Talos Energy is setting the Standard in Culture and Innovation

Talos Energy has been shaking things up in the Oil and Gas Industry, being awarded the coveted Discovery award along with the being named the best place to work by Workplace Dynamics. Although Talo’s doesn’t offer the most lucrative compensation packages to its employees, they put a piece of the company’s equity in the hands of their Geoscientists, Receptionists and other employees. The risks are burdened by management while the profits are shared with the talent that makes what the company does possible. The Discovery Award is only given to those companies who make monumental discoveries in new and potentially lucrative technologies related to Natural Energy.

The Discovery award was issued earlier this year by the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators during the 2018 International Petroleum Summit in London. The Zama-1 discovery well was the driving force behind the award. Boasting the fact that it is the first offshore exploration well drilled by the private sector in Mexico’s history, it is expected to provide between 1.4 and 2.0 billion barrels of oil. The water depth at the drill site was approximately 165 meters; the Zama-1 discovery well represents a unique combination of outstanding reserves for a relatively low capital investment. This award was given to Talos Energy after careful consideration by the Association of International Petroleum Negotiators.

Offering a piece of the equity pie to employees is another way Talos Energy is setting themselves apart from their competition. Many of Talos Energy’s retired employees are being lured back to drill one more well by promises of a stake in the company’s equity and the work environment Talos Energy provides to its employees. As Michael Hardning, the Chief Accounting Officer and Controller at Talos Energy claimed, “A smaller company offers a bigger job and also provides Chief Executives with the capability of knowing all of the engineers and geologist at the company realizing how much of an impact everyone has on the overall success of the company.

Winning the Discovery award and being nationally recognized by Workplace Dynamics as the best places to work amongst local small businesses are both sure signs of Talos Energy future success within the oil and gas industry.

What Matt Badiali Recommends Next

Matt Badiali was teaching geology at the University of North Carolina when he got a call to be the geology expert for a financial genius’s investment team. He agreed to the job and has since traveled to Singapore, Mexico, and Iraq, to name a few of the places he has been, examining mines, fields, and oil rigs to confirm investment information in person. Over a dozen years of experience make him an expert at understanding the supply and demand cycle of metals, oil, natural gas, and other resources. In 2017, he started working at Banyan Hill Publishing as their natural resources expert. Read more at PRNewswire about Matt Badiali. There he recommends companies that he predicts will benefit from a coming supply shortage of a mineral and recommends when to sell companies he projects are about to lose stock value when supply reaches and exceeds demand. Since no one can predict the future, Matt Badiali has lost investors their money occasionally, but the dollars his advice has made his followers is impressive enough to keep him as a leader in natural resource investing.

What Are His Recommendations?

Matt Badiali is causing a stir recently over what he calls Freedom Checks. His sales page lists people who get paid thousands of dollars every quarter or every month. That page talks about a program started around 50 years ago called Satute 26-F. That program states that a company dealing with natural resources in the United States can operate tax free if it puts a lot of its profits into its shareholder’s pockets. These companies are called Master Limited Partnerships(MLP) and are not technically stocks. They are traded through the stock market and can be bought or sold like stocks though. The dollars Matt Badiali uses in his examples are impressive, but they are only possible if the shareholders have millions of dollars invested in the companies. Each share is only worth a few cents in dividend payouts. As an example, to get $100 in a check from a company he names, a person would have nearly $6000 already invested. Although possible for most people to invest a few thousand dollars, the examples he gives are of people with millions invested, or who bought their shares years ago for pennies. Matt Badiali does state that his recommendations are highly speculative and risky, but his history minimizes a lot of the risks.
