HOUSTON-For Talos Energy CEO Tim Duncan, a response of OK is fantastic when someone asks "how is it going? in today's lower-for-longer commodity price environment.
Fresh off of news of a Pliocene oil discovery in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico (GoM) and eyes on further potential pay as an early entrant in Mexico's shallow water, the 4-year-old company is chasing opportunities armed with seismic technology and expertise with private equity capital.
"We've got a little bit of wind behind us and a little bit of good news at a time when it is hard to find good news by having a major discovery in the first quarter in the midst of this commodity crisis," Duncan told a crowd gathered this week for a luncheon hosted by the Independent Petroleum Association of America and the Texas Independent Producers & Royalty Owners.
Located in the Green Canyon area and drilled down dip, the Tornado discovery well hit 291 feet of high-quality oil pay. The Talos-operated well was then sidetracked to an up-dip take point, where it encountered 281 feet of oil pay, according to partner Deep Gulf Energy Cos. Plans are for the well to be tied back to the Helix Producer 1. Talos expects to flow oil for the development by year-end, Duncan told Hart Energy.
The strategy is working so far, according to Duncan, who was a founder and senior vice president of business development for Phoenix Exploration Co., which was sold to a group led by Apache Corp. (NYSE: APA). "What we're navigating is another commodity trough," he added. "We navigated the same thing at Phoenix and it worked out OK."
The latest find, at a water depth of 2,760 feet, is underneath an asset that had already produced between 60 million and 70 million barrels (bbl) for Chevron (NYSE: CVX) and BHP Billiton (NYSE: BHP), Duncan said. He noted Talos used some wide azimuth seismic data and reprocessing before testing the closure.
M&A and asset development are part of the Talos concept.
"We're going to do a lot of reinvestment with the drillbit and we're going to make sure we have enough seismic that that reinvestment opportunity delivers the best returns," Duncan said.
So far this year, production has averaged 26,000 bbl/d, and 70% of the company's production is hedged at $80, Duncan said.
"The seismic is there," Duncan said. "We're dealing with worst case late '90s 3-D, best case pre-stack time 2010 3-D processing. So it's ripe for reprocessing. It's ripe for AVO (amplitude versus offset) products. It's got everything that interests us."

"It wasn't developed on Pliocene, Miocene, salt traps, subsalt, salt domes, lows that come in at three-way closures," Duncan said. "That is still there."
According to Premier, there are numerous leads.
Duncan said the company is currently developing the first block. He anticipates drilling the first well around this time next year, targeting a more than 200 MMbbl prospect.
"It's got all the attributes I think you want to see," he said. "Do you get some of the robust rates of returns when you look at the economic infrastructure? Not as much as you get in the Gulf, let's be clear about that. What we get is an opportunity to underpin shorter life assets on the U.S. side with potentially longer life assets on the Mexico side."
When it's time to monetize the story, Talos believes the narrative might create some demand, "if we are lucky enough to be successful in Mexico," Duncan said.
"Never say never," Duncan told Hart.
