Target Energy Limited Provides Update on Fairway Operations

WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/11/14 -- US-focused oil and gas producer Target Energy Limited ("Target") (OTCQX: TEXQY) (ASX: TEX) is pleased to provide an operations update on its Fairway Project in the Permian Basin, West Texas.

  • Drilling has concluded at the Homar #1 well (Target has a 60% Working Interest) with the well reaching a Total Depth of 3,292m (10,800 ft). Homar #1 experienced strong oil and gas shows throughout the Wolfberry section as well as a strong show in the Fusselman Carbonate. Production casing has been run in the well, which will be completed as an oil and gas producer.

  • Drilling is currently underway at Ballarat 185 #1, approximately 5 kms east of the Sydney lease in Glasscock County. Operations commenced on 7 June 2014, with the well presently at a depth of 128m (420 ft), running surface casing. Ballarat 185 #1 will be drilled to a planned Total Depth of 3,350m (11,000 ft) and will test Fusselman and Wolfberry targets. Target has a 60% Working Interest.

  • At Wagga Wagga #2 (Target has a 45% Working Interest), following testing of three zones in the Devonian and Fusselman sections, plans are underway to undertake a fracture stimulation of the lower Wolfberry section -- similar to that performed in Wagga Wagga #1. It is expected that the stimulation program will commence in approximately a months time.

Managing Director, Laurence Roe commented on the operations: "We remain very active. Homar #1 has been cased for production -- not only did we get good shows in the Wolfberry there, but we had a pleasant surprise in the Fusselman with a strong show in that zone. We are drafting plans for the completion program, but expect we will test the Fusselman first. The rig has since moved to our Ballarat 185 #1 location and should take about two weeks to drill that well.

"At Wagga Wagga #2, initial testing indicated that we are on the edge of a Fusselman accumulation that we believe is stratigraphically trapped -- this sets up a good Fusselman prospect just north of this well. In the meantime, we'll complete this well in the Wolfberry. We are waiting on a frac crew and should have that underway in three or four weeks.

"We will have a short break in drilling after Ballarat, but will come back strongly with a minimum three well back-to-back program in August and September, with at least two more wells to follow before the end of the year."

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
