Agrio tight oil unconventional play

Agrio tight oil unconventional play

Report summary

Since the discovery of the Vaca Muerta shale in 2011, Argentina has been one of the few non-US countries to continue to host unconventional activity. The Agrio shale offers light oil potential in a country where crude prices are regulated by the government and are currently higher than international oil markers. Nearly the entire play area is thought to be liquids-rich with thermal maturity values pointing to a large oil generation window.
