On Monday, 5th of May the post issue "Recovery Energy Sovereignty" was launched. The "leaf block" consists of a photographic collage that combines elements characteristic of the oil industry; the old logo of the company; and infographics with figures reflecting the outgoing data today. This stamp series was issued in honor of one of our iconic national companies.
On April 16, 2012 , President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner sent to Congress a bill proposing expropriate YPF shares and declare national public interest in achieving self-sufficiency in hydrocarbons, as well as exploitation, processing , transportation and marketing. The project was approved and promulgated by Law No. 26,741, on May 3, 2012.
Two years later, YPF operates as a joint venture, with a management model that aligns the interests of the company with the country, while all production rates increased.
The company is the largest producer of oil in Argentina and employs 45,000 people. It is also a leader in unconventional resources: Vaca Muerta , in Neuquen, is the third largest reserves in the world shale.
The issue is available in all philatelic offices in the country.
