Feb. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Antonio Brufau, chairman of Repsol YPF SA, said Argentine government accusations that its YPF SA unit wasn’t doing enough to boost production are unjust and that threatened sanctions had a “doubtful legal basis,” Clarin reported.
Brufau made the comments in a meeting of the company’s board on Feb. 23, when directors barred three politicians from entering the meeting, triggering further government criticism, the Buenos Aires-based newspaper said.
YPF, Argentina’s largest energy company, invested a record amount last year, Brufau said, refuting government complaints, Clarin reported.
