Neuquén basin tight gas unconventional play

Neuquén basin tight gas unconventional play

Report summary

The Neuquén Basin has supported an active petroleum industry for decades and currently produces more than 50% of Argentina's gas. In addition to tight oil from the Vaca Muerta, there are several formations with tight gas potential. 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.

Production from unconventional oil and gas resources has had an enormous impact on North America’s recovery from economic recession. The success there has led to a shift in the upstream oil and gas industry. Other countries are investing in the industry in the hope they will reap similar benefits for their economies.

This Upstream Oil and Gas Unconventional Play report provides a detailed analysis of geology, reserves, production and commercial issues, including cost of supply, access and fiscal terms.

Potential investors, governments and companies in the oil and gas sector can use this unconventional play report to get a better understanding of critical issues with this play.
