The special report prepared by KPMG Argentina entitled “Oil & Gas Industry: four relevant aspects for 2017” analyzes the industry over the last few years and describes the challenges that will be faced in 2017. It highlights changes in the global scenario having an impact on the local oil industry. It states that despite changes in international crude oil prices, the global economy has failed to take off to boost the sustained growth needed to overcome the crisis and to provide predictability. The development perspectives announced and expected for non-conventional hydrocarbons and renewable resources are good and must be considered in the local scenario, as they are also part of the national energy matrix.
This special report prepared by KPMG Argentina analyzes the scenario of important investments in renewable energy in Latin America, which is an ideal opportunity for Argentina to take advantage of the drive arising from the enforcement of Law 27191.

Historically, the world’s biggest oil producers closely guarded their role as operator of their own fields — convinced they alone could deliver the engineering necessary to extract their oil on time and on budget. Increasingly, however, over recent decades those producers have been ceding that role — opting in many cases to manage their assets at arm’s length, and allowing the world’s increasingly sophisticated oilfield services companies to deliver cost-efficient production and, crucially, the oil-field innovation that Big Oil has long assumed it alone could deliver. The speed and manner in which this has occurred varies somewhat by geographic market.
The global liquefied natural gas (LNG) market is transforming. In early 2016, the US is expected to start LNG exports from the Gulf coast, a plot twist that was unthinkable even 10 years ago. Australia will soon be an exporter on a scale to rival Qatar. LNG importers are becoming exporters and vice versa, but low prices threaten new projects and the profitability of existing ones.
