Energy Resources in Argentina:

Considerations Regarding Primary Distribution ( ...continuation )


The importance of the energy supply for economic development, and the role of hydrocarbon resources in current energy systems, encompasses all topics related to the hydrocarbon market. In this sense, the evolution and income collection on behalf of various agents of the chain, as well as the discussion of this topic, its distribution and use by the State is a crucial factor for country development.

If we accept Marx’s theory of rents, by which hydrocarbon income is a surplus of production whose appropriation corresponds to the owner of the resource, legislation that establishes the limits of industry exploitation is of vital importance. The importance of the oil and gas business currently constitutes one of the main factors that explain the dispute for resource ownership.
