The political donor and philanthropist George Soros has recently made an impact on the U.S. political landscape for the second time in the 21st-century in his $25 million in donations made to the campaign of Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Hungarian born Holocaust survivor is reported by Forbes to have built a personal fortune of more than $25 billion and taken his place among the richest people on the planet; what makes the story of George Soros even more impressive is the fact he has created a fortune from the ground up after spending his formative years studying at the London School of Economics working as a waiter and porter to pay for his education and more information click here.
Politico reports the latest installment in George Soros’ important work on the U.S. political front comes amid his personal fears over the racist rhetoric and policy options announced by the majority of Republicans during the 2016 Presidential election cycle. Particular ire was drawn from George Soros by the words and actions of leading Republican candidates, Ted Cruz and Donald Trump; since the election of President Donald Trump to The White House, Soros has pledged his support to the Democracy Alliance he helped found following the election defeat of John Kerry in2004 to incumbent President George W. Bush. During the 2016 Presidential election cycle, George Soros threw his weight behind the campaign of Hillary Clinton and the many different groups who backed her campaign and pledged to protect the rights of the millions of people from minority groups who are being stripped of their voting rights by conservative lawmakers at local levels and Twitter.com.
The U.S. democratic system has been under attack in the view of George Soros which is one of the main reasons for his decision to return to the level of political giving he once described as “odious’. Soros has already provided his financial support to the End Citizens United campaign in the buildup to the 2016 elections and kept a promise to Clinton made following the decision to back Barrack Obama in the 2008 election campaign. Soros pulled out of the 2008 and 2012 election campaigns as he felt the liberal agenda promised by President Obama had not been delivered upon by the former resident of The White House. In recent interviews, George Soros explained he had not even met President Obama since he won the election and believed his decision to ignore the candidacy of Clinton in 2008 was the wrong one. Completing the liberal agenda he cares so passionately about includes ensuring minority groups in the U.S. are given representation in the criminal justice system and resulted in Soros pledging his support in local elections for Democrats with similar beliefs to his own and learn more about George Soros.

Mexico’s oil and gas industry has been struggling for a while. This is in large part due to the fact that they nationalized the industry in 1938. For almost 80 years, the only company that could sink wells and drill of the coastal waters of Mexico was the nationalized monopoly called Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex). However, due to failing numbers and a suffering Mexican economy, the government finally decided to open up its energy market to private investment again.
In 2015, a bidding process took place in which three companies came out ahead: Talos Energy out of Houston, Premier Oil from London, and Sierra Oil and Gas from Mexico. The international project is under way, with the well being sunk off the Sureste Basin near the state of Tabasco, Mexico. The well is estimated to have anywhere from 100 to 500 million barrels of crude, according to experts. Because of this, combined with the international investment going on, it is attracting a lot of industry attention.
The split of the profits will go to the companies in certain percentages. Sierra will receive 40%, Talos 35%, and Premier 25%. Time will tell how successful the project is, but the geology and location of the well promise great results, industry experts predict and more information click here.
Talos Energy is leading the way on the project. The Houston-based company was founded from former oil and gas employees of another holding firm. With hundreds of millions of dollars of investment, they started the company and have since grown it rapidly. They have already acquired another oil and gas company called Helix Energy Solutions for $600 million and what Talos Energy knows.
The company’s main focus is on the discovery, drilling, and production of oil off the Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico. The company is already growing with an estimated $500 of revenue this year. Thanks to the private company’s growth, employees are well compensated by having a share of the equity. The management says this motivates people to get along as a team. In addition to the finances, there are additional perks such as daycares at the office and happy hours to relax on Fridays and Talos Energy’s lacrosse camp.
