Royale Expands Field Production

Royale Energy, Inc. has successfully drilled the Victor Ranch 6-8 well in California's Sacramento Basin. The well was drilled to a total depth of 5,200 ft. and encountered several potential productive intervals. A completion rig is scheduled to arrive on location on May 15th to commence completion and testing. Royale's extensive pipeline infrastructure in the Victor Ranch field will allow gas sales to begin immediately following a successful test.

After conducting 3D seismic in 1999, new un-drilled areas of the field were identified.

Royale Energy has now drilled 16 commercially productive wells in the field that have produced over 10 billion cubic ft. of natural gas.

Preparations are being made to drill the Victor Ranch Godfrey well next.

Headquartered in San Diego, Royale Energy, Inc. is an independent energy company. The company is focused on development, acquisition, exploration, and production of natural gas and oil in California, Texas and the Rocky Mountains.
