CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Crown Point Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CWV) ("Crown Point" or the "Company") advises that the second well of the Tierra del Fuego ("TDF") drilling program, LF-1027, has been drilled and cased as a potential natural gas well. The well encountered approximately 16 metres of gross sand in the Springhill formation The initial completion operations of this well are expected to commence within a week.
The drilling rig is currently moving to the third location, LF-1024. Commencing in mid-July, a fracture stimulation program is expected to be performed on four producing wells in the Los Flamencos natural gas pool, and on the wells drilled during the current program that require fracture stimulations. A similar program undertaken in 2010 significantly improved deliverability from five wells in the Los Flamencos pool.
Management expects that production additions from the drilling and fracture stimulation program will commence in July and as a result, we expect to see rising production volumes and field sales receipts from the TDF area through to the end of the year. Financially, this is expected to have a positive impact on Crown Point's operating results as natural gas prices continue to rise in Argentina and new production may allow the Company to access the benefits of the $7.50/MCF New Gas Subsidy Program on incremental production levels. Crown Point has not yet received approval for its participation in the New Gas Subsidy Program, but does anticipate receiving such approval in the near term.
The balance of the ten well program on the Las Violetas Exploitation Concession in TDF will consist of six more development wells in the Los Flamencos gas pool and two exploration wells, one on the Puesto Quince prospect and another near the southern San Luis natural gas pool. All of the drilling locations have been fully imaged with 3-D seismic. The Puesto Quince prospect lies to the northeast of the Los Flamencos and Los Patos producing pools and is adjacent to the Rio Chico gas pool. The San Luis exploration prospect has been defined with 3-D seismic and is located on a separate fault block near the San Luis gas pool.
Crown Point's interests in the TDF area of Argentina consist of a 25.78% working interest in approximately 489,000 acres (126,000 net acres) pursuant to three producing exploitation concessions, which include the Rio Cullen Exploitation Concession, the La Angostura Exploitation Concession and the Las Violetas Exploitation Concession.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
