Talos Energy Hits Pay At Tornado In GoM

Houston-based Talos Energy said Jan. 16 that the Tornado 3 well hit pay in the Green Canyon area of the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

Drill to a total depth of 21,600 ft by the Noble Don Taylor rig, the well logged about 200 ft gross and 130 ft net of true vertical pay, the company said in an update given as part of its 2019 operating and financial guidance. The well is expected to be online by early second-quarter 2019, producing between 10,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) and 15,000 boe/d.

Talos has a 65% working interest. Partner Kosmos Energy holds the remaining interest.
