Talos Energy is proving its success through being named by the Huston Chronicles as the #1 Top Workplace in the Huston area for companies under 150 employees and some of it’s success can be contributed to three men with years of knowledge and experience. Stephen Heitzman, one of these three, studied at Texas Tech University and is one of the founders of Talos Energy. He is serving as the Vice President Chief operations officer and brings to the table experience from Gryphon Exploration, headquarted in Huston Texas and founded in 2000, playing the part in one of the start up groups.
Tim Duncan, who was also there at the beginnings of Talos and is currently on the Board of Directors along with eight others, studied Petroleum Engineering at the Mississippi State University where he received honors. In addition to the work he has done with Talos, he has also done incredible work with Phoenix Exploration Company, where he was the Vice President of Business and worked with Phoenix Apache Corporation shortly before moving on to Talos.Named another founder is John Parker previously a geologist with education from Louisiana State University. Before starting this journey with Duncan and Heitzman, he worked with Shell Oil company.
Talos Energy seems to be filled with experience even from the beginnings. The company doesn’t just focus on production but also exploration. Talos also finds it a priority to give back to their community through several different organizations including, Houston Food Bank, Houston Children’s Charity, American Cancer Society, and several more. They offer opportunities for investment and Tim Duncan, previously mentioned founder, has expressed how hard working their team is.As of now Talos Energy is focusing in on five different locations in the Gulf of Mexico but also occasionally work on the south shore of Louisiana where they hold years of experience.
