YPF, acronym for Yacimientos Petrolíferos Fiscales ; English: “Treasury Petroleum Fields”, is a vertically integrated Argentine energy company, engaged in the exploration and production of oil and gas, and the transportation, refining, and marketing of gas and petroleum products.
Founded in 1922 under Argentinian President Hipólito Yrigoyen’s administration, YPF was the first oil company in the world established as a state enterprise and the first to become vertically integrated. Its founder and first director was Enrique Mosconi, who advocated economic independence and starting in 1928, nationalization of oil supplies; the latter, however, was never achieved due to a 1930 military coup backed by foreign oil trusts against Yrigoyen. YPF was privatized in 1993 and bought by the Spanish firm Repsol S.A. in 1999; the resulting merger produced ‘Repsol YPF’. The renationalization of 51% of the firm was initiated in 2012 by President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner.
