Flat Rock Field Expands to Include Royale's V Canyon Wells, Acreage

The Utah Division of Oil & Gas has enlarged the boundaries of the Flat Rock field to include Royale's V Canyon wells and acreage. Flat Rock has proven to be one of the most significant gas discoveries in the Uintah Basin.

Royale Energy recognized the potential value of the field in 2003 and acquired more than 20,000 acres. The exploration program for the acreage included the drilling of more than seven wells, all of which reached depths of more than 10,000 feet. Royale's V Canyon 20-1 established production from the Entrada formation, prompting the Utah Division of Oil & Gas decision.

Stephen Hosmer said, "We feel that this recognition validates our view of the potential of our acreage. Royale's future plan includes additional development in 2009. The completion of our V Canyon 20-2 will utilize a large fracture stimulation (frac) to further enhance production from the field."

The Utah state decision becomes effective April 6, 2009.
