Argentina risk profile


Argentina risk profile

Report summary

Argentina's economic difficulties are forcing the government to create a more favourable business environment. Risks for upstream companies therefore lean towards the upside – albeit with the proviso that the country could yet be hit by another economic crisis. Major challenges are the high level of government intervention and complex regulations, along with the volatile currency. However, wellhead prices are increasing and the country has well-developed infrastructure.

Description

Much of the world's resource-rich acreage tends to be located in politically volatile parts of the world. Sustainable growth for oil & gas companies often entails evaluating opportunities beyond familiar borders.

This country risk report provides risk analysis for the upstream oil and gas industry across the asset life cycle – from access through development and commercialisation. We leverage our on-the-ground risk intelligence to assess and forecast risk along 21 risk factors out to 2020.

Potential investors, governments and companies in the oil and gas sector can use it to gain a better understanding of the critical risk issues at a country and basin level (on high-profile basins) to define entry or exit strategies. Use it for opportunity screenings and to develop risk mitigation strategies.
