from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM


Latin America is fast becoming the new frontier for shale extraction. Argentina’s shale reserves are estimated to be significantly larger than those in the USA and other countries such as Brazil and Mexico have also been identified as potentially very lucrative for unconventional extraction. Significant foreign investment is now needed to fully develop this potential. Foreign players are therefore presented with attractive new opportunities but are also confronted with uncertain regulatory environments, political and economic risk, local content requirements and the challenge of underdeveloped infrastructure. Join us to explore the lucrative opportunities available and assess how foreign players can overcome operational challenges and effectively manage risk. 8 reasons to attend: - Analyse the geological potential of key basins in Latin America - Assess the different regulatory frameworks in place in Latin America and attitudes towards regulatory risk - Compare contractual frameworks across the region and understand variations in concession contracts, production-sharing contracts and profit-sharing contracts - Examine infrastructure challenges across Latin America and what developments will be needed - Assess political, economic and expropriation risk in Argentina - Evaluate the opportunities available to foreign players in Mexico as energy reform legislation come into force - Explore Brazil’s shale potential and the opportunities available to foreign investors - Review varying local content requirements across the region and how these affect your operations
