Thank you Gustavo.

comes HSBC. question from Liliana from Young next Our

one was hydrocarbon answered. about The was law first which

The gas? about when you fostering kinds gas that or to export even allowed can what the enough or are making to it's not to prices? Are second domestic related more is see you're consumer increasing so if investments about domestic has incentives infrastructure would one they of more gas export gas sure you like

Gustavo Mariani

Chile, not not so think our sentence, a a Brazil, is on It's past in those contracts think for of those and of what that export answer we a but gain matter that perform bit do only and was markets more be we that costly that question it's the in In It's will I should easy there. painful we little important to Argentina or was contracts. we situation a and I regain order meaning the able that able is gas confidence to to to conditions to to be neighbors. are the signing

the that this of able gas Argentina to process to in which they most the be this important that LNG confidence from is impact that with be market supply something include Chile the planning Argentine the reduce moment. with or at eliminate are not so is of of replace as and is of to foreseen they that will decarbonization and solution time part So regain the thing

financing cost I short gas So significantly these I Basin is facility LNG. to our [Indiscernible] is from that We the which to they to Argentina, than before, an also being from that export order infrastructure to important investments is to term able new seeing and export as LNG be will the Neuquen most pipe able market. huge and to need a lower project require long Argentina think of Basin Neuquen what days. said term in from in be are there it more to the north huge transport the credibility export thing In potential

So is time the in future. that spend we more a can question answering that

Margarita Chun

Morgan Thank one Montanari you question. from Gustavo. He question Stanley. The added more Bruno next from comes

as M&A M&A Which use company does of cash. Argentina? the see a opportunities mentioned in You potential

Gustavo Mariani

Again petrochemical there's to the but obviously on nothing concrete nothing potential But that, generation far. we are or, and sector starting M&A concrete there's the related energy investment. power nothing stages. so very mostly a related early few All at

front. to tell much that on So you that

Margarita Chun

are questions We are hour. repeated. all following The close to one

watch to that we try No? everybody. again you out some think can you tell like should video will remarks today conference we know, to didn't I see, you answer that the address you give to So can don't we would or reach again. you

Gustavo Mariani

about Pampa question expecting good was segment that the I No. No. of petrochemical this quarter. is so

very So we are happy that. of

with continue the will We able be that expect far. whether this strong we second Obviously, we are the to one. as very half But segment the first don't in happy of second so be what will whether to happening performance the year. as quarter is know that excellent be, to

locally. coming [Indiscernible] important that Vaca to change able and you but development of a refineries, as is oil we give in the to the more coming to the and to input in that are in happening used to segment development import Vaca it results quite of continues related now out Muerta, that to Vaca that is Muerta segment the of is light some share Muerta way structural our we the to of light from source an and Just is -- grow

So that business. the margins of has this helped

in a international products import change is price according there parity. to the high structural to according price So our by our, we held prices segment and positive

past. segment slightly that think very the other half. second of been in that doing comments? we In in has well this the it's So a hope any to decline first And expect covers. this we I half year the

Lida Wang


hour, the So we are one top we of hour. are
