1 Translation of letter to the Buenos Aires Stock Exchange dated December 4, 2018.





Buenos Aires, December 4, 2018

To the

Bolsa de Comercio de Buenos Aires

(Buenos Aires Stock Exchange)

Re: YPF S.A. and Petronas E&P

Argentina S.A. advance to full development in La Amarga Chica block.

Dear Sirs:

The purpose of this letter is to comply with the requirements of Article 23 of Chapter VI of the ByMA Listing Regulations.

In that connection, and following the information provided to the market in our previous relevant notices1, we inform you that YPF S.A. (“YPF”) and PETRONAS E&P ARGENTINA S.A. (“PEPASA”) have agreed to start with the development phase of the La Amarga Chica block located in the Province of Neuquén.

In that sense, both companies are planning to invest more than 2.3 billion dollars for the next 4 years, which is the second largest direct YPF’s investment for the development of unconventional crude oil in Argentina. The goal is to reach a production of 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day by 2022. The project foresees a development with an estimated investment of 7 billion dollars through the life of the project, and a production level of approximately 75,000 barrels of oil equivalent.

La Amarga Chica becomes the third project that YPF and its partners carry out successfully to the stage of massive development, after Loma Campana and El Orejano.

Yours faithfully,

Diego Celaá

Market Relations Officer
