Welcome to Americas Petrogas


Americas Petrogas Inc ("API" or TSXV "BOE") is a Canadian, Calgary oil and gas exploration and production company with Assets in Argentina and Peru. Our oil and gas exploration, production and development activities are in Argentina's most prolific hydrocarbon basin of Neuquen, where we are one of the largest land holders with over 2,000,000 acres spread over 16 large blocks, 15 of which we operate. In Peru, our subsidiary, GrowMax Agri Corp. ("GrowMax") is exploring and developing a potash fertilizer project and a phosphate project. (see:

Our 16 Neuquen blocks provide us a large variety of opportunities for conventional oil and gas, and, a large number of our blocks provide a combination of opportunities for unconventional shale oil, shale gas, tight oil, tight gas as well as conventional oil and gas. The blocks with shale potential are located in underexplored western part of the Neuquen Basin where the Vaca Muerta, Los Molles, and Agrio shales are exceptionally thick and in the Picun Leufu sub-basin where the shales are less thick, but are much shallower and offer the lowest cost to drill and exploit. Partners in our shale blocks include Apache Corporation on the Huacalera block, and Exxon Mobil Corporation on the four Los Toldos blocks which we operate.

The Neuquen basin offered us the business opportunity to assemble a large land position in a proven producing basin, access to significant infrastructure (pipelines, gas plants, oil refineries); and exceptional availability of oil and gas services, and experienced oilfield personnel. Our land portfolio is very well positioned to offer us significant opportunities in the fast evolving shale corridor for unconventional shale gas, shale oil, tight gas, tight oil as well as unconventional prospectivity. This is the same basin where Repsol-YPF has recently announced almost 1 billion recoverable barrels of oil equivalent (80% oil) and more recently announced resources of 23 billion barrels of oil equivalent as estimated by Ryder Scott, a well petroleum engineering company. Recent drilling and completions activity by various major and independant oil companies such as Apache, Exxon, YPF, EOG Resources, Total, Chevron and others are quickly proving the prospectivity of the Vaca Muerta Shale.
