We invest in energy, to create
The professionalism and passion at Pampa Energía have enabled us to become one of the most important energy companies in the country.
We participate in power generation and transmission. Pampa generates 14% of the country’s electricity, combining thermal and hydroelectric power plants, as well as wind farms. The Company is engaged in the power transmission through the co-control of Transener, that operates 86% of the high voltage transmission lines of the country.
We have developed intense activity at exploration and production of oil and gas, with presence in 11 production blocks and 4 exploration blocks, located in the country’s most relevant basins. As co-controllers of Transportadora del Gas del Sur (TGS), we transport 60% of the gas consumed in Argentina.
In Pampa we elaborate a wide range of petrochemical products, and we are the main producers of polystyrene, styrene and rubber in Argentina.
We are listed in the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (BASE) represented by the ticker “PAMP” and listed in the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) since October 9, 2009, represented by the ticker “PAM”.
To be an emblematic company in the Argentine energy sector, distinguished by its commitment, operational excellence and continuous growth.
To develop people and foster productive investment in the country and highest standards upon ethical values, integrating and attaining sustainable performance.
In the year 2005, Grupo Emes (previously known as Grupo Dolphin), that had already incorporated important energy related assets, acquired Frigorífico Pampa S.A., a company listed in the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange (BASE) since the 1940s, but had not had any commercial activity for some time.
This company became the main vehicle in which the founders consolidated all of its investments in the country’s energy industry. First it was renamed to Pampa Holding S.A. and later, given our activity in the energy sector, changed to Pampa Energía S.A.
From that moment forward, a new journey started with a particular aspiration: to become the most important integrated energy company in Argentina. Below are a few milestones along the way:
