Santiago must have a grasp of good investment skills because he began his Cartonnage Company. He manufactured cardboards using cartons. This grew to one of the prestigious home décor company in Brazil.

Roberto Santiago did not forget his mission. In 1987, he bought the land that he would build the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall. He must have had a great strategy. This is because, after two years, the mall was complete.

The Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall has a lot of activities that people engage in for fun purposes. The mall has everyone covered despite their age. Their gaming facilities and playing stations for children. Their also beautiful views that people can enjoy as they enjoy a drink together. There also activities like food tasting that a family can enjoy together. The mall has numerous restaurants to ensure that everyone gets what they want. Their food range from traditional foods to all modern foods.

Then there is the Domus Hall. Here, the residents enjoy watching films in 3D. Those who have been here, say that the experience cannot be compared with any other experience. It is exciting and thrilling. They explain that you visit the scene and feel what the actor is experiencing. This is because of the great auditory range and a fantastic lighting system.

Apart from the entertainment sector, the Roberto Santiago Manaira Mall has boosted the economic growth of the residents. This is because the good infrastructure and social amenities in the area have attracted other investors. They are, therefore, enjoying a variety of products in their shopping. The presence of substitutes has also led to improved quality of products and great prices.

Talos Energy Makes ‘Historic’ Oil Strike in Mexican Waters

No private company has been allowed to drill an oil well in Mexico for 80 years – until now.

Earlier this year work began on a drill site in shallow waters off the shore of Mexican, a joint effort between three private companies, Talos Energy LLC based in Houston, Premier Oil, a British firm, and Sierra Oil & Gas, an independent Latin American company.

The new well has been labeled the ZAMA-1 and is in the Sureste Basin off the Mexican state of Tabasco. Engineers originally estimate the well could yield 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude – but they were stunned when the well came in at an estimated 1 billion barrels, according to a July 12 article in Reuters.

The contract to create the ZAMA-1 was handled through a bidding process after reforms Mexican invited private companies back in. The partners put together a winning bid in the first round.

Industry watchers are keeping a close eye on what may represents a new era of oil exploration for Mexico since it nationalized its petroleum industry in 1938. When oil was struck earlier this summer, analysts called it “historic.”

Houston-based Talos Energy is a private upstream oil and gas business that focuses its efforts on the Gulf Region. The company is associated with Apollo Global Management, LLC. Talos Energy prides itself on its expertise with propriety processing techniques and maintains a world class seismic database.

Company officials like to tout the “passion” Talos has for contributing new ideas and innovation. This drives its corporate culture forward in a highly competitive global environment. The HC Medi group ranked Talos Energy as a “Top Workplace” for the last four years in a row, including a “Top 100 Work Place” in 2015.

Talos Energy holds a 35% stake in the new ZAMA-1 well. It’s partners Premier Oil holds 25% and Sierra owns the remaining 40%.

Industry watcher Pablo Medina called the ZAMA-1 well “the most important achievement so far” of the Mexican energy reform policy. He said ZAMA-1 is among the 20 largest deposits of its kind found in shallow water in two decades.

The first week of 2016 has ended with the stock market closing higher than at the beginning of the week. Among the factors that helped the stock market close in a higher position than at the beginning of the week is the recovery of the oil prices. Among the influences of the oil prices was the hopeful outlook when it comes to the chances of a stimulus in the oversea regions. This has definitely proven to be a good week with other factors being considered. Chris Gaffney has stated that the market all hinges on the oil. People were at least able to slow down the fall of oil and getting it to rise in prices.

Expert investors definitely see this as a good sign. According to Joe Sowin of Highland Capital Management, the week came as a result of short covering.
