Report summary

On 8 June 2014, YPF announced that its unconventional project in the Loma Campana area within the Neuquén Basin was producing 24,000 boed from 198 wells. Additionally, the company revealed that it has 22 active rigs in the project, representing the largest, most aggressive non-US unconventional drilling programme to date. We have benchmarked this project against three other world class shale plays, and on all metrics, the Loma Campana project looks attractive.
