The Oil & Gas Year Argentina 2018
TOGY is pleased to present The Oil & Gas Year Argentina 2018, published in partnership with the Ministry of Energy and Mining and the Argentine Investment and Trade Promotion Agency, with the Federal Organisation of Hydrocarbons-Producing States and the Argentine Group of Suppliers for the Oil and Gas Industry as content partners.
This second edition covers the progress of President Mauricio Macri’s administration in the domestic oil and gas value chain, related to new policy initiatives, reforms and energy objectives. Key industry stakeholders from both the public and private sectors have provided insight into major developments across the value chain, shedding light on the path Argentina will take to capitalise on its great energy potential.
Oil and gas output has started to grow in 2018, and new measures aimed at raising production from mature and unconventional areas will likely give a much-needed boost to the E&P sector, as will efforts to auction offshore blocks in the near future. Vaca Muerta’s unconventional resources will continue to be key for both regulators and E&P players. Investment there will facilitate a stronger energy industry and economy overall, and the gains made in the play are expected to provide a boost for other sectors, including midstream, petrochemicals and power. Though more gas will soon be available for electricity generation, Argentina is also putting a lot of emphasis on renewable energy.
Despite the progress being made in the development of Argentina’s oil and gas industry, challenges loom overhead. As the economy transitions to more of a free market, some segments of society face financial troubles. The government is under pressure to tackle these issues ahead of 2019 elections
The Oil & Gas Year Argentina 2018 analyses the changing landscape of the domestic hydrocarbons industry. Key insiders interviewed for the book include Vice-President Gabriela Michetti, former Minister of Energy and Mining Juan José Aranguren, Federal Electricity Regulatory Agency president Andrés Chambouleyron, former Undersecretary of Hydrocarbons Resources Marcos Pourteau and YPF executives Pablo Bizzotto and Marcos Browne, as well as many top players operating in Argentina’s energy industry.
Extensive in-depth analysis is supported by comprehensive maps, illustrations and graphs to create a market guide essential for players seeking to either expand their operations or enter the Argentinian market.
