Worthington Initiates Heavy Oil Project in Kansas

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- Worthington Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: WGAS) ("Worthington" or the "Company"), an energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and drilling of oil and natural gas properties, takes this opportunity to provide an overview of The Barr Lease Project. At a time when most emerging oil companies can only follow big plays, Worthington Energy is leading the way. "The company plans to begin ordering equipment within 15 working days. At this time we estimate the Barr Project can be on stream within 6 to 8 weeks," says Worthington Energy Field Engineer, Tim Lewis.

Phase I production on the Barr lease is forecast to be 20 barrels of initial flush production settling in to 3 to 5 barrels of oil per day (bopd) with a steady increase to 10 bopd over the first 30 days of Thermal Enhancement. After the first 30 days, the company will then begin using Super Flow series surfactants developed by Oil-Chem Technology to augment the Thermal Enhancement. The Super Flow surfactants improve heavy oil recovery by reducing the viscosity of the oil (increasing mobility) through forming a water-external pseudo-emulsion.

Worthington projects the surfactant will cause a 30% to 100% increase in production that will continue to rise over the next 90 to 180 days as the field warms to optimum temperatures. Initial production for Phase I of the Barr Project is estimated to be approximately 180 bopd.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures.
