Premier is pleased to announce that it, together with its joint venture partners Talos Energy (operator) and Sierra Oil & Gas, has been awarded Blocks 2 and 7 in Mexico’s Round 1 held in Mexico City on 15 July. The Blocks contain numerous leads in established and emerging plays, located in the shallow water Sureste Basin, a proven and prolific hydrocarbon province in the Gulf of Mexico.

Blocks 2 and 7 contain Tertiary clastic plays, typical of the Salinas sub-basin. The forward plan is to acquire, evaluate and reprocess 3D seismic data with a view to firming up drilling locations towards the end of 2016.

Tony Durrant, Chief Executive, commented: “We are very pleased with the outcome of this round which provides Premier with a low cost entry point to emerging plays in a proven oil and gas province.”

The JV comprises Talos Energy (operator, 45 per cent), Sierra Oil & Gas (45 per cent) and Premier (10 per cent).
