YPF announces new shale oil find in Neuquen-Mendoza area
The discovery was made at the Agrio formation, according to CEO Miguel Galuccio, who said at a press conference that production operations will be carried from the neighboring province of Mendoza.
"It's the third time we've discovered oil at a non-conventional (shale) well," Galuccio said, adding that the find "could be very significant for Mendoza, which has very mature fields."
"I was there until 2:00 a.m. waiting for the well to be cleaned; that's why we still can't provide the production level, but we think it's going to be very significant." ■
