Vaca Muerta is not competitive with current prices

The Vaca Muerta project has shown that it can work, at least partially, with international oil prices on the order of $60 a barrel (yesterday, the Brent closed at $42.72). Now that it has fallen from that value, most of the wells have been closed. The same happens in the case of gas which, with current international values, does not work, is not competitive. The refineries should temporarily fix their refining margins according to similar values in force in the world, and the oil provinces should channel their budget balance requirements through the National Budget and not through the mechanism of the Creole barrel.
