Neuquén basin tight gas unconventional play

Report summary

The Neuquén Basin has supported an active petroleum industry for decades and is the most relevant gas producer basin. Tight gas layers are found at different depths and correspond to different geological ages. In this report, we analyse the economics for the Lajas and Mulichinco formations. Wood Mackenzie’s asset reports are built from the bottom up, incorporating a number of granular data metrics to ultimately produce our industry standard cash operating costs. This report contains a detailed note giving you a holistic view of the asset, including an operational overview through to a timeline of events from inception to now. This qualitative analysis is supplemented by the associated Excel download which enables interrogation of a whole series of cost and production metrics over the life of the asset.
