The Argentina Energy Transition Summit serve as a platform to discuss the vast developments taking place across the industry and the latest opportunities the country has to offer across the unconventional & conventional oil and gas sector, renewables and hydrogen production.

Agenda

“ The summit will focus upon the appetencies within the O&G and renewables sectors in Argentina particularly paying attention at how Argentina can develop its energy resources to deal with its internal demand and become exporter of LNG and hydrogen in the future. ”

With Covid-19 having a huge impact globally reducing exploration and production, with Vaca Muerta the 2nd largest shale gas reserve in the world and the Oil and Gas Majors looking to diversify their assets and reduce their carbon footprint.

The summit will discuss how Argentina’s oil and gas reserves can assist with its energy demand whilst still follow the principles of Paris Climate Change agreement. We will look at current and forthcoming projects across the renewables sector and the opportunities within grey, blue and green hydrogen production.

The Argentina Energy Transition Summit will bring together 300+ key stakeholders from across the energy sector, including central & local government, operators, asset owners, service & solution providers, leading academia and investors.

The summit will focus upon the appetencies within the O&G and renewables sectors in Argentina particularly paying attention at how Argentina can develop its energy resources to deal with its internal demand and become exporter of LNG and hydrogen in the future.
