Oil & Gas Exhibition, Argentina

With 100 years of experience, and more than 66,000 wells drilled, Argentina’s oil and gas industry has become one of the safest and cleanest in the world.

The country’s estimates in terms of the potential of shale gas and shale oil have set the grounds for a new energy outlook. The United States Energy Information Administration (EIA) ranks the country as the second global power in shale gas, and the fourth in shale oil, with 802 tcf (trillion cubic feet) of technically recoverable gas resources and 27,000 million barrels. It is feasible that the development of unconventional resources multiplies the current gas reserves by 40 times, and the oil reserves by 10 times, thus allowing a significant increase in production.

Every two years, the Argentine Oil and Gas Institute (IAPG) organizes the Argentina Oil & Gas Expo, which brings together the most renowned specialists to design development strategies that will allow the industry to continue to drive the highest business volume worldwide. This Exhibition is considered to be one of the main events of the hydrocarbon industry in the region. It is highly regarded in the international oil, gas and related industries’ markets.

This year the exhibition hosted 250 companies across an area covering 35,000 square meters, and welcomed more than 20,000 professionals. FirePro’s partner in Argentina, Georgia Matafuegos participated in the Exhibition, and actively engaged together with FirePro Business Development Manager, Mr. Nikolaos Argyropoulos in the promotion of the FirePro technology, products and solutions., was also present at the event to assist in.
