YPF is at the heart of Argentina’s efforts to reduce its annual energy deficit and become a net oil exporter. “We are presenting an investment plan and working to put more resources at the service of production,” company president Pablo Gonzalez said in a statement.

YPF’s investment plan for this year is a 73% increase on last year, when the company was hit hard by falling oil prices sparked by lower demand amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The company carried out a multi-billion-dollar bond restructuring earlier this year.
