    Is this an INDEC stat I wonder? LOL

    I like this bit.

    “You don't measure increases in oil output from one day to the next. You measure it in years,” he said. “Everything we do is long-term.”

    Yet they expected Repsol to increase output and invest immediately.

    I smell a rat.

    You know it's going to be BS numbers with an intro like this;

    'The latest data from Argentina's energy secretariat indicate...'

    Of course they increased production, yet funny how the entire country is in one constant and continual roving black out, no brown outs, black outs because they cannot fuel the power plants. I will believe this when the electricity is on consistently and continually.

    The overall figures indicate NO increase at all: up on oil down on gas (if the figures are true).

    This is what TMBOA went on TV last week to shout about and how 'we don't need foreigners to tell us how to run our businesses'.

    Yes, so what about the unknown method of fracking for the new discoveries: YPF going to come up with the answers? Of course, silly me THAT’S WHAT CHEVRON IS GOING TO DO!

    So everything is going steaming ahead!

    Ha, ha, ha.

    It's the comedy show that just keeps giving....

    Argentine stats are about as reliable as an Argentine manufactured Fiat!

    Lets see how well they are doing in a few years....

    With no significant fields being found they are just pumping more from the ones that were driled in the 80/90. Most companies what a 30yr depletion rate out of their wells.
    Do the math
    If they don't up their reserves immediately they are toast.

    Hello Khomeini want some soy for oil?

    Another chip for CFK. No more line up for gas at the gas station. I guess reporters aren't too bright or maybe they never consider history while writing BS. Keep up the good job CFK.

    Because Repsol weren't getting a fair price for the oil and gas they just turned the taps down. All YPF has done is turn them on full again. This will only provide a short term gain for them, and you also run the risk of depleating the reservoir pressure to quickly, damaging the field.

    Strangely enough I'm sitting in my car in a fuel queue and have been here for the last 3 and a half hours, and have still 150 metres to the petrol pumps!!!!

    This is in Neuquén, the major petroleum producing province of Argentina!!!!

    I'm afraid that we are not out of the woods yet, by a very long chalk!!!!!
