Royale Hires Halliburton to Manage Uinta Program

Royale Energy, Inc. plans to execute a drilling program to continue the development of its 20,000-acre block in the Moon Canyon field of the Uinta Basin in Utah.

The company has engaged Halliburton's Project Management teams to advise on the planning, development, and execution of the project—including well plan and design, drilling plans, service coordination, and well site supervision. Operations are scheduled to begin in June 2007.

"Royale is excited to enter a new phase of growth in the development on this property," said Stephen Hosmer, CFO, Royale Energy, Inc. "Following the discovery we made in the Moon Canyon #2 well and the recent completion of a third-party pipeline, Royale believes that the time is right to accelerate development. We believe that Halliburton has the regional expertise and track record to manage the entire project efficiently and effectively."
