CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- United Hydrocarbon International Corp. is announcing the successful results of drilling two wells on its Production Sharing Contract area in the Doba Basin, located in southern Chad.
The "Belanga North-1" exploration well was drilled to a total depth of 1,392 meters and encountered three oil-bearing sand intervals; two in the targeted Upper Cretaceous 'YO' sands with a combined thickness of 16.5 meters (net), and a previously untested 5-meter (net) sand in a shallower horizon. A 14.5 meter section of the 'YO' sand was perforated and flow tested. At the end of a 15-hour cleanup and flow test period with an 18% pressure drawdown, the final flow rate was 680 barrels of oil per day with no water. Oil was also recovered from the previously untested 5-meter thick sand with a wireline testing tool. Subject to further analysis, the oil recovered during the flow tests appears to be similar in quality to the oil in nearby fields that have been in commercial production since 2004.
The Company also drilled a well at "Belanga 1A" to further delineate the oil discovery at Belanga 1, originally drilled in the 1970's by a previous operator. The well encountered a 9-meter oil zone in the 'YO' sand, approximately 50% thicker than the oil zone in the original discovery well. Crude oil was produced to surface before the flow test was terminated due to a mechanical problem. The Company plans to conduct a long-term flow test at a later date.
"We are very encouraged by the significant discovery results of our 2014 drilling program in the DOC and DOD blocks in southern Chad," commented Ned Goodman, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer. "There is substantial additional evaluation work ahead of us to prove the ultimate value of the overall drilling program. Extensive 3D seismic survey and development wells are needed to confirm the commercial viability of the Belanga discovery, as well as substantial drilling to prove the viability of the potential magnitude of the Lake Chad area."
In connection with the Belanga discovery, the independent members of the Company's board of directors have agreed to grant a $10 million discovery bonus to Dundee Corporation in recognition of the contribution made by the Dundee Group and its senior officers and directors, towards the success of the Belanga discovery, especially including its extensive risky financial support during a time that the Company was unable to secure alternative financing. Dundee has agreed to accept 20 million shares of the Company in lieu of paying cash for this discovery bonus and for Dundee's assistance.
In addition, and in order to simplify the capital structure of the Company, the board of directors has removed the necessity of the Company's shares trading above certain specified values in order for those holders of Performance Warrants to exercise their warrants. This will allow holders of the warrants to purchase shares of the Company at the exercise price of the warrant at their discretion.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

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...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.

Updating DevOps to the latest production data slows down your development cycle. Probably it is due to slow, inefficient conventional storage and associated copy data management practices. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in Product and Solution at Tintri, will talk about DevOps and cloud-focused storage to update hundreds of child VMs (different flavors) with updates from a master VM in minutes, saving hours or even days in each development cycle. He will also...
