Online Activism Comes Of Age With Avaaz

August 16, 2017 - Author: steph

The activist community has been growing in many different directions over the years with a continued movement towards the development of Online based activism opportunities through civil rights protection groups such as Avaaz. Established in January 2007, the Avaaz group has quickly grown to become one of the most important in the world with an Online membership base of almost 45 million by the Summer of 2017; one of the fastest growing civil rights and human rights activist groups in the world, Avaaz has become well known for providing Online petitions and direct action options in its bid to bring global pressure on those corporate and government agencies refusing to back the human rights of citizens.

Although Avaaz has become known for the respected work it has produced over the course of a single decade that has resulted in a number of victories in the human rights arena, but the climate change work completed by Avaaz is equally impressive. Perhaps the biggest fight the world faces on a global stage is the development of positive action to control the changes taking place in the environment across the planet; as the Paris Climate Accord has been threatened by new global leaders the developing story of Avaaz as a popular group mobilizing global citizens across the planet.

The Avaaz movement has also played a major role in developing the protections taking place in marine areas of the world with Online petitions produced designed to develop the much needed marine reservations protecting the vulnerable sea creatures of the planet. Over 1.3 million Avaaz members signed the petition to create a wildlife preserve for marine animals that have been important in developing protected environments in an ocean that are free from the pollutants damaging these environments.

Landmark Oil Venture Headed by Talos Energy Starts in Mexico

July 10, 2017 - Author: steph

Oil drilling happens every day all over the world – but not always by private companies involved in a joint venture. That’s certainly the case in Mexico, where the oil-drilling industry has been nationalized and not open to private, global companies since the 1930s.

But now that’s all changing. Gone are the rules of 80 years ago. Mexico has just struck a deal with two global, private partners—Talos Energy of Houston, Texas, and Premiere Oil of London, England. This is the first private partnership the two companies have forged together and the first to be struck with Mexico. Together with state company Sierra Oil and Gas, the three oil companies have begun drilling in a brand new oil well estimated to hold 500 million barrels of oil.

The estimated $16-million oil drilling venture began May 21 in the Sureste Basin, near the Mexican state of Tabasco. Primarily funded by Premiere Oil, which holds a quarter stake in the project, ownership is divided at 40 percent for Sierra and 35 percent for Talos Energy. Industry anlaysts have noted that the geological slope of the Sureste Basin make it ideal for drilling and extracting oil – and that in 90 days the outfit could produce between 100 and 500 million crude oil barrels.

Known as Zama-1, the oil well will be a landmark experiment hopefully setting into play more private partnerships with Mexican oil companies and driving global competition for Mexican oil.

What is Talos Energy?

Begun in 2012, Talos Energy has years of experience in the oil industry. Before establishing Talos in Houston, founder Tim Duncan successfully established and sold two oil companies that drilled throughout the Gulf of Mexico.

Talos is thrilled to be part of this historic global venture, and sees it as a sign of future opportunity for drilling in Mexico and working with global partners. The company produces more than 16,000 barrels of crude oil a day and has a long history in Mexico. Today, it has more than 100 employees on the ground in the country and another 60 in Houston headquarters.
