Caza Oil & Gas Announces Another Successful Bone Spring Well

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 -- Caza Oil & Gas, Inc. ("Caza" or the "Company") (TSX:CAZ)(AIM:CAZA) is pleased to announce another successful drilling result in the Company's Bone Spring exploration and development program with the first development well on the non-operated Jazzmaster Property in Lea County, New Mexico.

The Jazzmaster 17 State #3H horizontal Bone Spring development well reached its intended total measured depth of approximately 15,315 feet in the 2nd Bone Spring Sand interval on May 22, 2014, and was subsequently fracture stimulated beginning on June 9, 2014. Under controlled flowback, the producing rates have remained steady. On June 23, 2014, the well produced at a peak 24 hour rate of 650 barrels (bbls) of oil equivalent, which consists of 569 bbls of oil and 488 thousand cubic feet of natural gas. The well continues to clean up and is producing on a 48/64ths choke at 590 pounds per square inch flowing casing pressure. This well is a direct offset to the Jazzmaster 17 State #4H test well, which means infrastructure is already in place and oil and natural gas are already going directly to sales.

Log and core data were also obtained across certain intervals including the Brushy Canyon, Avalon and 1st and 3rd Bone Spring Sand intervals in both wells. The data indicates the presence of oil and natural gas across each of these intervals, which is favorable for the future development of these sections.

Caza has a 25.0% working interest (approximately 19.94% net revenue interest) in the Jazzmaster 17 State #3H and #4H wells and the balance of the property, which is approximately 480 acres.

W. Michael Ford, Chief Executive Officer commented:

"The completion of this first development well at Jazzmaster is another great result for the Company's Bone Spring program and exceeds expectations. We are very pleased with this well and the development opportunities still to come on this property. Like Caza's other Bone Spring properties, the Jazzmaster property has multi-pay potential from the primary zones in the play, as proven by the log and core data from both wells.

All of Caza's Bone Spring properties are close to existing infrastructure, but as we drill development wells on properties that are already producing, such as Jazzmaster, it expedites already quick hook-up times. This means that both oil and natural gas are being sold within a few days of coming online."

ADVISORY STATEMENT

Information in this news release that is not current or historical factual information may constitute forward-looking information within the meaning of securities laws. Such information is often, but not always, identified by the use of words such as "seek", "anticipate", "plan", "schedule", "continue", "estimate", "expect", "excellent", "may", "will", "hope", "project", "predict", "potential", "intend", "could", "might", "should", "believe", "develop", "test", "anticipation", "looks to be" and similar expressions. In particular, information regarding timing of and information to be obtained from drilling operations, completion operations and future production ratios, cash flows and reserve values contained in this news release constitutes forward-looking information within the meaning of securities laws.

Implicit in this information, are assumptions regarding the success and timing of drilling operations, rig availability, projected production, projected revenue and expenses and well performance. These assumptions, although considered reasonable by the Company at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect. Readers are cautioned that actual future operations, operating results and economic performance of the Company are subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including general economic, market and business conditions, well performance and operating risks and could differ materially from what is currently expected as set out above. The Jazzmaster 17 State #3H and #4H horizontal Bone Spring wells are in early stages of production. Future flow rates may vary, perhaps materially, and the tests disclosed herein are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or of ultimate recovery.

For more exhaustive information on these risks and uncertainties you should refer to the Company's most recently filed annual information form which is available at www.sedar.com and the Company's website at www.cazapetro.com.

While we may elect to, we are under no obligation and do not undertake to update this information at any particular time except as may be required by securities laws.

Boe or barrel of oil equivalent may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion of six thousand cubic feet: 1 barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
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.
