Raise Production Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results and Operations Update

CALGARY, Nov. 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Raise Production Inc. (TSXV: RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

PRESIDENT'S UPDATE

Horizontal Wellbore System

Raise Production Inc. ("Raise Production or the "Company") successfully deployed its first prototype Horizontal Wellbore System (the "System") with our industry partner in August 2013. The System was function tested for a 60 day period. As reported in our press release dated October 21, 2013, the results were positive and confirmed that continuation of the three well test strategy should proceed. Some conclusions from the test indicate:

  • The System can be deployed around the build section and out into the horizontal section of the wellbore with close tolerance components;
  • A conventional single or double service rig with no additional special modifications, other than some minor rental equipment, is capable of performing the deployment; and
  • The System activates and functions as designed and is capable of moving liquids and gasses in phase flow along the horizontal section of the wellbore and up to a pre-determined height in the build section.

The points noted above have moved us significantly along the learning curve and have enhanced our understanding of flow regimes, how these regimes interact with pumps in horizontal and vertical configurations and what we need to accomplish in the next test in order to maximize impact on well productivity. The next deployment will effectively mirror a commercial type System. It is anticipated that the next installation will commence mid-December 2013.

Hydraulic Submersible Pump ("HSP")

The Company has taken a write down on its remaining HSP inventory. Continued weak market demand for unconventional shallow gas completions has led us to conclude that significant movement in inventory reduction over the next twelve months is unlikely.

Engineering and Product Development

The Company's engineering group has been focused on the modification and development of components we found would be required in the commercial deployment as a result of the test install. The engineering completed to date indicates that the Company may have some potential patentable designs in addition to the horizontal pump patent applications currently in process.

The Company is excited to be entering the initial stage of commercial type Systems, we are looking forward to having results that verify the need for the System and the manner in which it allows horizontal oil and gas to be produced.

We remain appreciative of all shareholders and stakeholders for their support throughout this development period.
