Shoal Point Releases Updated Resource Estimate

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/12/14 -- Mark Jarvis, CEO of Shoal Point Energy Ltd. (CSE: SHP)(OTCQX: SHPNF), announced today that an updated NI 51-101 compliant resource estimate, with an effective date of March 31, 2014, has been released and is available on the Company web site at www.shoalpointenergy.com. The report will also be available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

"We wanted to review our Green Point Shale resource in western Newfoundland in light of the rapid increase in understanding of shale plays in recent years," said Mr. Jarvis. "We selected Morning Star Consultants of Austin, Texas, led by Douglas McBride, P.E., to perform the study. Morning Star Consultants has extensive experience in evaluating unconventional resource plays in North America, Argentina, Mexico, Australia and Ukraine on behalf of major and mid-sized oil and gas companies."

"The best (middle) estimate of our prospective resources is 428.4 million barrels of oil," Mr. Jarvis continued. "This is an economic opportunity for Western Newfoundland on a par with the large oilfields offshore of Eastern Newfoundland. We are committed to work with the government and people of Newfoundland and Labrador to responsibly develop this immense resource."

The following table contains estimates of Total Undiscovered Petroleum Initially in Place (PIIP) and estimates of Prospective Resources contained in the Green Point Shale formation within the Exploration Licences that Shoal Point Energy has rights to in western Newfoundland:

Prospective resources are defined as those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations by application of future development projects. Prospective resources are further subdivided in accordance with the level of certainty associated with recoverable estimates assuming their discovery and development and may be sub-classified based on project maturity. Prospective resources have both an associated chance of discovery (geological chance of success) and a chance of development (economic, regulatory, market, facility, corporate commitment or political risks). The chance of commerciality is the product of these two risk components. The Province of Newfoundland and Labrador currently has a moratorium on hydraulic fracturing in place. The prospective resource estimates referred to herein have not been risked for either the chance of discovery or the chance of development. There is no certainty that any portion of the resources will be discovered. If discovered, there is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources.

The Low Estimate represents the P90 values from the probabilistic analysis (i.e. the value is greater than or equal to the P90 value 90% of the time), while the Best Estimate represents the P50 values and the High Estimate represents the P10. Actual resources may be greater or less than those calculated.

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust.

When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
