Sundance Energy Closes Alexander Property, Central Alberta Farm-Outs

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Sundance Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:SNY)(OTCQX:SNYXF) ("Sundance" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that further to its news release dated November 19, 2012, it has closed nine participation agreements (the "Farm-outs") for a portion of its 50% owned, 27 contiguous section (17,280 acre) Alexander Property and has received a license to drill a test well at 16-11-56-27-W4M (the "16A-11 Test Well"). The Alexander Property is located just northeast of the city of Edmonton, Alberta and immediately adjacent to a Detrital Sand and Alexander Sand light oilfield that is undergoing continued development by another operator. The Farm-Out participants consist of a group of arms length and non-arms length parties (the "Participants"). Sundance anticipates that drilling of the 16A-11 Test Well will commence this weekend.

Three of the nine Participants are non-arm's length parties ("Non-Arm's Length Participants"). Each Non-Arm's Length Participant has paid Sundance a $20,000 equalization payment for expenses previously incurred on the Alexander Property, and is paying 5% of the costs to drill, complete and equip the 16A-11 Test Well to each earn a 3% working interest in the 16A-11 Test Well and the applicable drilling spacing unit. By participating in the 16A-11 Test Well each of the Non-Arm's Length Participants will also earn the right to participate for a 2.5% working interest in future wells drilled on 5 of the 27 sections (3,200 acres) of land that comprise the Alexander Property (the "Farm-out Lands").

Cumulatively, the Farm-Outs have provided Sundance with $120,000 in equalization payments from the Participants. The Participants are cumulatively paying 33% of the costs to drill, complete and equip the 16A-11 Test Well in order to cumulatively earn a 21% working interest in the well and the applicable drilling spacing unit. Sundance is paying 17% of the costs to drill, complete and equip the 16A-11 Test Well and will maintain a 29% working interest in the well and the applicable drilling spacing unit. By participating in the 16A-11 Test Well the Participants will also cumulatively earn the right to participate for a 17.5% working interest in future wells drilled on the Farm-Out Lands. Sundance will maintain a 32.5% working interest in the Farm-out Lands and a 50% working interest in the other 22 sections (14,080 acres) of land that comprise the Alexander Property. If at any time in the future a Participant declines on its right to participate in its working interest on a well proposed to be drilled on the Farm-out Lands, the Participant will lose all rights to participate in future wells to be drilled on the Farm-out Lands.

Sundance is the operator of the 16A-11 Test Well and the Alexander Property. The 16A-11 Test Well has been identified utilizing extensive 3D seismic data and modeling. The 16A-11 Test Well is primarily targeting light oil production from the Detrital Sand formation and secondly light oil production from the shallower Alexander Sand formation.

Sundance Energy Corporation is a junior publicly traded oil and gas company whose primary focus is exploring First Nation Lands in Western Canada. Sundance trades in Canada on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "SNY".

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable.

"Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric.

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
