CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- Crown Point Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE: CWV) ("Crown Point" or "the Company") is pleased to announce that a drilling contract has been signed with San Antonio International to provide a drilling rig for our initial ten well drilling program in Tierra del Fuego (25.78% Working Interest).
The drilling rig is expected to arrive in Tierra del Fuego in March with drilling operations on the Las Violetas concession expected to commence in early April. The term of the contract is one year with provisions for extending the term.
The initial ten well program on the Las Violetas concession will consist of eight development wells in the Los Flamencos gas pool and two exploration wells, one on the Puesto Quince prospect and another near the southern San Luis natural gas pool. All of the drilling locations have been fully imaged with 3-d seismic. The Puesto Quince prospect lies up dip of the Los Flamencos and Los Patos producing pools and is adjacent to the Rio Chico gas pool. The feature has a seismically mapped areal extent of approximately 50 km2. The San Luis exploration prospect has been defined with 3-d seismic and is located on a separate fault block near the San Luis gas pool which to date has produced approximately 32 BCF of Natural Gas.
Concurrent with the commencement of drilling operations a fracture stimulation program will be performed on four producing wells in the Los Flamencos natural gas pool and on well in the San Luis Field. A similar program undertaken in 2010 significantly improved deliverability from five wells in the Los Flamencos pool.
Crown Point in March will be re-submitting its application to participate in the New Gas Natural Gas Incentive program. This program provides financial incentives to producers who increase their production of natural gas. Incremental natural gas production above an agreed production decline curve can receive up to $7.50/mcf under the program.

Analogous Information: Certain information contained herein may be considered "analogous information" as defined in National Instrument 51-101 - Standards of Disclosure of Oil and Gas Activities ("NI 51-101"). Such analogous information has not been prepared in accordance with NI 51-101 and the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook. In particular, this press release: notes that the Puesto Quince prospect lies up dip of the Los Flamencos and Los Patos producing pools and is adjacent to the Rio Chico gas pool; notes that the San Luis exploration prospect is located on a separate fault block near the San Luis gas pool which to date has produced 32 BCF of natural gas; and notes that a fracture stimulation program similar to the one to be undertaken on five producing wells in the Los Flamencos natural gas pool was undertaken in 2010 and significantly improved deliverability from five adjacent wells in the pool. Such information is based on independent public data and public information recently obtained from government sources and the Company has no way of verifying the accuracy of such information and cannot determine whether the source of the information is independent. Such information has been presented to help demonstrate that: hydrocarbons may be present in commercially recoverable quantities in the Puesto Quince prospect and the San Luis prospect; and that the fracture stimulation program to be performed on four wells in the Los Flamencos pool and one well in the San Luis pool may improve deliverability. There is no certainty that such results will be achieved by the Company and such information should not be construed as an estimate of future reserves or resources or future production levels.
Anticipated Results: Certain information contained herein may be considered to be "anticipated results" as defined in NI 51-101. In particular, this press release discloses details regarding the seismically mapped areal extent of the Puesto Quince prospect. For a discussion of the risks and the level of uncertainty associated with the potential recovery of resources from our interests in the Las Violetas concession, see our annual information form dated April 24, 2013.
Forward looking information: Certain information set forth in this document, including: the details of our proposed drilling program in Tierra del Fuego, including the number, type and location of wells to be drilled and the timing for commencement of drilling; the details of our proposed fracture stimulation program in the Los Flamencos natural gas pool; and the proposed timing for submitting our application to participate in the New Gas Natural Gas Incentive program and the anticipated terms of such program; is considered forward-looking information, and necessarily involve risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond Crown Point's control. Such risks include but are not limited to: risks associated with oil and gas exploration, development, exploitation, production, marketing and transportation; risks associated with operating in Argentina, including risks of changing government regulations (including the adoption of, amendments to, or the cancellation of government incentive programs or other laws and regulations relating to commodity prices, taxation, currency controls and export restrictions, in each case that may adversely impact us), expropriation/nationalization of assets, price controls on commodity prices, inability to enforce contracts in certain circumstances, the potential for a sovereign debt default or a hyperinflationary economic environment, and other economic and political risks; loss of markets and other economic and industry conditions; volatility of commodity prices; currency fluctuations; and economic or industry condition changes.
Actual results, performance or achievements could differ materially from those expressed in, or implied by, the forward-looking information and, accordingly, no assurance can be given that any events anticipated by the forward-looking information will transpire or occur, or if any of them do, what benefits that we will derive therefrom.

Much of the value of DevOps comes from a (renewed) focus on measurement, sharing, and continuous feedback loops. In increasingly complex DevOps workflows and environments, and especially in larger, regulated, or more crystallized organizations, these core concepts become even more critical. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, will show how, by focusing on 'metrics that matter,' you can provide objective, transparent, and meaningfu...

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...
