In this week's Buenos Aires Times, Nicolás Gandini looks at the biggest deal of the week. Just over a year since the death of Carlos Bulgheroni, the Bridas Corporation has announced it's joining forces with BP to create the Pan American Energy Group, a venture that brings together PAE and Axion Energy, two of the largest players in the local oil and gas market. Using his in-depth knowledge to explore the mega-merger, Gandini looks at the story of the deal, which will create Argentina's largest private company, reshaping the local energy market.

Elsewhere, we take an in-depth look at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's visit to Buenos Aires this week, go through the biggest stories of the week - from human rights sentencings to Cristina Fernández de Kirchner's surprise TV interview - and cover the biggest stories in Latin America, including the resignation of Vice-President Raúl Sendic.

As well as bringing you the best in analysis in opinion – including exclusive columns from James Neilson, Agustino Fontevecchia and Carolina Barros - the Times also takes a look back at 141 years of history as we celebrate what would've been the Buenos Aires Herald's anniversary. Former Herald staffers Robert Cox, Andrew Graham-Yooll, Michael Soltys and Marcelo García assess the newspaper's legacy and share a few of the lesser-known stories of Argentina's legenday English-language newspaper.
