Enhanced Oil Resources Provides Operations Update

HOUSTON, Nov. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. (TSX.V: EOR; OTCQX: EORIF; FSE: RWP) (the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update regarding the Company's operations for October.

The Company continues execution of its primary business objectives for 2012 of increasing production and reserves through a work over program at the Crossroads field, infill drilling at the Milnesand oil field, located in Roosevelt County, New Mexico, evaluating the Chaveroo oil field for potential infill drilling and furthering the planning and permitting of a 41 mile CO2 pipeline to connect Kinder Morgan's Cortez CO2 pipeline to our Milnesand and Chaveroo oil fields by September 2015.

Oil production volumes for October averaged 456 barrels of oil per day (bopd), a decrease of 30 barrel oil equivalent per day (boepd) from September. The decrease in production is largely the result of shutting in the Crossroads #101 wellbore from a low rate gas well of 28 boepd to convert it to a second water injector. Oil production from the recently drilled MSU #522 and MSU #141 lateral wells continues at a combined stabilized rate of approximately 88 bopd, in line with our pre-drill estimates of production. The MSU #123 well, the third well drilled in this current campaign, continues to produce water on a rod pump at high rates with minimal oil cut. While the high fluid level is slowly coming down we are now looking to install a high rate pump to see if commercial production can be achieved. A review of the oil shows while drilling indicates that a highly water charged zone close to the beginning of the lateral may be impeding production from the toe of the lateral where excellent oil shows were encountered. We will continue to monitor the production and will provide further updates as they occur.

As previously discussed, the Company is in the process of converting the CDU #101 well from a low rate gas producer (approximately 160 mcf/day) to a water injector for the Crossroads Devonian Unit. This will be the second capacity upgrade to the water handling facilities in the Crossroads field in three years and is necessary due to our continuing success in increasing proved developed producing reserves on the Unit.  The incremental production from the Crossroads CDU #105 and CD#106 wells resulting from the workovers of these wells in 2012 and the re-drill of the CDU #303 has increased our water handling capacity requirements necessary to simultaneously produce all the wells in the field at maximum operating and economic efficiency.  The CDU #101 continues to be worked over and is expected to be connected to receive water in the next few weeks which, when completed, will also result in cash flow savings by reducing the cost of transporting and disposing of excess produced water off lease. The addition of this second water injector at Crossroads will increase our water handling capacity from approximately 8,000 barrels of water per day to an estimated 14,000 barrels of water per day. It is expected that once the CDU #101 is fully operational, the CDU #302 and the CDU #303 wells can be brought back on line at maximum rates.

The Company recently completed survey efforts on the proposed CO2 pipeline connecting Kinder Morgan's Cortez line to the Company's Milnesand and Chaveroo oil fields.  Final survey results indicate a revised pipeline length of approximately 38 miles.  Updated cost estimates suggest that the pipeline can be constructed for less than $20mm.  The Company will proceed with acquiring the necessary rights of way in early 2013 with permitting work to begin later in 2013.  Delivery of CO2 to the Company's proposed pipeline is schedule to commence no later than September 2015.

Mr Barry Lasker states "Enhanced Oil Resources continues to increase corporate values through our lateral infill drilling and work over of existing wells at Crossroads. We expect further increases in daily oil production will continue once our second water injector at Crossroads is on line and when the CDU #303, #102 and CDU #302 are brought on line in the next short while.  Further infill drilling at Milnesand, where we have several years of potential drilling activity, is expected to add to daily production and reserve value when it continues.

Over the next few months the Company expects to highlight our established 3rd party proved hydrocarbon reserve values combined with daily oil production increases and strong financial position in presentations to potential investors and current supporters in our efforts to strengthen our share price and industry market value."

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did.

P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
