Tight oil plays in Argentina: it's not only the Vaca Muerta


Tight oil plays in Argentina: it's not only the Vaca Muerta

Report summary

In the context of a global slowdown in shale development, Argentina is as an outlier. It is one of the few places where shale activity has continued apace. This is primarily due to the government's policy to subsidise domestic oil prices, resulting in higher rates than the current Brent price. The focus on Vaca Muerta has overshadowed other unconventional plays that also hold oil potential: the Agrio and the Pozo D-129 formations.
