Unconventional Gas in Argentina: Will it become a Game Changer?
Argentina clearly has a world-class shale gas resource and its ‘crown jewel’ is the Vaca Muerta play. How such a resource might be developed and linked to global gas trade flows in terms, for example, of reducing Argentina’s LNG import requirements is a complex multi-vector issue. This paper by Ieda Gomes and Roberto Brandt provides a comprehensive analysis of Argentina’s gas prospects based on a deep contextual understanding of the country’s hydrocarbon history, the changing regulatory and political framework of oil and gas production and its changing attractiveness, or otherwise, for IOC investment, and the outlook for the future.
