  • October 2017. Professionals from Calfrac, ExxonMobil, Oilstone Energía, Pampa Energía, Petrolera El Trébol, Pluspetrol, Refinor, Shell, Tecpetrol, TGN, TGS, Total Austral and YPF participated in the first edition devoted to the Argentine context of the course "Indigenous Peoples and the Hydrocarbon Industry,” which was held in late October.

    The definition and the socio-demographic and cultural characterization of indigenous peoples in general and of Argentina, the international framework applicable and the administrative and legal framework of the country, the relations between the State, the hydrocarbon industry and indigenous peoples, and the management of relations with indigenous peoples, were some of the topics addressed during the training, which was held in the Argentine Oil and Gas Institute (IAPG).

    The objectives of the course were to guide and provide tools for the general knowledge about the issue of indigenous peoples in Argentina, and specifically, its relation with the hydrocarbon industry, as well as to foster debate and reflection on the relationship between the oil and gas sector and the indigenous peoples in Argentina.

    The training was delivered by Laura Diaz Galán, anthropologist graduated from the University of Buenos Aires and a specialist in qualitative methodologies and in ethnography applied to hydrocarbon and extractive projects, and by Mario Nanclares, sociologist with more than 15 years of professional experience in socio-environmental surveys and assessments, planning and implementation of programs of public consultation and communication, studies of social perception and location of works and industrial projects.

    In response to the needs of the sector and with the support of regional experts, ARPEL developed the "Manual on Relations with Indigenous Peoples," which can be found on the following link https://arpel.org/library/publication/155

    A new edition of the course “Indigenous Peoples and the Hydrocarbon Industry" with a focus on Argentina will be held December 4-5, 2017.
