Raise Production Inc. Announces First Quarter 2016 Financial Results and Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 25, 2016) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

PRESIDENT'S UPDATE

The Company is pleased to provide shareholders with an updated report on current activities regarding its Horizontal Wellbore Production System (the "System") and its rod pump technology.

The System continues to work well in the field with no issues on either the downhole or surface equipment. Any interruptions to the System operation have been for regular maintenance associated with normal operating conditions. The Company continues to expand its learnings on how the System interacts with normal operations of well production. We continue to explore various methods and techniques to improve historical production decline and rates. We foresee this continuing for an extended period of time. The learnings from this operation is a cornerstone for future installs in terms of determining candidate wells and optimal configurations. The current installation has also allowed significant insight into well preparation, completion design, surface control design and required operating power. Future components and manufacturing will benefit greatly from this final test installation.

With respect to the Company's new initiative in reciprocating pumps, the large bore pump is now in the final design stage and test facilities have been built. The pump is being developed to compete in the high temperature, high volume conventional and thermal market segment. The large bore pump is unique in a number of aspects that we believe will enhance and create new markets for the reciprocating pump segment of the industry. The Company continues to discuss this new pump with significant oil producers to secure a test well in order to deploy the prototype pump when it is ready.

The Company would like to thank all of its stakeholders for their patience and support as we enter the final stages of tests for the horizontal System and look forward to expanding into a new large bore pump market.
