SAN DIEGO, Jan. 28, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Royale Energy, Inc., (ROYL) announced the Royale CRC 33-1 natural gas well in the Sacramento Basin flowed 4,600,000 cubic ft. per day with very high reservoir pressure on a combined rate from two zones that were completed in the Mokelumne River formation. A two-hour test had a stabilized rate of 4,600,000 with very little draw down in reservoir pressure. The well was drilled to a depth of 6,800 ft. and discovered multiple pay zones.
Royale Energy and its investors own a 60% working interest, at an 80% Net Revenue Interest, in the well of which Royale owns 15% and California Resources Production Corporation (CRPC), a wholly owned subsidiary of California Resources Corporation (CRC), owns the remaining 40%.
A 3-D seismic survey of the Rio Vista Field, that Royale recently licensed, has identified more of these types of prospects within a 4 to 5-mile trend in the field. The next well, pending final prospect planning and permitting, is anticipated to be drilled in late February.
A total of 7 more Rio Vista wells are planned to be drilled in its 2019 program as part of the joint venture agreement with CRPC. This agreement provides Royale the right to drill at least 30 wells in the Rio Vista Field within 3 years.
