Mexico Announces First Oil Well In Decades

For the first time in nearly eight decades, a private company has established a new oil well offshore in Mexico. This is the latest step in Mexico’s decision to permit foreign competitors to enter its energy market again.

The oil well is the joint effort of Premier Oil Pic, which is based in London, Talos Energy LLC from Houston and Mexico’s Sierra Oil and Gas. Drilling for the well started on May 21, as confirmed by a recent statement from Premier. The well is the first off-shore exploration to be launched by a company other than Petroleos Mexicanos, the main oil company in Mexico. Petroleos Mexicanos has had a monopoly in the industry since 1938.

The well has a Zama-1 classification, and is in the Sureste Basin, off the state of Tabasco. The oil well can hold between 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude oil, according to Premier. The drilling process is expected to take about 90 days, and will cost Premier around $16 million. The three companies that are collaborating on the well won their prospect rights in 2015, during the first bidding round. This occurred after Mexico voting to allow private investments for the purpose of reviving the oil industry in the country.

Elaine Reynolds, an analyst for Edison Investment Research Ltd., in London, stated that this new well will be watched closely by the oil industry. Reynolds states that the reason for this is because the well is the first non-Pemex well drilled since the start of the energy reform process in Mexico. She also suggests that the well will be successful in terms of production, due to the basin’s structure.

Charlie Sharp, an analyst for Canacord Genuity Ltd., also stated that because of the implications in the Mexican market, the well will be one of the most interesting for exploration, particularly for this year.

Talos will serve as the well operator. The company has a 35% stake in the oil well venture. Sierra has 40% and Primer owns 25%, according to an official Premier statement.
Talos is known for its entrepreneurial spirit and collaborative efforts with fellow team members and other businesses, including organizations in Mexico.

Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega takes Control over The Mexico Media Industry

The Mexican media industry is diverse, and in a span of just a few years, there has been a remarkable change.

Media houses could not get involved in any news that contradicted with the will of the government. However, with the increased media freedom across the globe, the Mexican government adjusted over time, and today the Mexican media enjoys freedom more than most countries across the world. Individuals like Alfonso de Angoitia Noriega the current Vice President of Grupo Televisa, S.A. have played a major role in liberating the industry. Grupo Televisa, S.A is one of the prominent media companies in Mexico.

According to Eva Moskowitz, it was their responsibility to make accessible, the learning materials offered at the charter schools.

Mission Possible

Cassio Audi’s Outstanding Musical Life

Introduction
A look at Cassio Audi’s early music career leaves a lot to desire especially in comparison to his 23-year financial careers as a business consultant. He is a man who started his music career as a teenager in the company of four other gentlemen who together they formed a rock band called the Viper in 1985. As a member of this band, he served as the lead drummer: a role that he played more actively with the passion and dedication required of a musician that is on a mission to stardom.
As a Drummer
To his fans, he was only known as one skillful drummer, but to his band members he was more than this. Cassio was just a gem to them. If he was not doing the drums, he was silently composing hit after hit. Additionally, he was the vocalist behind some of the group’s notable tracks such as the Killera, Princess from Hell and many other tracks that rocked the Brazilian airwaves. It should also be evident that from the success of these tracks, the group was able to consolidate and bring forth an album entitled the Soldiers of Sunrise.
Breakthrough for the Band
It is through the huge success of this album that acted as the final breakthrough for the band. They made major strides in international tours, staging performances in all corners of the world and this made their reputation more pronounced as a Brazilian rock band that sings in English, despite it existing as a second language. Instead of such an issue tearing the group apart, it even built them much stronger. It is through this time that Cassio went ahead to compose more songs that leant towards neo-classical styles. These songs were used in their 1989 second album called the Theatre of Fate. After its release, Cassio quit the group to advance his interest in business study.

Youths have looked up to him as a role model, and his colleagues in the profession have also expressed their thoughts about him being a great friend and a good influence. Ricardo Tosto de Oliveira Carvalho is also one of the reasons why the younger Brazilian generation wanted to pursue law, as he showed them how it feels like being a lawyer who expresses his opinions vocally. However, he also added that the younger generation should pursue law not just because of him, but it should be because of their passion. He stated that if law students are not passionate enough, they would never succeed.

However, studying Brazilian law is not an easy task. The law of Brazil is derived from the European law systems, so the students must understand how laws are made an imposed in Europe.

Fabletics is a company that really pays attention to its customers to provide the best quality and service possible. Kate Hudson, the founder of Fabletics, reviews the sales form the company every week and gathers information in order to access what is selling and what is not. then she adjusts her collections accordingly-if it’s not selling then she removes it from her store. When new members sign up to join the VIP subscription service, they are strongly encouraged to take the Lifestyle Quiz. This quiz helps them to get the best VIP service based on their preferences and it helps Hudson to get a better idea of what her customers want and what will sell.

 

Hudson recently expanded her range of sizes for her active wear and it now includes sizes form XXS to 3X. Hudson wants to not only encourage people to become more healthy and live healthier lifestyles, but she wants them to feel great in their skin. She feels that if you have a cute outfit to put ion when you work out it can motivate you to get moving. Plus you’ll feel great dong it since you know you look great.

 

In only four short years, Fabletics has gained over 21 million followers on Twitter and has opened up 18 retail stores. Fabletics has become popular for many reasons, one of them being that they offer great active wear for a fraction of the cost of its competitors. Fabletics has gained 1.2 members monthly in eight different countries as well. The VIP club gives its members substantial discounts for high-quality clothing that would be outrageously priced elsewhere. Plus, its members get the real VIP treatment-personalized service. You just can’t beat that.

 

Hudson believes that it is important to believe in yourself and to take risks. If you do that then you can become fearless and accomplish anything.
