The majority of its production and revenues, its ongoing drilling and workover activities, estimated proved reserves and assets are located in Argentina, including its currently producing Vaca Muerta wells.

In general, according to Vista Energy, the oil and gas industry is competitive, and the company may encounter strong competition from other independent operators and large oil companies in the acquisition and development of oil licenses or agreements.

In Argentina, Vista Energy competes for resources with state-owned YPF, as well as with private companies such as Pan American Energy, Pluspetrol, Tecpetrol, Chevron, Total, and CGC, among others.

In Mexico, the company competes for resources with Pemex, the state-owned company, and with local and international oil companies.

The company is also affected by competition for drilling rigs and the availability of other equipment, materials or technology.

Rising commodity prices often increase demand for drilling rigs, completion assemblies, supplies, services, equipment and crews, and may result in increases in the cost, or shortages, of services.

The economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, import restrictions imposed by the Central Bank of Argentina and increased oilfield activity have led to higher operating costs.

Globally, the largest energy companies include Saudi Arabian Oil, China Shenhua Energy, Reliance Industries, Fortum Oyj, Surgutneftegas Public JSC, Indian Oil Corp, Enterprise Products Partners, Iberdrola, CNOOC and China Petroleum & Chemical.
