Petron Energy II, Inc. Reports on Rework Operations in Oklahoma

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - Dec 20, 2012) - Petron Energy II, Inc. (OTCBB: PEII) announced today its progress report on rework operations in Oklahoma.

Petron Energy II, Inc., together with its subsidiaries, engages in the acquisition and development of properties for the production of crude oil and natural gas, transporting natural gas through its pipeline subsidiary and well servicing through its servicing subsidiary, in the United States.

Floyd Smith, President and CEO of Petron Energy II, Inc., states, "In our December press release we stated we began rework operations on our Wagoner and Tulsa County, Oklahoma projects where we currently own 58 existing 'shallow' wells. Operations are focused in two areas, reworking wells and performing maintenance on our midstream system."

Smith states, "We have successfully recompleted the Gerner #1 well in the Burgen payzone. Our recompletion efforts involved installing a larger pump jack to produce more of the fluid the well is currently producing. After successfully installing the larger pump jack we were successful in improving the amount of fluid produced, also we achieved the added bonus of increasing our daily oil rate from 0.84BO/D to 3BO/D. However, after further analysis we have determined that our pump jack is not adequately producing fluid at the same rate the well produces fluid. To increase the fluid level produced by our pump jack we are preparing to increase the size of the pump jack as we did previously. The larger model pump jack is equipped to handle 400-600 barrels of fluid per day; we have determined that this is the range of fluid the well produces daily." Additionally Smith states, "We believe that once our pump jack is able to produce the fluid the well produces, the Gerner #1 daily oil production rate is estimated at 6-8BO/D. We expect rework procedures to be completed within the next 10-14 days."
