The country decided to open up its troubled oil industry by allowing private investment in the sector. Bidding was done in 2015, and three companies won the rights. The drilling of the well started on May 21, 2017, by Talos Energy LLC in partnership with a London based Premier Oil Plc and Mexico’s Sierra Oil Gas. According to Premier, Talos energy owned 35% of the venture and was the one to operate the well; Sierra owns 40% and Premier 25%.
The well, Zama-1 is located in the Sureste Basin off Tabasco State. The drilling process was expected to take 90 days at an estimated cost of $16 million. A London based analyst, Elaine Reynolds said that the project would be much in focus being the first well not operated by the government for almost 80 years. Geologically the project has a high chance of success due to the structure of the basin. Another analyst, Charlie Sharp noted that Zama was an exciting project for the energy sector this year and learn more about Talos Energy.
