However, the recent reversal of this policy by the government has opened up the Mexican oil industry to foreign based and privately owned companies with huge potential of revolutionizing the industry. One such company is Talos Energy, which is in line to benefit from the cessation of Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) monopoly in the industry. After successfully submitting a bid jointly with Premier Oil Plc and Sierra Oil & Gas in 2015, Talos Energy was given the go ahead to prospect and drill oil rigs in Sureste Basin, Tabasco.

Talos Energy Consortium Makes History With Endeavor off Mexico’s Coast

A historic venture between Talos Energy, Premier Oil, and Sierra Oil and Gas has sunk a successful offshore exploration oil well in Mexican waters, the first by foreign companies in almost 80 years.

Houston-based well operator, Talos Energy LLC holds a 35% stake in the project while London-based Premier Oil’s and Mexico’s Sierra Oil and Gas’s interest is 25% and 40%, respectively.

The Zama-1 well, located 37 miles from the port of Dos Bocas in the Gulf of Mexico, completed drilling operations ahead of schedule and under budget in July. Current yield estimates are at 1.4 to 2.0 billion barrels, well above pre-drill expectations.

This being the first time since 1938 that an offshore exploration well has been launched by anyone other than state-run Pemex, the results of the Zama-1 drilling were highly anticipated by the industry. The project is a culmination of a process that began in 2015 when the joint venture won rights to the prospect in the first round of bidding, following the Mexican Congress’s vote to open up its oil industry to private investment.

According to Talos President and Chief Executive Officer, Tim Duncan, “We believe this discovery represents exactly what the energy reforms intended to deliver: new capital, new participants and a spirit of ingenuity that leads to local jobs and government revenues for Mexico.”

He also states the project’s success shows that smaller operators can “match the operational sophistication of our larger peers, but with a heightened sense of urgency.”

Talos Energy is an independent oil and gas company founded in 2012 by a management team with expertise in deep-water asset acquisition, offshore exploration, and production in and around the Gulf Coast and the Gulf of Mexico.

Talos also emphasizes safety, focusing on the protection of the public and environment. Noted for its collaborative, entrepreneurial culture and community involvement, Talos is consistently recognized as one of the top workplaces in Houston by the Houston Chronicle.
