Challenges in Latin America

Some of the challenges the Latin American region has faced since the rapid growth of the industry in the early 2000’s include:

  • Difficulty to expand operations into neighboring countries with different local regulations, maintaining compliance as well as efficiency and profitability
  • Infrastructure bottlenecks such as ground transportation, pipeline capacity, and port facilities
  • Political Instability
  • Young but rapidly growing offshore exploration initiative requiring leading edge technology, know-how, and best practices sharing
  • Consolidation efforts by local players with an international agenda requiring more transparency and control of their operations, through a robust accounting system manages that handles finances, operations, business intelligence, workflow management, and supplier partner relationships
  • Non-Conventionals
    • Declining reserves, most peaking prior to 2005
    • Partnering for the maturation of Non-Conventional activity performed by the more experienced and financially capable players due to the intense drilling environment required.
    • Performing accurate seismic evaluation, G&G data, and access to technology
    • Mitigating Environmental Impact
