YPF, Pan American Energy and Total Austral and Wintershall to Invest $1.15 Billion at Vaca Muerta

YPF, Pan American Energy (PAE), Total Austral and Wintershall signed an agreement to jointly invest $1.15 billion through end-2021 in unconventional E&P at the Aguada Pichana and Aguada de Castro (ACAS) areas in Neuquén province. The consortium will seek to ramp up natural gas output from the Vaca Muerta shale deposit through the deal. Aguada Pichana is divided into two sub-blocks: the Total-operated Aguada Pichana Este (APE) and PAE-operated Aguada Pichana Oeste (APO). BP-controlled PAE is also the operator of Aguada de Castro. Of the total, $675 million is allocated for APE, with the remaining $475 million earmarked for APO and ACAS. The consortium plans to drill 48 horizontal wells at APE, and 24 horizontal wells at APO and ACAS. Investment at the latter two areas will also include surface infrastructure to transport gas output to a processing facility at APE.
