Talos Energy Joins Forces To Explore Zama-1

For the first time in nearly 80 years, Mexico is allowing foreign competitors access to the oil located in their waters. This was voted in favor of in response to Mexico’s ailing oil market and with the hope that bringing outsiders in will benefit everyone. The first bid was opened and won by Houston’s Talos Energy, London’s Premier Oil, and Mexico’s Sierra Gas and Oil. Sierra Gas and Oil holds the largest portion of the venture at 40% and Premier has a 25% stake. Talos Energy has a 35% stake in addition to also being the operator of the well.

Ever since Mexico declared nationality for their oil industry, the Petroleos Mexicanos have dominated the oil industry. This is the first time a privately owned company has taken their place and been allowed to conduct the exploration. The venture is going to be called the Zama-1 well and already it is expected to be a huge success. It will take about 90 days for the entire project to be completed and it will cost Premier Oil $16 million in total. Due to the location and structure of the Zama-1 well, this exploration is considered to have a high geological chance of success. They estimate there to be anywhere from 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude oil just waiting to be discovered in the Zama-1 well.

In 2013, Talos Energy acquired the subsidiary of Helix Energy Solutions, Energy Resource Technology GOM. They obtained this company for $620 million. Energy Resource Technology GOM recently has huge success in its Wang discovery when it found over 100 feet of high quality net oil. This was discovered in the Green Canyon Block of the Phoenix Field.

The CEO and President of Talos Energy, Time Duncan, is very excited about this new portion of the company and believes it will propel Talos even further in the oil industry. The combination of Energy Resource Technology GOM’s oil assets and high cash flow will connect perfectly with the company’s large about of seismic data and experienced employees. Talos is expected to make even more advances in the near future.
