Royale Energy Completes Three New Natural Gas Wells

Royale Energy has drilled and completed three natural gas wells at its Bowerbank field located approximately 20 miles northwest of Bakersfield, California.

The Bowerbank #20, #21 and #22 were drilled in March and have been completed and tested. The wells are waiting on pipeline to begin production. The company also drilled the Bowerbank #19 well with over 30 feet of net natural gas pay indicated on the log but is still waiting on completion. The new wells should add 3,000 MCF per day to the field. Another shallow natural gas target at Bowerbank will begin drilling next week with the Bowerbank #23. The drilling rig has been moved in to drill the deeper 11,000 ft. Bowerbank oil prospect Sam #1 that was imaged on Royale's recent 3-D seismic survey over the field. Operations will begin by the end of next week and total depth should be reached in approximately 30 days.
