    With an oil belt seeming to run right round the S Atlantic, has any drilling been done in (undisputed) Argentinian waters.

    Or did they just miss out!

    Who would invest in those waters? Your Government has chased everyone away that was willing to invest with massive inflation, and restrictions on the movement of company profits out of Argentina.

    There are much better places to invest.

    This is interesting.According to Wikileaks releases of Stratfor information Brazil will (within limits) support Argentinian claims to the Falklands as they 'do not want the UK near Brazil's oil and gas prospects'.

    At first this looks odd as the deep South Atlantic is nowhere near Brazil. Then when you look at what they say about the oil deposits near Angola and the oil bearing strata running across the Atlantic does it mean they think there could be prospects mid Atlantic . And what is there mid Atlantic between Brazil and Angola but a series of British islands with a potential 200 mile EEZ .(Ascension,Saint Helena, Tristan Da Cunha).

    Would Brazil do an Argentina and discover a long lost claim to those islands. Probably not! Brazil is a much more mature and grown up country than Argentina .
    Maybe interesting possibilities for the future !
