Raise Production Inc. Announces First Quarter 2015 Financial Results and Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 27, 2015) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2015.


The Company is pleased to update its shareholders on recent activities and progress in commercializing the Horizontal Wellbore System (the "System").

As stated in our last press release, dated April 27, 2015, regarding testing of replacements for the malfunctioning part, we are pleased to report that tests in our facilities continue to be positive and both replacements are functioning as required with no issues recorded to date. The accelerated test protocol has shown significant resiliency of the replacement part.

Based on the results of the testing, we are pleased to inform shareholders that we will be deploying a System with the replacement part into our test partner's wellbore within the next few days. Once the System is deployed, we will conduct function testing of all parts and the complete System. Following successful start up, the System will be engaged and the well will be placed back on production initiating a period where System operation and production output is monitored. The Company will not release production volumes until the well has stabilized, load fluid is recovered and the System is operating under normal conditions.

The Company also closed a non-brokered private placement of 2,500,000 common shares at a price of $1.20 per common share for total proceeds of $3,000,000 on April 29, 2015, which the Company projects will fund its capital and operating expenditures into late 2016 based on current forecasts.

Eric Laing, President and CEO, commented "we are very excited to be going back into the ground with the System. It has been a challenging process to source and find the replacement part and we are looking forward to testing it in a working environment. We have done as much testing as possible in the shop and it is time for the real test. I would like to express my gratitude to our employees who have worked very hard to get us back to this point and our shareholders for their strong support".
