The Company's annual report, MD&A and financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 have been filed on Tuscany's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and are available on Tuscany's web site www.tuscanyenergy.com
Detailed reserve information is contained in Tuscany's Statement of Reserves Data and Other Oil and Gas Information for the year ended December 31, 2013, which is available on Tuscany's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. It should not be assumed that the estimates of net present value of future net revenue presented above represent the fair market value of the reserves, as there is no assurance that the forecast prices and costs assumptions contained therein will be attained and variances could be material
ADVISORY: This news release contains certain forward-looking information and statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. The use of any of the words "expect", "anticipate", "continue", "estimate", "may", "will", "project", "should", "believe", "plans", "intends" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking information or statements. In particular, but without limiting the forgoing, this news release contains forward-looking information and statements pertaining to the following: the volumes and estimated net present value of Tuscany's oil and gas reserves; and Tuscany's drilling plans.
The estimates of Tuscany's reserves and the net present value of the future net revenue attributable thereto provided herein are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered or that the forecast prices and costs assumptions such estimates are based upon will be attained. In addition, forward-looking statements or information are based on a number of material factors, expectations or assumptions of Tuscany which have been used to develop such statements and information but which may prove to be incorrect. Although Tuscany believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements or information are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on forward- looking statements because Tuscany can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. In addition to other factors and assumptions which may be identified herein, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: that Tuscany will continue to conduct its operations in a manner consistent with past operations; results from drilling and development activities; the continued and timely development of infrastructure in areas of new production; the accuracy of the estimates of Tuscany's reserve volumes; continued availability of debt and equity financing and cash flow to fund Tuscany's current and future plans and expenditures; the impact of increasing competition; the general stability of the economic and political environment in which Tuscany operates; the general continuance of current industry conditions; the timely receipt of any required regulatory approvals; the ability of Tuscany to obtain qualified staff, equipment and services in a timely and cost efficient manner; drilling results; the ability of the operator of the projects in which Tuscany has an interest in to operate the field in a safe, efficient and effective manner; the ability of Tuscany to obtain financing on acceptable terms; future commodity prices; currency, exchange and interest rates; regulatory framework regarding royalties, taxes and environmental matters in the jurisdictions in which Tuscany operates; and the ability of Tuscany to successfully market its oil and natural gas products.
The forward-looking information and statements included in this news release are not guarantees of future performance and should not be unduly relied upon. Such information and statement, including the assumptions made in respect thereof, involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking information or statements including, without limitation: changes in commodity prices; changes in the demand for or supply of Tuscany's products; unanticipated operating results or production declines; changes in tax or environmental laws, royalty rates or other regulatory matters; changes in development plans of Tuscany or by third party operators of Tuscany's properties, increased debt levels or debt service requirements; inaccurate estimation of Tuscany's oil and gas reserve volumes; limited, unfavourable or a lack of access to capital markets; increased costs; a lack of adequate insurance coverage; the impact of competitors; and certain other risks detailed from time-to-time in Tuscany's public disclosure documents, (including, without limitation, those risks identified in this news release). Furthermore, the forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as at the date of this news release and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.
Where amounts are expressed on a barrel of oil equivalent (BOE) basis, natural gas volumes have been converted to barrels of oil on the basis of six thousand cubic feet (mcf) per barrel (bbl). BOE figures may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion of six thousand cubic feet per barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6 mcf: 1 bbl, using a conversion on a 6 mcf: 1 bbl basis may be misleading as an indication of value. References to oil in this discussion include crude oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs).
NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
