Vaca Muerta tight oil unconventional play

Report summary

Argentina's liquids production has been in decline for over 10 years now, and the country is on path to become a net oil importer by 2016. Conventional fields are getting increasingly mature, and attention has turned to the country's unconventional potential.  Argentina's most prospective tight oil play is located in its most prolific conventional hydrocarbon region, the Neuquén basin.
