US Gulf of Mexico operators Kosmos Energy and Talos Energy are limbering up to drill significant exploration prospects that could, if successful, be tied into nearby offshore production facilities.
Houston-based Talos Energy is looking to increase its oil production and its position in the US Gulf of Mexico, chief executive Tim Duncan told the company's annual investors day on Tuesday. Pointing out the massive scale of the US Gulf and the size of its resource base, Duncan said ample opportunity remains offshore - even as production in the Gulf trails only the prolific onshore Permian basin of west Texas and south-east New Mexico in terms of US Production.
Talos Energy has struck a deal with BP and Exxon separately in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. The company has acquired the Hershey prospect from Exxon and will help BP drill and evaluate the Puma West prospect. "As these transactions prove, Talos is well-positioned to continue unlocking material resource opportunities in our basin through multiple creative business development avenues", said Talos CEO.
