The Thermoelectric Complex Parnaíba is located in the Maranhao State. This project is the largest natural gas-fueled thermoelectric power complex in Brazil and is made-up by four plants; together they reach 845 MW. The plants are synchronized with the Interconnected National System (SIN). The natural gas supplied to the plants of the Parnaíba Complex plants comes from the production wells in the Parnaíba Basin, and represents approximately 40% of the Brazilian onshore production. This project was inaugurated in 2013. But it has being built since 2009 supported by different financial sources such as World Bank and Brazilian Development Bank (BNDES). It is s a joint venture between MPX (ENEVA), OGX Maranhão and Petra Energia S.A. It was built by Duro Felguera (Spain). In 2011, OGX Maranhão (ENEVA) receives the preliminary license for the Natural Gas Production in the Parnaíba Basin. During the construction of the project, traditional communities (quilombolas and quebradeiras de coco babaçu) together with local and national organizations (Sociedade Maranhense de Direitos Humanos (SMDH), Asociaçao de Mulheres Quebradeiras de Coco (AMUQUEC) and other EJOS put a demand for ask for compensation and denouncing damage in the environment , shortage of palms of coco babaçu (main activity of women along the forest), noise pollution, pollution of rivers where fishermen used to fish, water scarcity and damage to their livelihoods. According to the communities denouncing the facts, one person affected by noise and stress committed suicide. There also some supporters such as priesst and Asamblea de Deus organization. Beyond the judicial demand, some actions such as public demonstrations, damage to the company´s property and blockages were also deployed. In 2014, the court decided in favor of the local communities and forced the company (ENEVA) to resettle the affected families; "In a non-renewable period of 180 days. To be made effective resettlement, under appropriate conditions, all the families affected by the Parnaíba Thermoelectric Complex. The process must comply with the conditions stipulated in the resettlement plan approved by the SEMA, the environmental impact assessment and the agreement signed with the affected people." In 2015-2016 the company has begun the resettlements but the livelihoods of the communities have extremely changed and the pollution continues.
