Preventative Archaeology Plan, Brazil

A key component of São Paulo's pipeline master plan included the installation of Caraguatatuba-Vale do Paraiba pipelines I and II. Before the development could get approved, a preventative archaeology plan was required. We managed this, covering archaeological prospecting, heritage education, monitoring and evaluation of cultural and historic records.

The pipelines will transfer liquefied petroleum gas and C5+ from the Monteiro Lobato Gas Treatment Unit to the Henrique Lage Refinery. Petrobras Petróleo SA commisioned Azevedo and Travassos Ltda. for the construction.


Obtaining authorisation from the National Institute of Historic and Artistic Heritage (IPHAN) to begin the construction phase was essential. We worked to a very tight deadline.


Our technical team was quickly mobilised to develop the preventive archaeology plan, which was necessary to obtain the license. Although the plan was developed in such short time, its high standard enabled IPHAN to immediately authorise the construction.

Values and benefits

The implementation of the preventive archaeology plan contributed to the protection of the historical and archaeological heritage. The heritage educational activities undertaken increased awareness among workers involved in the construction phase and members of the community.
