Far East Energy Announces Further Build In Gas Production; Output Reaches 1.68MMcf/d On January 7, 2014

HOUSTON, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Far East Energy Corporation (OTCBB:FEEC), the U.S. listed company that operates the Shouyang Block Coalbed Methane (CBM) Production Sharing Contract (PSC) in Shanxi Province, People's Republic of China, announces a continued rise in gas production from the Shouyang Block since the latest release issued December 31, 2013.

Following the December 31st announcement that the bridge facility with Standard Chartered Bank has been amended to extend the facility's maturity date to April 15, 2014, and that gas production at Shouyang had reached 1,569,270 cubic feet per day (1,569 Mcf/d), the Company is pleased to announce that as of January 6, 2014, production from the Shouyang Block has reached 1,676,518 cubic feet per day (1,677 Mcf/d). 

This is up a further 7% from the production figure released on December 31, 2013 and up 127% from the 738 Mcf/d produced in the week ending November 12, 2013.  Production growth continues to be seen from both new and older wells.

Commenting, CEO Mike McElwrath said, "Since early November, we have seen gas production increase by almost 130%.  This rapid and steady rise in production could not have come at a better time as our gas price, inclusive of current subsidies, has increased to RMB 1.95/m3, equivalent to US$9.12/Mcf, on January 1, 2014 and SCB extended its facility on December 31, 2013.  As a result, we enter the new year riding a wave of good news, well-positioned to accomplish our strategic goals."

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
