RHP Reports Encouraging Results from Drilling at China's Yongping Oil Field

Singapore-listed RH Petrogas Limited (RHP or the Group), engaged in the business of exploration, development and production of oil and gas resources, announced Thursday that the drilling of 15 development wells at the Yongping Oilfield in Fuyu 1 Block, China has been completed in 2014 as planned.

The drilling of these wells started Nov. 17, 2014 and was completed before the year end. Drilling results are encouraging with producible pays interpreted in 14 out of the 15 wells drilled. The wells are currently suspended in readiness to move into production, which will begin once the winter season is over. The Group plans to drill another 40 to 100 shallow development wells in 2015.

The drilling follows the receipt of the final approval of the Overall Development Plan (ODP) by the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC) of the People’s Republic of China for the phased development of the Yongping Field as announced Oct. 16, 2014.

Francis Chang, CEO said, “We mobilized our resources to commence and complete the drilling of 15 development wells and achieved this within a short period of time after receiving the final ODP approval in October 2014. This demonstrates the readiness and preparedness of our team in China despite the challenges posed by the cold winter conditions at the field locations. We will continue to build on the strengths and capabilities of our team and work towards delivering on the ODP program in 2015.”
