Mexico has been very keen on attracting foreign investors to its underdeveloped drilling sector. Those efforts finally bore fruits. Bloomberg recently reported that the Mexican government had for the first time in well over 80 years, allowed a private company to drill offshore. The company was Talos Energy LLC.
Talos Energy hopes to partner up with Premier Oil Plc, an energy giant based in London, and the Mexican Sierra Oil and Gas Inc. The milestone achievement got mentioned in a press statement issued on the 21st of May 2017.
Petroleos Mexicanos Monopoly is Broken
Previously, the drilling rights were exclusively held by the state-run and owned oil and gas giant company, Petroleos Mexicanos. The latter had enjoyed a monopoly on the energy sector in the South American nation for the better part of the past century. The offshore well sunk by Talos Energy, the Zama-1 holds massive oil reserves. Best estimates state the Zama-1 has the capacity to produce up to 500 million barrels of crude oil.
Cost of Drilling
Drilling was expected to last for three months, according to the top officials of Premier Oil, Sierra Oil & Gas, and Talos Energy. The companies needed to cough up an estimated $16 million to extract the fossil energy and convert it into meaningful end-products.
Experts Weigh in
Elaine Reynolds is a vastly experienced energy industry expert working with the Edison Investment Research Consortium in London. Mr. Reynolds expressed his optimism about the future of the Mexican oil industry. The reforms taking place in the nation’s energy sector look very promising, moving forward.
Another industry expert, Charlie Sharp of the Canaccord Genuity Ltd., dubbed the Zama-1 drilling project as one of the biggest exploration news of the year. Talos Energy owns and controls 35% of the rights to the tender while Sierra Oil & Gas controls 40% and the remaining 25% is in the hands of Premier Oil Plc.
About Talos Energy

Following the Constitutional Energy Reforms in Mexico in 2013, foreign competitors are now allowed to drill in Mexican waters. The first project after this act was pushed forward is the Zama-1 exploration. It is a joint venture by three companies: Houston’s Talos Energy, London’s Premier Oil, and Mexico’s Sierra Oil and Gas Company. This is the first time in almost 80 years that a private company has been involved in the drilling of an offshoot well in Mexican waters. This is effort by Mexico to improve their failing oil industry. Ever since the country of Mexico nationalized its oil industry, all explorations in Mexico were controlled by the state run monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos.
The Zama-1 well is predicted to be a huge success due to this physical structure and geological location. It is expected to hold 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude oil and it will take about three months for the project to be completed. Premier Oil estimates the venture will cost them around $16 million to undergo. Since this is the first well to be drilled by private companies, it is going to be very interesting to see how it plays out. Many people believe the well will be huge success for everyone involved, and additionally be very beneficial to Mexico’s oil industry. Sierra Oil and Gas holds the largest stake at 40%, Premier has 25%, and Talos Energy has 35%. Talos Energy is also the operator of the well.
Talos Energy is private oil and gas company located in Houston. Their main focus is on the exploration of new territory and exploitation of oil and gas in the Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico. They are known to be one of the best places to work in the Houston area because every employee gets a piece of equity in the company.
They recently acquired Helix Energy Solutions Group which their CEO and president, Tim Duncan, believes will be hugely beneficial int heir progress toward creating a large Oil company on the Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico. Helix Energy Solutions Groups has been successful itself thanks to their recent Wang exploration, and now that it has been acquired by Talos Energy this company will see huge strides in their progress toward the future.
When it comes to successful cancer treatment, there are many factors at play. For one thing, people have to make sure that they catch the disease while it is still in its less advanced stages. As cancer advances, it becomes harder to treat. However, a lot of cancer can go undetected. Therefore, it is important to find a facility that has the right equipment for cancer detection. Fortunately, there is Cancer Treatment Centers of America. They make sure that they have all of the equipment necessary so that they can catch any form of cancer at its earliest stages. This makes it easier to bring the patient effective treatment.
There are other factors to successful cancer treatment. One of these factors led to the creation of the facility. This factor is the passion and the dedication the experts have at finding better treatments. One thing that the experts have realized is that they are not going to be able to find the best possible treatment with general hospitals and general treatment facilities. They need specialized treatment facilities so that they can come with plans that are going to help with the recovery from cancer treatment. This is one advantage that patients have when they go to Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
Another very important factor to successful cancer treatment is partnerships and collaborations. Cancer Treatment Centers of America has taken their time to find other facilities to partner with in order to increase their effectiveness in finding treatment for cancer. They have partnered with NantHealth and AllScripts. This has resulted in the launch of Clinical Pathways. This is a huge step forward for cancer professionals in that it helps people find all of the possible treatment plans. This also takes away a lot of guessing on the part of clinicians when it comes to cancer treatment.
