Argentina is home to one of the biggest shale formations on the planet, Vaca Muerta. Vaca Muerta is the main non-conventional hydrocarbon formation in Argentina, growing exponentially thanks to more than $4 billion in annual investment, and heavy IOC activity. The formation occupies an area of 36,000 km2, with resources estimated at 16 billion barrels of oil and 308 cubic feet of gas. The shale play is driving innovation through the commercial production of shale oil and gas, with many operators joining together to benefit from this massive opportunity.
Numerous exploration and production blocks have been given to key international companies, including: Chevron, Petrobras, Total, Petrogas, ExxonMobil, Shell, Wintershal, Pan American Energy and many more.
