So far, Talos Energy has gained recognition from WorkplaceDynamics for being the only business of its kind that offers hospitable working conditions for its workers.

 

In the recent past, Talos Energy has made efforts to expand its activities. For instance, the corporation recently acquired Energy Resource Technology GOM Inc. at a staggering cost of $620 million, a testament that the company is making substantial amounts of profits by all means. To date, Talos Energy is renowned for being the only privately owned company to operate in the Gulf of Mexico in over eighty years. By partnering with other organizations like Premier Oil PLC and Sierra Oil & Gas, Talos Energy has given the state owned Petroleos Mexicanos a run for its money. So far, the Zama-1 well dug by the company has been a blessing in disguise for Talos Energy and partners and currently holds close to 500 million barrels of crude oil.
