Talos Energy Ventures into the Oil Industry in Gulf Mexico and Gulf Coast

It is the first time that a private company has sunk new offshore oil well in close to eighty years. A joint venture of Sierra oil and gas and talos energy began drilling the well on 21st May. The Zama 1 well that is located at the state of Tabasco has estimated 100 to 500 million barrels of crude oil from the well. The drilling process is expected to last ninety days at a cost of $16. The three companies won the right to drilling in 2015 on the first round of bidding when Mexico voted to open its oil industry to the private investments in the country following the poor performance registered in the oil industry. A London based analyst Elaine Reynolds of Edison Investment says that the well will be keenly watched and that from the structure of the basin, the project has a high geological chance of success.

According to Charlie Sharp of Canaccord Genuity Ltd, Zama is one of the most interesting exploration wells that have been drilled in the sector. Talos is the operator of the well and has 35% value of investment in the project. According to the premier’s statement, Sierra holds 40% and premier 25%.

Talos Energy is a private upstream gas and oil company that focuses on the acquisition and exploration of oil and gas properties within the Gulf Coast and the Gulf of Mexico. It is a portfolio company of funds that are affiliated with Riverstone Holdings and Apollo Global Management. The Company has its headquarters in Houston.

Talos announced its wholly owned subsidiary meaning that Talos production has completed its acquisition of Energy Resource Technology that is an oil and gas subsidiary of Helix Energy solutions. Helix will retain an overriding royalty interest in some exploration aspects and in the Wang discovery.

The president and chief executive officer of Talos Energy, Tim Duncan says that they are motivated by the outcomes of the Wang discovery. The company believes that combining the oil weighted and cash flowing assets with its 24000 square miles of seismic data accompanied with its team of professionals will allow it to transform into a significant E & P company in the lower Gulf coast and Gulf Mexico.

Bruce Bent II Says Money Market Funds Safe Harbor For Your Cash

Bruce Bent II is an innovative entrepreneur who graduated from Northeastern. His father was accredited as the inventor of money market fund. Bruce R. Bent II learned a lot while growing up in the financial industry.

Money market funds continue to be a smart repository for cash. But why should you care about these funds? The yield and the safety of MMFs makes them appealing. First, money market funds almost always offer a higher return than savings accounts, and they produce a greater yield than bank CD’s. They also routinely beat out the yields of even the best bank money market accounts.

As short-term rates rise, investors with money market funds can benefit because the fund managers are continually adding new debt to their portfolios, which in turn carry higher yields. And then there’s the liquidity. Yep, you can dispose of the funds quickly, making it an ideal place to store cash.

Now take a look at the risk. Due to the short term investment, it significantly reduces the interest rate risk and the risk of default. This has been a sound solution for the wealthy looking to invest in a large number of short-term investments and distribute the borrower’s risk very widely. According to Bruce Bent II, more individuals need to take advantage of money market funds.

Investors can write checks off their money market accounts and you can get the highest yield by seeking out those funds with the lowest expenses. Bruce Bent II suggests looking at the different types of funds, like taxable money markets, which provide very high yields and tax-free funds, which help you skip the federal taxes. There are also specific funds for states which help investors bypass state taxes.

Currently, Bruce Bent II is the Vice Chairman and President at Double Rock Corporation. He is an experienced executive providing professional guidance in financial management and needs assessments, as well as process improvement and operational streamlining.

Chris Burch On The Fusion of Tech and Fashion

The September 22nd, 2016 edition of Engadget features a article by Christopher Burch, founder and CEO of Burch Creative Capital. The article discusses how technology and fashion grow together in tandem. Burch states that ” technology grows with the popularity of what one considers fashionable”. He reinforces his argument by giving specific examples of the relationship.

Christopher Burch goes back to the 1970s in his first example. He points to the appearance of the “boom box” and how that technology became a symbol for self identity. He goes further in showing how the boom box became interwoven into culture by its appearance in movie story lines. As the “boom box” evolves into the “walkman” and finally the “iPod”, Burch states, ” technology grows with popularity of what one considers fashionable.”

In the present day, Burch exposes how fashion can be interwoven with technology to make a product more appealing. For example, he states that it is not fashionable to wear bike protection. He points to two inventors who created a system that an individual can wear around their neck which would inflate in an accident ,thereby protecting the head. In this case technology has been modified to preserve fashion sensibilities. Burch also discusses how designers are using recycling technology to create fashion. He cites how one designer recycles inner tubes of bicycles to create jackets and t-shirts.

Christopher Burch believes the fusion of fashion and technology is just beginning. He describes how sports apparel is being designed to capture Kinetic energy to power an individuals mp3 player. Burch elaborates further showing how technology may need assistance from the fashion world to market a product. Google was concerned about the stigma of wearing glasses when they came out with Google Glass. This concern was laid to rest when a top fashion designer had her models wear Google Glasses on the catwalk. Instantly, Google Glass was fashionable.

Christopher Burch is no stranger to fashion or technology. Burch began his career in 1976 by designing “preppy sweaters” and selling them door to door to college girls. Eventually this enterprise would spread to retail stores and his company would exceed $140 million in sales. Burch would officially become a billionaire in 2013 when he sold his 28.3% stake in his ex-wife’s fashion brand for $650 million. As a venture capitalist, Burch has made large investments in technology. He has invested in Internet Captital Group, Aliph and Powermat. Chris Burch is a master at marketing himself as a brand, using speaking engagements, book deals and social media.
