Mexico nationalized its oil industry in 1938. The nationalization of the oil industry meant that the Mexican federal government would own all the petroleum reserves, facilities, and foreign companies operating in the oil industry. Subsequently, the Mexican oil industry has been underperforming, and 80 years later, the government has decided to open the industry to private investors.

Mexico decided in 2015 to accept private investors in its oil industry. Three companies placed their bid and won rights to explore oil in in the Sureste Basin off the state of Tabasco. The three companies, Premier Oil, Talos Energy LLC, and Sierra Oil & Gas, joined hands to drill their first oil well, the Zama-1. It is the first non-Petroleos Mexicanos well since 1938. Experts approximate the volume of oil present in the well to be between 100-500 million barrels.

Some analysts have welcomed the move and termed it progressive. Elaine Reynolds, an analyst at London-based Edison Investment Research Ltd, lauded the move by the Mexican government to invite other players to its oil industry. He further added that Zama-1 well being the first non-Pemex well, would be under a keen scrutiny from all players in the oil industry. Charlie Sharp, an analyst at Canaccord Genuity Ltd., echoed Reynold’s sentiments. Sharp referred to Zama well as “one of the most interesting exploration wells to be drilled in the sector this year,’’ perhaps based on the implications the well would have on the Mexican oil market.

The decision to allow Talos manage the operations of the Zama well could have been informed by the entrepreneurial nature of Talos’ employees. For instance, Ash Shepherd the commercial manager at Talos Energy Mexico was recently the Thirty Under 40 honoree for his efforts of enabling Talos to operate in Mexico. All Talos employees have reported being satisfied with their work environment which has been made possible by the chief executive of Talos, Tim Duncan. WorkplaceDynamics this year named Talos the best workplace among local small businesses.

Talos Energy is headquartered in Houston; the company has witnessed an exponential growth over the last few years. The company recently acquired an oil and gas producing subsidiary of Helix Energy Solutions. It plans on acquiring another company with a budget of over $500 million. In the coming years, Talos is expected to increase the number of its employees immensely.

Kate Hudson Increases Her Fame and Tries New Ventures with Fabletics

When people think about Fabletics, they also think about Kate Hudson. After all, she is the one person who has contributed a lot to the creation of the brand. Therefore, she is the one who is going to be involved with a lot of the marketing. This is good for Fabletics because she is one of the more admired people when it comes to style. Therefore, when she markets Fabletics, it only works in the favor of the brand. For one thing, she is already a famous celebrity. When a company starts up and gets the backing of a celebrity, then it is going to have a much better chance of taking off than without a celebrity.


One thing that makes Kate Hudson so famous is that she is an actress. She has appeared in films like Almost Famous. Seeing that she is now one of the owners of the Fabletics brand, one can say that she has come a long way. Given that she is so passionate about fashion and making sure that she is dressed in an elegant way, it is fitting that she would get involved with a company that sells high fashion for customers. However, she is also passionate about inspiring people.


One of the most frustrating things about high fashion stores is that all of their clothes tend to be priced out of the reach of the average customer. Therefore, they often walk into the store only to walk back out never to return. With Fabletics, they want to make sure that the customer is able to save money. Therefore, the company has them sign up for a paid membership which includes a free outfit to go along with the outfits they choose. The best thing about it is that they are given a free outfit according to the data they give the company.


One thing Kate Hudson has done is help differentiate Fabletics from all of the other fashion retailers. People are slowly catching on to the advantage that Fabletics gives them. Fabletics also keeps in touch with its customers and informs them of new promotions.
