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."

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
All clouds are not equal.
