The Route 6 Gas Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline off the Atlantic coast of southeastern Brazil.
The proposed pipeline would run west from Brazil's offshore pre-salt fields to Porto Central in the municipality of President Kennedy, Espírito Santo state.

In May 2019 Brazil's Secretary of Oil and Gas of the Ministry of Mines and Energy, Márcio Félix, stated Petrobras is considering building more pipeline networks, which will be called Route 4, 5 and 6. The 120-kilometer Route 6 pipeline would transport 10 to 15 million cubic meters of natural gas per day from the pre-salt fields off Brazil's southeastern coast to the Porto Central facility in Espírito Santo state, a joint venture between Port of Rotterdam and TPK Logística that received its environmental license in 2018.
