The ES-Mucuri Gas Pipeline is one of several new gas pipelines proposed in the Brazilian government's November 2019 plan for offshore gas infrastructure development. The proposed pipeline would bring gas from the post-salt fields of the Espírito Santo-Mucuri basin to an onshore gas processing facility on the coast of Espírito Santo state.[1]

Two versions of the pipeline have been proposed: ES-Mucuri A and ES-Mucuri B. The ES-Mucuri A proposal calls for construction of an 155-kilometer, 14-inch pipeline with an estimated development cost of R$ 3.1 billion (3.1 billion Brazilian reais) and the capacity to transport 12 million cubic meters of natural gas per day to a new gas processing facility to be constructed at the Port of Imetame. The ES-Mucuri B alternative would bring gas to Petrobras's existing gas processing facility at Cacimbas.[1]
