    Argentina Gas & Oil Summit

    Tuesday 9th & Wednesday 10th April 2019 @ NH Hotel Buenos Aires

    The Argentina Gas & Oil Summit will serve as a platform to discuss the vast developments taking place across the industry and the growing opportunities the country has to offer across the Unconventional, Conventional & Offshore sectors

    With Argentina positioning itself as the most attractive prospect for shale development outside of North America, accelerating production and the mass development of resources have taken centre stage. As a new licensing round takes shape, providing a wealth of opportunities for IOC’s and NOC’s, the offshore market in Argentina also offers a huge amount of promise. With innovative technologies to enable enhanced oil recovery coming onto the market and technological advancements working to improve yield and reduce production costs, the industry is moving from strength to strength.

    The Argentina Oil & Gas Summit will serve as a platform to discuss the vast developments taking place across the industry and the growing opportunities the country has to offer across the Unconventional, Conventional & Offshore sectors. Encouraging increased international dialogue, partnerships for growth, investment, the importance of data & digitalisation and taking a strategic look at the supply chain, the Summit will provide a forum to discuss this expanding market.
