Results from the latest appraisal well in the Zama Field offshore Mexico have given Talos Energy and partners confidence that estimated resources will land on the high side of guidance.

The Houston-based company said the Zama-3 appraisal well logged 228 m (748 ft) of pay, proving the reservoir’s extension to the south. The well, drilled downdip from the Zama-1 well in the Sureste Basin, is the last of the Zama appraisal wells drilled by the consortium of Talos, Premier Oil and Sierra Oil & Gas, a Wintershall DEA company.
