For nearly 80 years it was impossible for energy companies to bypass the power of a sole monopoly operating in Mexico’s waters. But this year marks the first time the Mexican government has reversed its policy in order to invite private investment, and its having a lot of people wondering about the future.
Talos Energy, a oil company based in Houston, Texas, formed a partnership with Premiere Oil and Sierra Oil back in 2015 when the government first announced its relaxing on drilling laws in its territories. After more than a year of lobbying, the joint venture secured first rights and began drilling efforts in May of this year. It marks the very first time a foreign enterprise has had access to crude in those waters since 1938.
Drilling efforts continue at the Zama-1 well in the Sureste Basin off the coast of Tobasco. According to their estimates, somewhere between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil can be extracted from this location. Those are claimed to be conservative estimates, and they’ll only have 90 days to meet those projections before their permit expires. Its expected to cost these partners an approximate $16 million to fund.
Speculators see this new drilling in Mexico is a boon to the energy industry that will likely go unmatched in terms of interest in 2017. Edison Investment Research states that it expects the completion of this run to set the tone of Mexico’s willingness to accept more foreign investment in energy. It will also draw the attention of other big energy companies looking for new locations to drill as well as other nations that are considering expanding their energy industries.

Orthopedic surgery can be an invasive procedure if it involves a more severe condition of the musculoskeletal structure. The most invasive surgeries are joint replacements.
A common condition related to joint replacements is arthritis pain. A knee replacement, also referred to as an arthoplasty, is one of the most common surgeries conducted by an orthopedic surgeon. It is estimated this type of orthopedic surgery is completed more than a half million times yearly in the United States. The procedure will involve the damaged knee being carved out and replaced with plastic or metal elements to fill in the space for smoother movement of the joint. The knee joint is then fused together with the thigh bone, shin bone, and knee cap using a special bonding material, such as acrylic cement.
A hip replacement is also related to arthritis and it is more widespread among elderly patients. Similar to a knee replacement, the intent of a hip replacement surgery is to establish smoother movement of the joint; however, the patient typically receives a prosthetic implant to replace the hip. After recovery, which can take four to six weeks, patients are able to move much more freely. Patients can go the remaining of their lives free of pain and without any side effects from the surgery.
