  • 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. Over the past two years, reductions in drilling and development cost and enhanced production coupled with regulatory reform have positioned the country’s natural sector for expansion. In a very short time span, exploitation of the world’s second largest shale formation, Vaca Muerta, has not only helped fulfill domestic requirements reducing the need for imports, but has enabled Argentine gas to once again reach regional markets. 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.
