Vaca Muerta-Loma Campana model
The Vaca Muerta-Loma Campana project is an unconventional oil & gas development located in the southwest of Argentina. It started operations in 2013.
Developing the latent Stage 2 model from solely total figures was a challenge Andres Knobel successfully went through.
This page contains the Vaca Muerta-Loma Campana Fiscal Model, the accompanying narrative report, and a short-form presentation.
● With current low prices the project is not viable without significant subsidies from government (for gas) and Argentinian consumers (for oil).
● If cost savings exceed 25% (versus 2013 predictions), the project may be viable without subsidies.
● Government should not contemplate fiscal regime concessions unless it is clear these are necessary to make an otherwise unviable project stay in business.
