The Canadian Council for the Americas Alberta (CCA Alberta) in partnership the Petroleum Services Association of Canada (PSAC), The Canadian Global Exploration Forum (CGEF), Global Affairs Canada and The Government of Alberta, is pleased to invite you to our upcoming CCA Alberta series program:
“QUE PASA IN ARGENTINA”
Argentina is a market that has been of great interest for the oil and gas industry in Alberta derived from the expertise that Alberta companies have in unconventional resources. The significant reserves in Oil & Gas in the area of Vaca Muerta combined with the need of developing Argentina’s unconventional resources create a significant area of potential mutual business opportunities.
We have extended invitations to main players in the Argentinian market to present to Alberta companies their specific technological requirements to identify potential business opportunities for Argentinean and Alberta companies. This presentation will also provide companies attending the Alberta Canadian mission to Argentina in November with a better perspective on those conventional and unconventional technologies that exist in Alberta and the specific needs that the Argentina’s Oil and Gas industry requires. To make this visit to Alberta very productive we are coordinating with our partners a business and technological tour that will include B2B meetings and site visits to Alberta operations.
