Since current records began in May 2011, UK Export Finance (UKEF) has not provided support directly to any fracking projects in Argentina.

UKEF provided an export working capital guarantee of £375,000 to support a UK company to provide a drilling simulator and consultancy services in Argentina in March 2017.

In September 2017 UKEF provided an export working capital guarantee of £290,000 to the same exporter for provision of drilling consultancy services in Argentina.
