MANCHESTER, NH -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Management of QED Connect, Inc. (OTC Pink: QEDN) today provided updates regarding the recent acquisition of AFON 2010, Ltd. by Energy Today, Inc. (OTC Pink: NRGT), a portfolio company of QED.
On January 2nd, Energy Today, Inc. filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission disclosing its purchase of 100% of the equity interest in AFON 2010 Ltd. for 2,666,000 shares of Energy Today, Inc. AFON 2010 Ltd. was formed in the Ukraine as an oil and gas company to hold oil and gas leases in western Ukraine. These concessions are located within the South Terenyans'ka area in the Nadvirnyans'ky district of Ivano-Frankivs'k region 5 km northeast from the village of Kosmach.
The Western Ukrainian Geophysical Prospecting Expedition (WUGRE), an independent oil and gas consulting firm, performed the Geological Survey on AFON 2010's leases. A team of seven Geologists concluded that the concession is viable and should be prepared for deep well drilling. The WUGRE was set up in 1948 as the basis of State Geophysical Company "Ukrheofizyka" for assisting in expanding oil and gas survey works in the western region of Ukraine and Moldavia. They have completed over 150,000 running kilometers of seismic profiles.
The survey by WUGRE on AFON 2010's leases determined that the concessions have proven and probable reserves of 16,357 thousand metric tons. The characteristics of subsoil report validates that the reserves can be classified as Category 3 (proven and probable).
According to the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), 1 ton of oil equals 7.33 barrels of oil. This means that AFON 2010's total of 16,357 thousand tons of reserves equals 119,896,810 barrels of proven and probable reserves. The SPE and the World Petroleum Council (WPC, formerly World Petroleum Congresses), define proven reserves as having an over 90% chance of being recoverable with probable reserves having a minimum of 50% chance of being present.
AFON 2010 Ltd.'s Special Permit for the use of subsoil for its property leases was approved by the State Department of Ecology and Natural Resources in Ivano-Frankivs'k region of 14.12.2005/ecological card number 293/; Ivano-Frankivs'k Regional Council -- 15.03.2001 number 14-194/112/313; Ministry of Energy -- 04.02.2010 number 08/31-189/1 for a period of 5 years.
Additional information and supporting documentation of the acquisition can be found at the Company's website under the Natural Resources section:
Tom Makmann, President and CEO commented, "We believe that the acquisition of AFON has the possibility to provide QED and its portfolio company, Energy Today, substantial value. The spot price of crude oil is over $90 a barrel and upon completing the funding and development of the concession, the resulting income should offer the shareholders increased value."
QED recently updated its financials and obtained OTC Current Information Status.
In response to several shareholder inquires, the Company does not have any current plans for a reverse.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
