Company profile

We invest in energy, to create
more energy

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, transmission and distribution. Pampa generates electricity from 4,944 MW, 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 85% of the high voltage transmission lines of the country. We operate in the distribution segment through Edenor, the country’s largest electricity utility, serving 3 million customers with a concession covering the north of the City of Buenos Aires and Greater Buenos Aires.

We have developed intense activity at exploration and production of oil and gas, with presence in 12 production blocks and 6 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. Through our stake in Refinor, we refine and commercialize fuels up north of the country.

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”.

Vision

To be a leading company in the Argentine energy sector distinguished by its operational excellence, continuous growth and commitment with the country.

Mission

Continuous development of the human capital, productive investments in the country and optimal service standards with the highest ethical values integrating and attaining sustainable performance.

Our History

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:
