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

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Aug. 23, 2017) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for three and six months ended June 30, 2017.

PRESIDENT'S UPDATE

The Company is pleased to provide an update to its shareholders on recent activities related to its Horizontal Wellbore Production System (the "System") and High Angle Lift Solution ("HALS").

Horizontal Wellbore Production System

The Company has retrieved the System from the test partner wellbore. The material retrieved from inside of the pumps gave the Company more relevant information and confirmed that the System had been operating as designed and had been producing the fluids that the wellbore was capable of inflowing from the reservoir. The System works.

The Company has recently developed a unique method to immediately increase productivity of existing customer wells and evaluate the inflow, flow characteristics, pressures and temperatures at multiple points while pumping the build and vertical sections with the Company's HALS. This information will ensure proper placement of the System along with increased accuracy in determining estimated remaining reserves from non-producing and flow restricted areas of the wellbore. This information can then be utilized to determine the optimal number of pumps and pump placement along the wellbore and provide a more accurate estimated optimal recovery of oil and gas for the operator.

Based on this new method and cumulative knowledge gained from installs in the test partner wellbore, the Company now has a clearly defined methodology to identify wells for optimal performance.

The Company is excited to partner with third party suppliers to provide the logging tools, reservoir evaluation (including 3D modelling) and dynamic flow simulation in addition to the Company's "in house" production engineering for the completion design and hardware recommendations for customers.

High Angle Lift Solution (HALS)

The HALS is a high angle lift solution that can have certain downhole tools added, such as horizontal separation, sand control, velocity flow tubes and pack off assemblies for flow control. The recently added instrumentation allows the HALS to be utilized to evaluate the horizontal section while pumping and producing at optimal rates. The double benefit to E&P's is maximized productivity by optimizing vertical and build sections of the wellbore while gaining insight into flow conditions of the horizontal section.

The Company's private demonstrations of its products and the recent open house held at its facility has resulted in confirmed sales, multiple follow up requests and confirmed the industry's interest in optimizing horizontal wellbores. Raise believes that as this product continues to gain traction, the evolution of horizontal wellbore evaluation will become increasingly attractive to producers.
