Cub Energy Announces North Makeevskoye-4 Commences Drilling

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Cub Energy Inc. ("Cub" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: KUB) announces that the North Makeevskoye-4 ("NM-4") exploration well commenced drilling on June 16, 2014. NM-4 is operated by KUB-Gas LLC ("KUB-Gas"), a partially-owned subsidiary in which Cub has a 30% effective ownership interest through its 30% shareholding of KUBGAS Holdings Limited ("KUB Holdings").

NM-4 is located approximately 3 kilometres west of the NM-3 well drilled in July 2013. It is a combination structural/stratigraphic play targeting Moscovian aged channel sands, defined from amplitude anomalies observed on 3D seismic data. The NM-4 prospect is estimated to have 1 Bcf of prospective resources (best estimate) by the Company's independent third party evaluator (as of December 31, 2013). The planned total depth is 2,000 metres and the well is expected to take 41 days to drill.

If NM-4 is successful, it will strengthen the chances of success on two more fault blocks within the same channel system, and could open up a new exploration fairway within the Olgovskoye, Makeevskoye and North Makeevskoye licences.

North Makeevskoye Licence

North Makeevskoye is the largest of the five licences in which Cub participates through its working interest in KUB-Gas. It does not yet have production, but the NM-3 well drilled in 2013 tested small amounts of oil from the Visean section. A stimulation is planned for later this year to try to achieve a commercial flow rate.

Further Dividends from KUB Holdings

KUB Holdings has declared dividends of approximately $12.6 million ($3.8 million net to Cub) year-to-date in 2014, including $9.2 million ($2.8 million net to Cub) so far in the second quarter.

Mikhail Afendikov, Cub's Chief Executive Officer said, "These dividends reflect the continued success of operations in eastern Ukraine -- without interruption -- despite the isolated political violence ongoing in the eastern region of the country."

The proceeds of the dividends are continuing to fund the Company's exploration and development efforts in western Ukraine - namely, Cub's 100%-owned Rusko-Komarovske ("RK") licence and for general working capital.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
