"Argentina Petrochemicals Report 2016" is now available at Fast Market Research

The steady decline in hydrocarbons production in Argentina led to a shortage of feedstock in recent years with a lack of both ethane and methane. As the Vaca Muerta shale reserves become more available, there is potential for rejuvenating the petrochemicals sector. This should resolve domestic shortages.

Petrochemicals growth in Argentina will not happen immediately and new infrastructure will be crucial. Only in the next two to three years will Argentina be at a point where it can even start thinking about new petrochemicals projects. The new administration of Mauricio Macri is set to shake up the business environment, making it more attractive to investors with the potential for lower feedstock costs as well as market liberalisation.

The Argentine government is hoping a new generation of fields in the southern region of Tierra del Fuego will help to offset falling gas output from the mature basins in the west and northwest of the country. Argentina similarly has high hopes for offshore acreage. While worries over the regulatory environment, tensions with the Falkland Islands and the region's resource potential had previously largely stymied investment, things are beginning to look up.

The success of the development of the Vaca Muerta formation would secure the competitiveness of the Argentine petrochemicals industry at a time when shale-based petrochemicals from the US are due to swamp the local market. However, the industry is at least two to three years from a decision point on any new shale-based plant and it would take another three to five years before additional capacity is built.
