Royale Expands California Production

Stock quotes in this article: ROYL

SAN DIEGO, April 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Royale Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROYL) today announced that it has placed the Goddard 3 and Magnum wells into production. Magnum was drilled and tested in 4th quarter 2010 in its deepest objective, while the main zone remains "behind pipe" to be produced at a later time. Following the completion of a pipeline extension, the well was placed online and began selling gas at a rate of 330 MCF per day.  It will be systematically raised toward a target rate of 750 MCF per day.

Goddard 3 was placed online at a current rate of 500 MCF per day, and will be increased to a target rate of 1,000. The well is the third in Royale's highly prolific Goddard reservoir, deepening the limits of productive Forbes gas sands within the company's Lonestar field area.

"Our continued success in adding production here encourages us to expand our exploration efforts," notes Stephen Hosmer Co-CEO, "We are currently planning to drill several additional wells, and conduct a new proprietary seismic survey to extend the field."

Royale remains committed to the development of domestic natural gas production, currently priced at $4.25 per MCF. "While gas has not kept pace with the rise in oil prices," adds Hosmer, "we believe the sector will see a rapid upward correction as the economy improves. Historically, natural gas prices have tracked oil at a ratio of 10 to 1, so with oil approaching $110 per barrel, gas prices could rebound to nearly $11 per MCF."
