United Hunter Announces Second Appellate District, Court of Appeal, Dismissal in the Huasna Prospect and an Update on the Porter Ranch Prospect, San Luis Obispo County, California

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/25/14 -- United Hunter Oil and Gas Corp. (TSX VENTURE:UHO) ("UHO" or the "Company") announces that the Second Appellate District, Court of Appeal of the State of California has affirmed the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo's ruling to dismiss the writ and takings lawsuit filed by Excelaron, LLC (UHO is a 65% partner of Excelaron) in regards to the San Luis Obispo Board of Supervisors denial of the permit to drill the Mankin's (Huasna) Oil Field.

UHO is currently reviewing all of its options related to the Huasna Prospect at this time, including the filing of an immediate appeal to the Supreme Court of California.

By way of update on the Company's efforts on the Porter Ranch prospect also in San Luis Obispo County (the Company has a 25% joint venture interest in Alamo Creek Oil LLC ("Alamo Creek"), an exploration stage company based in San Luis Obispo, California), Alamo Creek recently learned that the County Planning Department accepted as complete the minor use permit application on the Porter Ranch (DRC 2013-00062) proposed exploration plan. Alamo Creek, through its operator and partner in the project, Production Specialties Company, has subsequently amended that permit application to limit the exploration to a single well on the southern Pad A (the previous application sought to drill up to 4 wells) to help alleviate local concerns for the drilling of 4 wells in the area. The County is currently evaluating that amended application. The multi-disciplinary evaluations already conducted to date have concluded that no serious or major disturbance to an environmental resource could reasonably be anticipated by the drilling of these wells.

The amended one well exploratory drilling proposal in the middle of the Porter Ranch 4,000+ acres, a project that was previously approved by the County several years ago, is now being sought for two primary reasons: 1. to establish whether mineral resources in commercial quantities are accessible in the area, and 2. to collect and evaluate basic data that will provide a more accurate forecast of the necessary facilities, environmental assessments and plans needed in the event that a future production facility is proposed.

United Hunter's President and CEO, Timothy J. Turner made the following statement: "The decision by the Appeals Court is unquestionably disappointing to the Company and certainly unfortunate for the mineral interest owners being denied access to their mineral estate. Together with our other partners in this project, we will decide what alternatives we have going forward and continue to pursue those options vigorously. However, we continue our efforts to get an approval on our Porter Ranch permit request and have addressed every concern that the County has requested and hope these efforts will be successful and result in the ultimate approval for this project."

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...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
