Argentina Neuquen exploration basin

Report summary

The asset report for the Argentina Neuquen exploration basin has been archived. This is because little conventional exploration has occurred since the last update (March 2013) and almost all current and future activity is in unconventional plays. Reports on unconventional activity are available, depending on subscription. A comprehensive update of this basin report will be carried out if and when activity necessitates it. However, should the basin be of interest to you from a conventional angle, please do not hesitate to contact enquiries@woodmac.com and we can discuss sharing Wood Mackenzie's latest views and information on the basin.

Description

Oil and gas exploration is an industry in constant motion, from technological breakthroughs to shifting supply and demand. The high costs of finding and developing new oil and gas fields that can be commercially developed has created a challenging atmosphere, with explorers increasingly seeing low returns, low value and slow progress.

This Exploration Basin report provides a detailed analysis of exploration of this basin, including discovery and development costs, location maps and information about licensing and fiscal terms. You'll also find information about discovery and development costs and full-cycle returns.

Explorers and advisors can use this report to understand the history and potential value of this basin.

Wood Mackenzie has access to historic data for over 450 basins and forecasts for more than 125 basins. We provide accurate information on the cost of exploration compared to the value of discoveries so that you can develop profitable strategies.

Our in-depth analysis gives you the information you need to navigate the ever-changing challenges of oil and gas exploration so you can make critical commercial decisions.
