Title: Will Shale Gas Transform Argentina's Energy Sector?

Neuquén Basin
Abstract: In December, Repsol YPF announced a 4.5 trillion cubic feet discovery of shale gas in Argentina's Neuquén Basin. According to the company, the find expands YPF's proven reserves from six years to 16 years. What is the potential to exploit shale gas resources in Argentina? How does the recovery of shale gas differ from traditional oil and gas reserves? What new regulations and rules will Argentina need to adopt as a result of the find? Will the shale gas discovery have a significant effect on the country's domestic capacity and its potential to export energy to neighboring countries? Experts discuss what they think about this topic.
