In only 6 years of existence, Houston-based Talos Energy has already managed to rack up several awards. The company, formed in 2012, has been named to the Houston Chronicle’s Top Workplaces list from 2017 through 2017. The annual award is based on input from employees, which makes the award even more special, as it demonstrates the company’s commitment to its employees. Considering that Talos Energy is based squarely in the midst of innumerable other oil and gas exploration companies in the Houston area, this is no small accomplishment.

Although a young company in a field often dominated by traditional oil and gas exploration giants, Talos Energy has grown from other companies. The company’s management staff brings decades of previous industry experience to the table. Founding partners John L. Harrison, John A. Parker, Timothy S. Duncan, and Stephen E. Heitzman first began by starting two other exploration companies, Gryphon Exploration, and Phoenix Exploration. After selling both companies, the group used the earnings to start up Talos Energy. Since then, the company has continued to increase its presence in the risky waters of the Gulf of Mexico drilling in both shallow and deep waters offshore as the Gulf’s newest wildcatter.
Not content to bask in their successes, Talos Energy acquired Whistler Energy II in a $52 million purchase on August 31, 2018. The purchase gives Talos an increased presence in the Gulf, as it takes over three blocks in the Central Gulf, as well as a drilling platform in shallower Gulf waters. This comes on the heels of Talos’ strategic combination (merger) of Stone Energy Corporation. This resulted in increased assets and a greater scale of production properties for the company. The Pompano platform, acquired in the deal, adds existing drilling infrastructure to Talos’ portfolio while allowing the company the chance to continue with new exploration.
With a scant 6 years in business, Talos Energy has shown no inclination to slow their growth. The Gulf of Mexico is no place to show hesitation in oil and gas exploration, and Talos continues to demonstrate a willingness to move forward.
