Talos Energy Expands Use of ISN to Mexico
ISN is pleased to announce that Talos Energy, LLC (Talos) has expanded its use of ISNetworld to its offshore operations in Mexico. Talos subscribed to ISNetworld in 2014 to manage its contractors’ health, safety, procurement and training information for its operations in the United States.
In July 2015, Mexico conducted its first round of bids after the country opened up its energy sector to foreign oil and gas investors. As a result, Talos, along with partners Premier Oil and Sierra Oil & Gas, were awarded two shallow water blocks combining for over 160,000 acres. The blocks are located in the Sureste Basin, in the south western point of the Gulf of Mexico, just off of the coast of Villahermosa, Mexico.
“Contractor safety management is a core component of our risk management plan required by the Agencia de Seguridad, Energía Y Ambiente (ASEA) for exploration activities in Mexico,” said Robert Sheninger, VP, HSE and Regulatory Compliance at Talos. “Talos Energy has experienced firsthand how effective use of ISN tools can positively influence contractor performance and are excited to apply the same processes in Mexico.”
With the recent Mexico Energy Reform allowing foreign oil & gas investors to bid on Mexican energy assets, new regulations and protocols have been developed to ensure safe practices by the ASEA. Talos’ expansion of ISNetworld into Mexico demonstrates their commitment to ensuring the safety of their employees and contractors and complying with the ASEA regulations.
“We are pleased to expand our existing partnership with Talos Energy into Mexico,” said Adam Logan, Energy Director, ISN. “We’ve seen how this region is poised for growth and look forward to helping Talos contribute to a safer workplace and meet the standards set forth by the ASEA.”
