A private firm has done something that hasn’t been done in close to eight decades now. It has placed a brand new offshore well in the waters that surround the North American nation of Mexico. This is part of Mexico’s attempt to give competitors from different countries the opportunity to access its energy world. Talos Energy, LLC. is located in Houston, Texas and collaborates with Premier Oil PLC in London, United Kingdom. Sierra Oil & Gas in Mexico works alongside Premier Oil PLC as well. Talos Energy and Sierra Oil & Gas started the well drilling project together in May of 2017. This has the distinction of being the only offshore exploration well that has been established by an entity that wasn’t Petroleos Mexicano since back in 1938. That year was when Mexico’s oil industry underwent nationalization. Petroleos Mexicanos is operated by the state.
Talos Energy describes an independent gas and oil firm that concentrates on both offshore production and exploration matters. The team members who work for Talos Energy have extensive experience that involves getting assets in locations that are within and close to the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Coast. Talos Energy’s employees know a lot about exploration and making the most out of all available assets. This company is at the helm of more than 33,000 square miles. This land offers 3D seismic data.
The leaders who work for Talos Energy are experts in many interesting topics. They have strong backgrounds in acquisition, commercial matters, operations and geology. They know the ins and out of the Gulf of Mexico. The management executives who work for Talos Energy know each other extremely well. The majority of these people have been collaborators since the beginning of the 2000s. Timothy S. Duncan serves as the Chief Executive Officer and President of Talos Energy. He works next to COO (Chief Operating Officer) and Executive Vice President Stephen E. Heitzman. Other leaders on the staff are Exploration Executive Vice President John A. Parker, Chief Financial Officer and Senior Vice President Michael L. Harding and General Counsel William S. Moss III.
For the first time in nearly eight decades, Talos Energy, a private drilling contractor has sunk a new offshore oil well in Mexico. That comes as the latest step in Mexico’s drive to encourage foreign investors to go back to its energy market. Drilling began on May 21 through a joint venture of Mexico’s Sierra Oil & Gas and Houston-based Talos Energy, and London’s Premier Oil. It’s Mexico’s first offshore exploration undertaken by anyone other than Petroleos Mexicanos, a state-run monopoly since nationalizing of its oil industry in 1938.
The Zama-1 well is located in the state of Tabasco along the Sureste Basin. According to Premier Oil, the well holds an approximately 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude. Experts expect to take up to 90 days to complete drilling at the cost of $16 million. The three companies won rights in the first round of bidding in 2015 after Mexico voted to privatize its ailing oil industry. It is Mexico’s first non-Pemex well to be drilled in Mexico as part of its energy reform process. According to Elaine Reynolds, a London-based analyst, this well will be keenly watched by the oil drilling industry. Its structure suggests that the project has high chances of success. Based on the impact of Zama-1 in the Mexican energy market, it’s one of the prestigious exploration wells ever drilled in the country. As the operator of the well, Talos Energy owns a 35% stake in the project.
