The oil well was a collaboration between Houston based Talos Energy LLC, British based Premier Oil Plc, and Mexico’s own Sierra Oil and Gas. The companies began drilling the oil well in May. Before this, all other explorations were run by Petroleos Mexicanos, a state-owned monopoly that was founded in 1938.

The oil well was named Zama-1. It is located off Tabasco state in the Sureste Basin. Experts state that it holds about 100 to 500 million barrels of oil.

Premier Oil has a 25 percent stake in the well, Talos Energy owns 35 percent and Sierra Oil and Gas command the lion’s share of 40%.

Tim Duncan started Talos Energy with an equity of $600 million from previous assets. The current commodity prices experienced in the country pushed Tim and his partners to start the company.
