The evolution of unconventional resource development in Latin America has begun. There are numerous logistical challenges associated with well construction, well stimulation, and facilities - but the scale of unconventional resource opportunities in Latin America is enormous, particularly with the Vaca Muerta play, which rivals any play currently in development in North America. This panel will consider the Vaca Muerta play specifically, but it will also address unconventional opportunities in Latin America in general.
