At Klein South, a horizontal well (WI 55%) was drilled in March 2014. The well was completed after spring break up and is currently being equipped for production. The well is estimated to be on production in August 2014. A vertical well (WI 86%) was drilled in Klein South in order to further delineate a Sparky target. This vertical well is currently being completed and tested.

At Klein North, 3 horizontal wells (WI 100%) were drilled in June 2014 from a common surface pad. Completion activity is currently underway and with success all 3 wells are estimated to be tied in and on production in August 2014.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
