In response to recent trends in oil and gas commodity markets, Talos Energy is reducing its previous 2020 capital and operating expenditure guidance. Spending targets have been lowered by more than $125 million to an unspecified amount. Prior guidance was $520-545 million, with $280-285 million to be spent offshore the US.

Marathon Oil’s first modern completion in the western fairway of the Louisiana Austin Chalk is on flowback and still cleaning up, but the 6,400-ft lateral has already delivered 2,650 boe/d (45% oil) on a restricted choke at flowing wellhead pressure of more than 8,000 psi. The gas-oil ratio, oil gravity of 49°API and watercut are consistent with pre-drill expectations. Marathon expects that FTP will be strong across the entire western fairway. With early results confirming the company’s...
