Viper’s Cassio Audi: A Quick Glance08.10.17

Up until 1989, the world of heavy-metal lovers got to know a rising star in the form of Cassio Audi and his band members in the Brazilian heavy metal band known as Viper. Cassio Audi was Viper’s first drummer who not only made a name in Brazil’s heavy metal music rock history, but also assisted in the spread of heavy metal through out Latin America in a time when rock music was a rare thing to hear for the young who were in want of it. After the international release of their first demo album The Killera Sword in 1985 the whole world got a taste of Cassio Audi’s flourishing talent on the drum sets. As one of the founding member of Viper he took his drumming very seriously becoming quite proficient in the instrument and a well respected member of Viper. Not only was he a drummer, but he helped composed music along with promoting the band earning them even more recognition and fame. For his diligence in all his endeavors with the band along with gaining inspiration from British heavy metal bands including the bands most influential source, Iron Maiden, came their 1987 debut album Soldiers of Sunrise which proved Cassio Audi’s mastery as well as sheer genius of the drum sets. Critics were quick to point out flaws in the bands abilities, but given their young age and the fact that English was their second language they were wholly recognized with the possibility that they would surely rise to the top in their musical careers. Viper would continue to release album after album with some help from Cassio Audi, but he felt like his time with the band was coming to an end and chose to pursue another interest which was as successful as his promising musical career in 1989.

Agora Financial: The Real Psychics of Economics07.30.17

There are basically two ways you can find out about the value of something. One is to sit in the office and use the internet or go to a library to do your research. The other is to actually go to where it is that you are doing research on. The second approach is not exactly a common method, especially among investors. They are more likely to do research on a commodity from the comfort of their office. The fact is, it is not possible to get a total picture on anything by going with this method. For those who are trying to find methods to make their retirement financially secure, it is important to go with someone who is serious about finding real value.
For example, take the case of gold. In the late 1990’s gold was selling for approximately $256 per ounce. By the mid-2000’s it reached nearly $1800 per ounce. For those people who predicted this rise, it was indeed a golden harvest. The good news is that all this and more is possible for any investor who uses the help of the right company, such as Agora Financial.

Talos Energy Successful in Historic Offshore Oil Discovery07.15.17

For the first time ever, a successful offshore well was drilled by Mexico’s private sector. Talos Energy LLC and its two partners Sierra ad Premier struck oil in an offshore well in late May of this year prompting praise from all in the oil and gas sector. Tim Duncan, the President and CEO of Talos Energy calls this feat both “historic” and “significant” and went on to praise the cooperation of both the United States and Mexico. Duncan also notes that projects like this are exactly the kind of results the industry was hoping to see come out of recent energy reforms inspiring the innovation necessary to make this landmark event possible. These energy reforms have sent optimism soaring in the oil and gas industries due to their incentive for the private sector to join both the exploration and acquisition markets in the US and Mexico. Going forward Talos and its partners will be drilling down over 14,000 feet in order to complete further testing on the surrounding offshore reservoirs. To ensure environmental safety, Talos has put a liner in place to protect both the discovered oil reservoirs and the surrounding aquatic life. Two contracts for production sharing have been carried out to partner with Mexico’s upstream oil and gas regulator, the National Hydrocarbon Commission. This discovery has reaffirmed the hypothesis that over 162,000 gross acres in this area off the coast of Mexico is rich with oil. It is thought that this is just a drop in the bucket for Talos Energy from the previously untapped area of oil recovery.

Talos Energy and the Zama-1 Oil Well Partnership.07.12.17

Talos Energy has been growing exponentially over the last few years. It even joined forces with a Mexican company and a European country to back in 2015 to bring a government run monopoly in Mexico after 80 years. If the company’s amazing track record, especially in how it treats its employees is anything to go by, then Talos Energy LLC is headed towards a very lucrative feature.
Talos Energy is a privately held company that has its head deep in the oil and gas industry. The company is actually just a profile company with the real players behind it being the Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO). Talos Energy, hence, is just an affiliate of the Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) and benefits from their mother company through funding and management. The company is based in Houston and has already drilled and produced over 16, 000 barrels of it. It also has a consolidated human resource over 120 employees, with the advantage of being able to seek support from more of the Apollo Global Management, LLC (NYSE: APO) human resource pool.
The Zama-1 Oil Well Partnership
Talos Energy LLC was shrewd enough to team up with Premier Oil Plc and Mexican Sierra Oil & Gas to convince the people of Mexico to allow privately held entities to mine oil and participate in their energy sector. They were awarded mining rights through voting, but the deal stipulated that the drilling of the new offshore oil well would be under the oversight of the Mexican. Previously, the government had been drilling oil within their territories as a monopoly. The trend had existed for over 8o years, and the private sector was not welcome to participate due to geological concerns since most of the drilling is done under the Mexican seas.
The drilling expedition of the Zama-1 oil is estimated to take the three companies about 90 days to complete. The new offshore oil well, which is estimated to hold about 300 to 500 million barrels of oil, will present Talos Energy LLC one of the most lucrative opportunities it has ever come across. Considering just how motivated and efficient Talos Energy LLC’s employees are, the drilling is expected to be a big success.
