DUBLIN, IRELAND -- (Marketwired) -- 07/15/14 -- Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:FO)(AIM:FOG)(ESM:FAC) ("Falcon" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that initial drilling operations on the Besa-D-1 well have reached total depth ("TD") of 3,000 metres having encountered gas shows.
Besa-D-1 is the second of a planned three well programme to evaluate the gas potential of the Algyo Formation in the Mako Trough License. The well has now been cased to TD and is suspended pending further technical evaluation in order to determine an appropriate testing programme later this year. No operational problems occurred during drilling.
In January 2013, Falcon agreed a three-well drilling programme with Naftna industrija Srbije jsc ("NIS") to target the Algyo Play, whereby NIS made a cash payment of US$1.5 million to Falcon in February 2013, and agreed to drill three wells by July 2014 at their cost. The July 2014 date for completion of drilling and testing of the NIS three well programme has been extended to 31 December 2014. This extension has been granted to allow NIS to:
-- Complete the testing of Besa-D-1; -- Evaluate the hydrocarbon potential of the entire Mako Trough including the Deep Mako play; and -- Fulfill the third well obligation of the NIS three-well drilling programme.
Philip O'Quigley, CEO of Falcon commented:
"We are pleased to confirm that we have drilled, without any operational difficulties, the second of the three well drilling programme, with our partner NIS. The technical evaluation of the well results and the testing programme will take place during the second half of 2014.
In working together, Falcon and NIS have agreed to extend the completion date for the three well programme from July 2014 to 31 December 2014 in order to identify the appropriate location and geological target for the drilling of the third obligation well within our prospective acreage in the Mako Trough."
This announcement has been reviewed by Dr. Gabor Bada, Falcon's Head of Technical Operations. Dr. Bada obtained his geology degree at the Eotvos L. University in Budapest, Hungary and his PhD at the Vrije Aniversiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands. He is a member of AAPG, EAGE and SPE.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
