Argentina is one of the major oil and gas-producing nations in the world. The country has the fourth-largest shale oil reserves and the world's second-largest shale gas reserves in the world. Post the discovery and exploration of the Vaca Muerta formation, the oilfield equipment, and oilfield services market have gained momentum due to the increased exploration and drilling activities.
The increased exploration and drilling activities in the Vaca Muerta and proactive steps being taken by the government to increase revenue from the country's oil and gas industry are some of the major drivers of the Argentina oilfield services and equipment market.
The Vaca Muerta shale formation, located in the western Neuquen province of Argentina, is the world's second-largest shale gas reserve and the fourth-largest shale oil reserve. and holds the promise of reducing Argentina's roughly 20% reliance on expensive foreign natural gas imports.
The increased production of Vaca Muerta has allowed Argentina to reduce energy imports by USD 4 billion in value terms during the winter of 2021.
Vaca Muerta could nearly double Argentina's crude oil production to 1 million barrels per day by 2026, allowing exports to exceed 500,000 barrels per day by then, up from less than 100,000 barrels per day now.
Gas production, which is currently at 130 million cubic meters/d, could increase even further, making Argentina a competitor to Australia and Qatar in the LNG market at a time of rising demand for natural gas as the world is moving towards net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Only 4% of the 35,000 km2 territory of non-conventional resources in Vaca Muerta is currently in a massive development phase. Argentina's gas and oil resources in its large offshore platform, which covers approximately 500,000 km2, are yet to be explored.
The promising oil and gas potential of the Vaca Muerta is expected to see a rise in exploration and drilling thereby driving the Argentina oilfield service market.
Argentina's energy regulatory framework aims to increase market certainty and attract more foreign investment in order to increase oil and gas production for export. Given the country's broader economic challenges, the Argentine government at both the federal and provincial levels is taking a more active role in critical industries such as energy, mining, and transportation. The Argentine government wants the energy sector to be a major driver of exports, increase foreign exchange liquidity, and attract foreign direct investment, which will lead to economic growth.
The development of a gas and energy transition-focused industry, generating new projects and incoming LNG investment, is one of the top priorities on Argentina's energy agenda.
Furthermore, with the Transandean Pipeline refurbishment nearing completion, the country is positioning itself to begin exporting gas to its neighbors, increasing exports to Chile, and fueling the country's own gas expansion initiatives.
In addition to Chile, Argentina is negotiating with Brazil to build a USD 1 billion pipeline connecting the Vaca Muerta shale gas reserves with the country, exposing Vaca Muerta to an ever-expanding market.
In 2020, the government launched "Plan Gas.Ar," a natural gas plan aimed at increasing domestic production while decreasing gas imports. The Plan establishes a framework for ensuring access to foreign exchange as well as government support for increased oil and gas output.
