  • Opportunities Open for Huge Argentine Shale Gas Reserves as Quest Begins for Onshore LNG

    Recent presidential elections in Argentina have brought the center-left Peronist party back to power and added a measure of uncertainty to the country’s promising oil and gas sector for investors.

It is therefore a critical time for Argentina to consolidate recent achievements and demonstrate it has the institutional, technical and regulatory wherewithal to offer large-scale supplies to the global market and become a leading player in natural gas.
