The unit was established in 1993, and in 2001, expanded into 700 service stations with the purchase of Eg3 from the struggling Sociedad Comercial del Plata. Its purchase in 2003 of Petrolera Santa Fe/Pecom Energía from local industrialist Gregorio Pérez Companc allowed it to significantly expand into the local fossil fuel sector.
It expanded into electric grid operations with the purchase of a majority stake in Transener from PESA, though the group sold Transener to local entrepreneur Marcelo Mindlin in 2004. The company since operates in the energy area, focusing its business in the exploration and production of oil and gas, as well as the petrochemical and electricity production.
