DENVER, CO -- (Marketwired) -- 05/15/14 -- 1st NRG Corp. (OTC Pink: FNRC) (PINKSHEETS: FNRC) is an exploration and production company currently engaged in the development of natural gas producing properties in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. Headquartered in Denver Colorado, our focus has been centered on our coal bed methane reserves where we hold a working interest in 42 producing wells, 8 permitted locations and 3,300 undeveloped acres. The Company is expanding its activities into one of North America's most exciting shale plays participating in a development of prospective acreage in SE Ohio encompassing approximately 7,000 acres.
The United States natural gas stocks are currently 982 BCF behind the historical five year average for storage levels and according to the EIA figures, in 2013 the United States averaged a withdrawal of 1.5 bcf/d for the year. Also in 2013, seasonal injections averaged approximately 9.5 bcf/d. So, in order to return to the five year average storage levels during this injection season, the United States needs to inject an additional 4.5 bcf/d for an average total injection rate of 15 bcf/. Currently the United States produces approximately 67.7 bcf/d and according to the EIA, natural gas consumption averaged 71.3 bcf/d in 2013. The shortfall between produced natural gas and consumption has been met historically by imports which averaged 8.5 bcf/d in 2013. What appears to be a tightening gas market is reflected in the overall price for natural gas, and more specifically in the Powder River Basin where we saw an average $1.67/mcf higher in the quarter ended March 31, 2014 when compared to the quarter one year earlier ended March 31, 2013.
At Clabaugh Ranch we have been slowing advancing toward the highly anticipated initial production from the 42-15 well drilled in December 2013. Infrastructure access issues have hampered our progress and the current operator of the field has been unresponsive to our requests and proposals. This lack of cooperation has pushed the Company to pursue other gathering, water disposal and electricity solutions. We are awaiting approval for our pending applications to use the ARID tool for water disposal, we have made arrangements for power and we are discussing our options to transport our natural gas production with three different gathering companies. The delay, while frustrating, will benefit the Company in the longer term as we will be in complete control of our expenses and operations.
In Ohio, the initial due diligence and cure periods have concluded with the Company and its operating partner purchasing the initial 40 acre drill site for the vertical test well. This well will be drilled through the Utica Shale approximately at 6,500 feet in depth. Currently land use agreements for the vertical test well and subsequent horizontal well are being completed. 1st NRG Corp holds a 20% working interest in the development and is carried in the drilling of the vertical test well.

The IoTs will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development proc...

We’ve worked with dozens of early adopters across numerous industries and will debunk common misperceptions, which starts with understanding that many of the connected products we’ll use over the next 5 years are already products, they’re just not yet connected. With an IoT product, time-in-market provides much more essential feedback than ever before. Innovation comes from what you do with the data that the connected product provides in order to enhance the customer experience and optimize busi...

Many private cloud projects were built to deliver self-service access to development and test resources. While those clouds delivered faster access to resources, they lacked visibility, control and security needed for production deployments. In their session at 18th Cloud Expo, Steve Anderson, Product Manager at BMC Software, and Rick Lefort, Principal Technical Marketing Consultant at BMC Software, will discuss how a cloud designed for production operations not only helps accelerate developer...

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?

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...

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...
