Royale Energy Makes Gas Find in the Rocky Mountains
Royale Energy announces a Rocky Mountain new pool discovery with the successful test from a 40-foot Morrison reservoir six miles southwest from closest similar production.
The Moon Canyon #2 well was drilled on a 22 square mile proprietary 3D seismic survey. Several potential Dakota sandstone reservoirs with over 50 feet of potential pay remain to be tested in the well. The new Royale well offsets a Dakota well drilled in 1961 with over 2 billion cubic feet of gas.
With the successful test in the Morrison formation and the established
productivity of the Dakota formations, the Company is planning additional
drilling on offset locations. The company has also begun a new 13 square mile
3D seismic survey to evaluate the highly prospective northern portion of its
acreage position in this area.
