Emerald Bay Sells First Oil Loads at Wooden Horse, Set to Begin 3D Seismic Program at Nash Creek

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/25/14 -- Emerald Bay Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EBY) the "Company" or "Emerald Bay") is pleased to provide an update on recent activities in Texas.

At Wooden Horse, the Company continues production procedures of the Horizontal Edwards well, Kuhn 1H. The Company has now moved ahead with the previously announced plan to add additional stages to the electric submersible pump (ESP). Since the well started pumping in mid January Kuhn 1H has shown significant improvements in oil cut and overall fluid volumes. The Company is now in the process of moving forward with plans to begin increasing the pump speed with the anticipation that the oil cut will increase as the fluid volume that sits above the ESP is lowered. Emerald Bay President, Shelby D. Beattie, expounded, "The additional stage that we have added to the motor has been very encouraging. We have sold the first loads of oil and with slightly more fine tuning we anticipate that the oil production of Kuhn 1H will increase. As with any exploration program, or new field discovery, there is a bit of a learning curve. While it has taken longer than we originally projected, we feel confident that our patience will be rewarded and that the Wooden Horse play will be a success."

Also at Wooden Horse, the Company has completed the Vertical well, Kuhn 2, also in the Edwards formation. Swabbing operations were encouraging and the Company is currently in the process of tying the well into the Kuhn tank battery facility. It is anticipated that the well will be online within the next 2 weeks, depending on weather and surface conditions. As the second well in the Edwards formation at Wooden Horse this is a key step as the Company moves ahead with plans for phase 2development at Wooden Horse.

At Nash Creek, approximately 30 miles from the Wooden Horse play, the Company has acquired a significant land Position. As previously announced, the Company has received the permit to inject salt water. Similar to development of the Wooden Horse play, the salt water disposal well is the key initial step for developing the Nash Creek play. The Company has now finalized the 3D Seismic program Design, with survey and line clearing to begin shortly. Acquisition of the 14 linear miles is expected to take place by mid-April. Emerald Bay's chief geologist, Andy Alff commented, "If the Seismic program confirms what I believe it will, this will be a very exciting find for Emerald Bay with significant Edwards potential."

Forward-Looking Statements

This press release includes statements that may constitute "forward-looking" statements, usually containing the words "believe," "estimate," "project," "expect", "plan", "intend", "anticipates", "projects", "potential" or similar expressions.. Forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts.

Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling results may also be deemed to be forward looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when and if a well is actually developed. BOE's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 Bbl is based on energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. The reader is cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of such information, which are considered reasonable by Emerald Bay at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect. Actual results achieved will vary from the information provided and the variations may be material. There is no representation by Emerald Bay that actual results achieved will be the same in whole or part as those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this document include statements regarding the Company's exploration, drilling and development plans, the Company's expectations regarding the timing and success of such programs. In particular, forward-looking information in this news release includes, but is not limited to, statements with respect to: pipeline acquisitions and leasing; pipeline permits, pipeline construction, production estimates, drilling operations, completion operations, funding and development goals. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking information are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. We cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Consequently, there is no representation that the actual results achieved will be the same, in whole or in part, as those set out in the forward-looking information. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, fluctuations in the prices of oil and gas, uncertainties inherent in estimating quantities of oil and gas reserves and projecting future rates of production and timing of development activities, competition, operating risks, acquisition risks, liquidity and capital requirements, the effects of governmental regulation, adverse changes in the market for the Company's oil and gas production, dependence upon third-party vendors, and other risks detailed in the Company's periodic report filings with the applicable securities regulators.

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. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
