Raise Production Inc. Announces First Quarter 2017 Financial Results and Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for three months ended March 31, 2017.

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 recent developments related to its patent pending High Angle Lift Solution ("HALS").

Horizontal Pumping System (the "System")

The System has worked flawlessly over the last few months with the downhole pumps and surface unit controls giving continuous operation with the only required down time for routine maintenance of compressors. The Company has been implementing various optimization scenarios to assess what expected production increases may be seen from this older wellbore. To date, we are confident that all production is being produced from the toe area and not from the depleted heel area and will be accretive to heel production once the well is reconfigured to allow full productivity. Based on this deployment and in additional discussions with Canadian and U.S. operators we are confident that the vast majority of horizontal wellbores are disadvantaged in terms of productivity from the toe area compared to the heel sections.

High Angle Lift Solution ("HALS")

The Company has deployed the last prototype test of its HALS for a major E & P company and, as stated in the last press release dated April 26, 2017 regarding previous installs, this new install has again produced outstanding results. Since the last press release, the Company has initiated a sales program to identify and engage the best candidates to bring this technology to the right market in the shortest time frame possible. The Company is excited to offer a number of options to industry operators that will eventually lead to the horizontal multiple pumps as the ultimate recovery method for stranded reserves in the toe area of wellbores.

Future Opportunities

The Company continues to receive positive feedback from some U.S. operators with interest in pursuing development of the System and the HALS for use in U.S. basins. The Company continues to be in discussions with a number of companies and will update shareholders as these talks progress.
