Mexico Loosense Eenrgy Monopoly, Talos Starts Drilling06.28.17

The Talos energy company announced that after the Mexican government announced that it would consider allowing private entities to invest in its energy resources, that it has secured first-drilling rights in their waters.

Since 1938 the Mexican government has had an enduring ban on private money venturing into its territories to drill for oil. For nearly 80 years private money, whether domestic or foreign, was prohibited from threatening the existing monopoly. Tat changed in 2015 when the Mexican government announced that, for the first time in nearly eight decades, it would consider allowing private investor to lobby for rights to drill. Talos, along with partners Premier Oil and Sierra Oil, lobbied the government back then and managed to secure the first-drilling rights.

Talos and partners started drilling in May of this year. The $16 million agreement allows them to continue their operations at the Zama-1 well, off the Sureste Basin near Tobasco, for 90 days. In that time Talos expects to extract somewhere between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil.

This first step for Talos and Mexico is being talked about as one of the biggest stories to come out of the energy industry in 2017, but it also points towards the future. Market speculators see this as an opportunity to bring in even more competition into Mexico’s resource market. This will prove beneficial for the Mexican economy and energy prices abroad, but it may increase global competition if other countries see the benefits that Mexico is receiving from this initiative and decide to do likewise.

Talos Energy, based out of Houston, Texas, is an American oil and gas company that manages shelf and deep-water assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Since 2012 Talos Energy has increased its development of offshore exploration, spearheading efforts to discover wells in challenging waters.

Orthopaedic Surgery is Greg Finch’s Passion06.25.17

Orthopaedic surgeons treat muscle and skeleton conditions. Other orthopaedic surgeons may also specialize in non surgical procedures that treat orthopaedic problems. Specialists like Greg Finch specialize in treating spinal conditions. Here are three orthopaedic procedures that are most common.

Herniated Discs Treatment

A normal spinal disc is made of a soft middle enclosed in a tough exterior which is located between vertebrae. A patient is diagnosed with a herniated disc if the soft center forces its way through the disc’s tough exterior. The condition, which is also known as a ruptured or slipped disc, irritates nerves and leads to pain and numbness in the limbs. Orthopedic surgeons are trained to treat such conditions. The main focus of the treatment is to relieve systems associated with herniated discs.

Spine surgery

Spine surgery treats a variety of problems. One of the main issues that the procedure seeks to address is debilitating back pain that impairs a patient’s daily life. After the surgery, they will experience less pain and be able to engage in more physical activity. Spinal Fusion is the most common type of spine surgery. During the procedure, the orthopedic surgeon fuses spinal bones resulting into restricted motion between spinal bones.

Joint replacements

Surgeons commonly perform joint surgery procedures such as hip and knee replacement. Knee replacement surgeries could be partial or full replacement. In a full replacement procedure, the doctor implants a complete prosthetic device or conducts a revision surgery of a device that was previously implanted. In the partial surgery, they only repair one side of the knee.
