HOUSTON, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Talos Energy Inc. ("Talos" or the "Company") (NYSE: TALO) today provided some expected benefits to the Company if the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 passes into law in its current form. The bill was approved by the Senate on Sunday, August 7, and is expected to be voted by the House of Representatives on Friday, August 12. If approved by the House, it is expected that President Biden will sign the Act into law.
The inclusion of several favorable provisions in the Act will benefit both Talos's Upstream business and its Carbon Capture and Sequestration business, as described below.
Offshore Oil & Gas Lease Sales:
Carbon Capture and Sequestration:
President and Chief Executive Officer Timothy S. Duncan commented: "We have always believed maintaining offshore leasing in the Gulf of Mexico is good energy policy that provides energy security, energy production and energy jobs in one of the lowest carbon-intensive oil producing basins in the world. The acreage we were the high bidders on in Lease Sale 257 have identified drilling opportunities that will be actionable in our longer-term drilling calendar. Additionally, consistent leasing is an important part of our strategy of responsible energy development. We are also excited about the 45Q tax credit expansion and its potential impact on our growing CCS business. We believe we have put together one of the most attractive portfolios available for permanent carbon sequestration in close proximity to several industrial hubs where these credits will allow decarbonization to become a priority. There is no doubt the legislation is an important step for offshore energy security and CCS development along the United States Gulf Coast."
