power complex is approximately US$ 5 billion.

SPIC Brasil's contribution to this partnership is centered on its expertise in operation and project management strategy in Brazil. Siemens – via its financing arm, Siemens Financial Services, and in close cooperation with Siemens Energy – will contribute capital, innovative technology and its expertise managing similar projects. In addition, bp will contribute its global portfolio of LNG acting as a key integrated and innovative gas supplier and Prumo contributes the entire port infrastructure, operations, project development and integration. The partnership facilitates the expansion of a range of projects and demonstrates a commitment to completing the investments that are under development.

BofA Securities and Lakeshore Partners acted as financial advisors of GNA and its sponsors. Itaú BBA acted as exclusive financial advisor of SPIC. Mattos Filho acted as legal advisors of GNA and its sponsors. Trench Rossi Watanabe acted as legal advisors of SPIC.

Evobrutinib is the First and Only BTK Inhibitor to Demonstrate Reduction of a Key Biomarker of Neuronal Damage and Inflammation in Patients with MS16.4.2021 10:00:00 CEST | Press release

Merck, a leading science and technology company, will present data from a Phase II placebo-controlled randomized trial at the 2021 American Academy of Neurology (AAN) Annual Meeting showing that the investigational Bruton’s tyrosine kinase (BTK) inhibitor evobrutinib significantly reduced blood neurofilament light chain (NfL) levels, a key biomarker of neuronal damage and inflammation, in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Elevated blood NfL levels have been shown to be associated with damage to neurons and inflammation and may predict future brain atrophy and disease progression. “Blood NfL is a biomarker that may allow monitoring of disease activity and treatment response, which could be less burdensome and more sensitive than other standard clinical measures for MS patients,” said Prof. Jens Kuhle, MD, PhD, Head Multiple Sclerosis Centre, University Hospital Basel. “These data provide key insights into the role evobrutinib may play in modulating the clinical course of MS and fur
