Argentina’s La Vaca Muerta in the Neuquén Basin is estimated to have 750 million barrels of oil and 4.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, potentially making Argentina the world’s third-largest oil and gas provider.
Nevertheless, hydraulic fracturing in Argentina faces serious challenges, in particular water supplies in the arid Neuquén Basin. A typical deep drilled shale well can take up to 4-5 million gallons of water. Additionally, water transportation, storage and disposal pose further challenges that need to be overcome.
Infocast’s highly successful U.S. conference series Water Management for Shale Plays has sold out numerous times in the United States, and is now debuting in Argentina. This is the only Water Management for Shale Plays event in Argentina. It promises to bring together international E&Ps, field service providers and water technology companies to network and gain insights derived from best practices implemented in other successful shale plays, and provide costeffective solutions to the country’s water challenges.
