Talos Energy is an oil and gas company formed in 2012, under the partnership of Riverstone Holdings and Apollo Global Management. The company has made a name a name for its expertise in exploration and production of offshore hydrocarbons in the Gulf of Mexico.
Before the establishment of Talos Energy, the current management group of the company had operated two gulf companies; Gryphon Exploration Co. and Phoenix Exploration Co., with significant returns to equity investors.
The company maintains a deeply experienced senior management team, which has worked together for over a decade. The team has a track record in using innovative techniques to develop a valuable portfolio of investment frontiers within the oil exploration and Production industry.
The main focus of Talos Energy is to maintain a team of management with the right information in Energy and petroleum exploration. The team creates the strength needed to face the challenges posed by external changes in the industry with every aspect of the business in mind.
Timothy Duncan, the expert at the helm, is the brain behind Talos Energy. He has an in-depth knowledge of the oil and gas industry, which is backed by his educational background. He studied Petroleum Engineering at Mississippi State University and later earned an MBA from Bauer Executive Program at the University of Houston. Additionally, Duncan is a very dedicated professional, who derives satisfaction from turning risky ventures into a profitable business.
Monetary incentives are not the major part of the motivation for the Talos Energy workforce. Teamwork and sacrifice is the driving force that has propelled the company to the top of the oil and gas industry. For this reason, the Houston Chronicle recognized Talos Energy as the Top Workplace in the Houston area for companies with less than 150 employees. The company has since maintained the position for five consecutive years.
For the efficient and smooth running of the company’s operations, Timothy Duncan is assisted by Stephen Heitzman. The visionary business executive doubles up as the Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Talos Energy. Stephen Heitzman’s extemporary service in the oil and gas sector earned him the Distinguished Engineer Award in 2015. He holds a bachelors of Science degree in mechanical engineering from Texas Tech University.
