Target Energy Limited Announces Sydney #2 Production Climbs to 395 BOEPD -- a 25 % Increase From Initial Flow Rate

WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- US-focused oil and gas producer Target Energy Limited ("Target") (OTCQX: TEXQY) (ASX: TEX) is pleased to provide an update on its Fairway Project in West Texas.

  • Sydney #2 is presently flowing at 395 BOEPD (311 BOPD with 503 mcfgd) from the Fusselman Formation -- exceeding the initial high-end production rate (announced 19 February 2014) by 25%.

  • Drilling has commenced at BOA 12 #3, considered a low risk, step-out well situated approximately 550m (1,800 ft) southeast of the Company's 2011 BOA 12 #1 well. The well is expected to be in an up-dip position which should greatly improve the prospectivity of the Fusselman formation. The well will test both the Wolfberry and Fusselman sections and is expected to take 15 days to drill to the planned Total Depth of 3,048m (10,000 ft).

  • At Wagga Wagga #1, the completion and testing program remains underway. The Devonian section was fracture stimulated on 21 February 2014 at a depth of approximately 2,850m after previously recovering oil while swabbing the well. The well is presently recovering load-water.

Managing Director, Laurence Roe commented on the increase in production at Sydney #2: "We are delighted with the 25% increase in production at Sydney #2 -- the rate appears to have stabilised at around 395 BOEPD -- a very good result.

"We are also back to drilling with the first well in our 2014 Fairway program, the BOA 12#3, which commenced drilling operations earlier this week. This is a low risk, step-out location close to our BOA 12 #1 oil well. In the light of the very good results seen so far in Sydney #2, this should be a very exciting well.

"At Wagga Wagga #1, we have completed the single stage fracture stimulation of the Devonian section -- we are presently recovering load water from the frac. As mentioned previously, we are also progressing plans to proceed with a more extensive frac interval, production from which would be additional to any production from the Devonian."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
