Perisson Announces New Oil Resources Evaluation on Its VMM-17 Oil Property in Colombia

MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Perisson Petroleum Corporation (CSE: POG) ("Perisson" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that as part of its continuous revision of historical technical data on its VMM-17 oil property located in the Middle Magdalena Basin, in the Province of Tolima, central Colombia, the VMM-17 project is now estimated to contain 32 million barrels of contingent resources, and 350 million barrels of unrisked prospective resources. This latest review was completed by Netherlands, Sewell & Associates, Inc. ("NSAI") of Dallas, Texas, an independent qualified reserves evaluator.

The 51-101 Report filed in 2012 (the "2012 Report") by a Qualified Reserves Evaluator, other than NSAI, allocated 3 million barrels of contingent resources and 109 million barrels of unrisked prospective resources to the VMM-17 property.

This updated Resources Report from NSAI was produced with the support of Perisson technical staff, in parallel with an effort to optimize the location of its upcoming three exploratory wells. NSAI were the consultants originally engaged in 2010 by Morichal Sinoco, S.A., ("MSSA"- Perisson's 100% Colombian subsidiary) to interpret all existing 2D seismic data and geophysical well logs.

The 2013 re-evaluation of the data in the 2012 Resources Report led NSAI to confirm an increase in contingent resources (where applicable) and unrisked prospective resources on three VMM-17 prospects, known as Mendez, Yaguali Updip and Yaguali West. A fourth prospect, Lumbi, was allocated new Contingent Resources and Unrisked Prospective Resources.

NSAI had performed the initial porosity and oil saturation calculations for all prospects, in 2010. These values were the foundation for all subsequent Resource Evaluation work, and are unchanged. The key technical difference in the 2013 update is that NSAI's interpretation of VMM-17 reservoirs allocates somewhat greater reservoir thickness and areal extent, compared to the 2012 estimates.

The following table provides a summary of the evaluation report resources.

Duncan MacKenzie, geo, (QC) P. Geol. (AB), Perisson's Geologist, states: "We are very comfortable with NSAI's contingent and unrisked prospective resources".

The resource evaluation were carried out in compliance with National Instrument 51-101 and standards set out in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (the "COGE Handbook") prepared jointly by the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (Calgary Chapter) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy & Petroleum (Petroleum Society).

This press release was reviewed by NSAI and Duncan MacKenzie who are Qualified Persons in compliance with National Instrument 51-101.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
