Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) January 24, 2013
Infocast, the provider of cutting-edge business intelligence and networking events in the oil and gas industry, is proud to announce its inaugural Argentinian events this year. The Water Management for Shale Plays conference and Frac Supply Chain Summit will take place on April 16-18, 2013 in Buenos Aires as co-located events. In the midst of Argentina’s growing unconventional oil and gas industry, both are must-attend events to maximize profit from the increasingly available opportunities.
A major discovery of an enormous deposit of gas and oil in Argentina’s La Vaca Muerta has caught the attention of the oil and gas industry around the world. The Neuquén basin could increase the country’s oil reserves by over 750 million barrels. The region is also estimated to have 4.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
However, Argentina faces number of challenges when it comes to hydraulic fracturing. Sold-out numerous times in the United States, the popular conference series Water Management for Shale Plays will provide E&Ps, field service organizations, water technology companies, engineers and others with a unique forum to meet, learn about issues and get valuable solutions for cost-effective water management from other successful shale plays.
Additionally, the pace of development has been much slower than in U.S. plays due to logistical challenges and isolated drilling sites. Service providers, operators and all players active in this play must work closely together with careful planning. The Frac Supply Chain Summit will allow Argentine E&P operators to meet with supply chain service providers, including rail, trucking and logistics. Furthermore, leading suppliers of proppants, oil field chemicals and minerals, as well as experts from the oilfield services industry, will be there to build the critical relationships needed to create a stable supply chain to support Argentina’s oil and gas industry.
