Cluster Shale Neuquen 2013 is aimed at consolidating a whole new approach to the development of unconventional resources. It reinforces the concept of SHALE & SHARE as the only viable way to achieve such development in an efficient and sustainable manner.

There is an actual need of a strong and strategic association between the public, private, academic and labor sectors of the Oil & Gas Industry. In this context, all actors involved in the value chain are invited to jointly develop this cluster initiative. It is through mutual cooperation, training and know-how sharing that industry clusters are successful in creating competitive advantages for their members and the whole industry.

The Government of Neuquen Province -through its Ministry of Energy and Public Services- and Fundacion Alejandria, together with Compromiso Humano, invite you to participate and be a part of the 2nd Edition of CLUSTER SHALE NEUQUEN.


Cluster Shale Neuquen 2013 will feature a notable lineup of national and international speakers, with broad expertise in the field. As in the 1st Edition, the topics covered this year will include leading cases, successful clusters and presentations showing the advantages of cluster development. This 2nd Edition reinforces the concept of SHARE as the only viable way to develop unconventional resources in an efficient and sustainable manner.
