Turnkey E&P's W. Cox No. 1 Well Tests Oil and Gas

HOUSTON, TEXAS -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 03/02/07 -- Turnkey E&P Corporation ("Turnkey"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Turnkey E&P Inc. (TSX: TKY), announced today that its W. Cox No. 1 well discovered oil and natural gas from the Cockfield formation at Clear Creek Field in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. The W. Cox No. 1 is the first well drilled in the field since Turnkey initiated a redevelopment program in the fourth quarter of 2006. The well tested 595 barrels of oil per day, 1.1 million cubic feet of gas per day and no water on a 14/64" choke with flowing tubing pressure of 1,996 psi for two (2) hours from 18 feet of perforations. The well averaged 435 barrels of oil per day, 881 thousand cubic feet of gas per day and no water on a variable choke from 14/64" to 12/64" with flowing tubing pressure of 2,005 psi over a 12-hour period. The well was drilled to a total depth of 9,590 feet and logged multiple pay sands in the Cockfield formation. Turnkey plans to perform a build-up test following the flow test and explore marketing options to sell natural gas.

John Y. Jo, Turnkey's President, commented, "This well represents a significant step in our strategy to identify and exploit bypassed pay zones in mature fields while applying Casing Drilling® technology through the use our purpose-built drilling rigs," said. "The Casing Drilling® process yielded excellent borehole conditions and contributed to good cementing results."

"Additional drilling locations for various Cockfield reservoirs are confirmed by the success of this well," Jo said. "We have already commenced the drilling of the second well in the field with an ongoing development drilling program to follow. Regulatory and Unitization issues are being addressed in order to formulate the strategy for the development plan."

Turnkey has leased or optioned approximately 5,260 acres in the project area and has also entered into a farm-out agreement for an additional 2,800 acres in the Hurricane Creek Field approximately two (2) miles to the north. Turnkey owns a 100% working interest in the W. Cox No. 1 well and the project area. Turnkey's average net revenue interest in the project area is 74%.

Turnkey is an independent oil and gas company that is focusing its oil and natural gas acquisition, exploitation, development and production activities in the continental United States using Casing Drilling® technology.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
