The primary focus of Northern Spirit's development drilling program in 2013 and 2014 has been at Provost in East Central Alberta, which includes the Klein and Cadogan areas. The Company owns 23,300 gross or 16,700 net acres (26 sections) in the area of which 7,600 net acres is undeveloped (12 sections).

Further, in June 2014 the Company recompleted 1 gross (1 net) vertical well at Cadogan. All of the 2014 newly drilled wells targeted Sparky medium gravity oil and all were drilled and cased to full planned depth.

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.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
