Learn more about Compass
We are Compass, a company created to expand and diversify the gas market in Brazil, promoting greater security and competitiveness across the energy grid.
We do this anchored on our values: Transparent, Connected and Audacity.
Our story began in 2012, with the acquisition of Comgás by Cosan. Since then, we have created a winning business model that enabled us to increase the number of clients and expand the gas pipeline network.
Based on all the knowledge and experience in managing Comgás, we created Compass in March 2020 to offer options for an increasingly free gas and energy market in Brazil. In three years of history, we have already invested nearly R$9 billion in Brazil’s natural gas market.
Natural gas is safe, competitive and less pollutant, which makes it strategically important for Brazil’s energy transition, fostering free competition and the country’s development. In this scenario of numerous opportunities, Compass, with its unique strategic portfolio of assets, offers solutions for the supply of natural gas with excellence and security.
Our operations are currently grouped into two segments: Distribution and Marketing & Services.
We operate through two vehicles. In addition to Comgás, Brazil’s largest natural gas distributor, we have a solid portfolio with equity interest in 11 other gas distributors managed by the company controlled by us, Commit, an investee that also holds interest in the Japanese conglomerate Mitsui. The assets managed by Commit are organized in clusters in Brazil’s Northeast (Norgás) and Center-South regions, where it has Sulgás, whose controlling interest was acquired from the State of Rio Grande do Sul in early 2022, as well as Necta, Commit’s direct subsidiary. In the other distributors, Commit holds non-controlling interest and, together with its partners, has been working on synergy and alignment, implementing the best management practices.Know More
Segment that offers natural gas supply alternatives, ensuring safety and flexibility, promoting decarbonization among all its clients, whether they are connected to the distribution grid or are off-grid, transporting other energy products via highways (LNG B2B).
The third quarter of 2023 marked the launch of operations in this segment, with its assets organized under the “Edge” brand. Its business model consists of strategic assets such as the São Paulo Regasification Terminal (TRSP), located in Santos, and biomethane assets and contracts (e.g.: recently announced purification plant in partnership with Orizon) and LNG B2B, all managed by Edge in an integrated manner to maximize efficiency and synergies.Know More
