Knight Piésold Argentina Opens New Office in Neuquén

January 29, 2018, Mendoza, Argentina – Knight Piésold Argentina opened a new office in the city of Neuquén, a capital of Neuquén province in west-central Argentina. The office became fully operational in October 2017 and focuses on serving the oil and gas industry from Neuquén province to the main hydrocarbon basin in the country. Knight Piésold Argentina has been supporting YPF S.A. (YPF), the largest company in Argentina and the third largest oil company in South America, for many years, and the Neuquén office is spearheading work for YPF moving forward as well as working to serve other operators in the industry.

The office currently serves as a base for the operational management of two large consulting assignments for YPF in the south of the country: (1) supervision of repositories and (2) quantitative risk analysis characterization and remediation plan for Neuquén and non-conventional regions.

The first assignment involves the control of material entry, exit, disposal, and processing in the repositories, in which Knight Piésold arranged the supply of a trailer and associated equipment to serve 11 repositories. This allows for the inspection of load and discharge and for monitoring of waste streams management of oil activity. Additionally, the second assignment comprises characterization studies in Phase I and II, quantitative risk analysis, and analysis of alternatives and remediation plans. Since this assignment started, Knight Piésold has carried out more than 50 environmental studies and has provided various specialized equipment and machinery for this service.

The Neuquén office, located very close to the city’s administrative center, is housed in a two-storey building that includes a warehouse for equipment and vehicles. This is the third office established in the country, having opened the San Juan office in 2005 and subsequently the Mendoza head office in 2007. Knight Piésold Argentina is excited to be a part of the Neuquén community and looks forward to continuing growth in and serving clients in the oil and gas industry.
