NEW ORLEANS, March 11, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Treaty Energy Corporation (OTCQB: TECO) (http://www.treatyenergy.com), a growth-oriented international energy company, today announced it has retained Inspire Energy Services (www.inspireenergyservices.com) effective March 10, 2014 to conduct a full review of the Company's oil and gas operations and assets to further develop and enhance the Company's on-going oil and gas strategy.
Inspire is a group of petroleum engineers and business development experts who advise small public and private companies seeking investment in operated and non-operated oil and gas exploration. The consultants review reserves and recommend reserve value, property acquisition and financing strategy as well as direct operational efficiency. Inspire Energy Services advocates to management framing in reasonable stock price targets and works to disseminate that information through the management to the Company's current and potential investors.
In early March, Inspire representatives conducted an initial review of the Company's assets and recommended a test through March 9th of the Gray Sand on the Stockton #2 well. The Company, in conjunction with the recommendations from Inspire, installed a new pump jack on the Stockton #2 well. The Gray Sand zone produced signs of oil production; however Inspire believes that based on geological data that the upper zone in the Gardner Limestone will yield greater production potential. The Stockton #2 well yielded promising returns on its initial test.
The petroleum engineer and spokesman for Inspire evaluating Treaty Energy's assets with Inspire informs, "It is important to spend a reasonable amount of time doing longer less time-sensitive production tests before making long-term investment plans. Direct off-set wells to the Stockton #2 well have been consistent producers at fairly low water cuts. The Mitchell #3 and #4, located on the lease next door, were evidence of this consistent high-yield production." The Stockton #3, which was drilled immediately after the Stockton #2, remains uncompleted.
Inspire's spokesman continued with, "The production tests that we are conducting on the Stockton #2 will be used to develop completion plans for the Stockton #3. In addition, the information on the Stockton #2 and Mitchell lease, which was previously drilled by Treaty, will provide us the ability to develop a large scale drilling and completion strategy on the Kubacak lease, which is being looked at as a large scale investment project."
On the subject of Treaty Energy, Inspire's spokesman further commented that, "Inspire believes that Treaty Energy has not always had the benefit of a thorough engineering assessment of their field operations. Recent operations have been successful based on prior geological data. However, with the new drills on the Stockton and Kubacak leases, a thorough reservoir and production study needs to be done. Inspire intends to ensure that the dollars spent in the field yield the highest return per investment dollar and, more importantly, maximize oil and gas production."
In addition to the completions scheduled for the current lease holds in the oil leases in Taylor County Texas, Inspire has recommended reviewing additional acreage acquisitions in the Abilene area. Inspire has already begun to evaluate new projects beyond the Kubacak lease for the Company.
Inspire has also done a preliminary evaluation of the Company's Belize Operations and believes that there may be significant possibility of success in that area. The Company's Belize operations have been on hold since November of 2013 after it was unable to successfully retrieve a stuck packer from its San Juan #3 well. The Company has remained in negotiations with Princess Petroleum since then and has not committed to a full pull out of operations in the region. Inspire believes that with increased investment dollars in the region, a large multi-rig drilling project is very possible, but would require a complete restructuring and renegotiation of the project from both Treaty Belize Energy, LTD and Princess Petroleum. Nevertheless, the Company is actively seeking other possible international ventures in the region.
Despite significant positive changes to Company operations already, Inspire representatives are projecting several weeks before making specific recommendations. Inspire has indicated that in order to move the Company towards increased future success, several additional dramatic changes may be necessary to improve production and drilling operations.
Andrew V. Reid, the Company's current Chief Executive Officer, stated, "I am fully on-board with the changes that Inspire has already recommended and look forward to reviewing the future changes they will recommend. Treaty and its management have undertaken a tremendous effort to move the Company on the right path since its unsuccessful marginal well project in 2012. In the third quarter of 2013, Treaty posted its first net profit in Company history."
Mr. Reid added, "Now, we are looking to lead with oil and gas professionals on board. Several positions, including the CFO and CIO positions remain vacant and need to be filled. We have asked the Inspire team to recommend sound leadership including new management where necessary. Shareholders should rest assured that large scale positive changes are on the way."

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
