Qatar Petroleum signs Argentina deal with Exxon
Andrew Swiger, senior vice-president of Exxon, said the deal “underscores” his company’s commitment to develop Argentinian resources.
No value was given for the agreements.
Announcement of the deal comes on the eve of a one-year anniversary of a diplomatic crisis which has rocked the Gulf.
On June 5, 2017, a group of countries including Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and Egypt cut all ties with Qatar, accusing it of supporting extremism and being too close to regional rival Iran.
Qatar denies the allegations and says the dispute is an attack on its sovereignty.
