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

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 24, 2015) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015.


The Company is pleased to provide an update to its shareholders on both its Horizontal Wellbore Production System (the "System") and its rod pump technology.

As stated in our press release dated October 27, 2015, the Company's System which was deployed over the summer was retrieved in early October. After disassembly and inspection of the pumps, reviewing operating results from the deployment and the fluids accumulated within the pumps, the Company has made significant progress toward confirming its theories of horizontal flow.

Based on information gained in our previous deployments, the Company has made changes to its System configuration and a re-deployment of the System will occur prior to year-end. These changes include:

  • alterations to the configuration of the activation system;
  • the interface between the System and the vertical lift; and
  • the pump placement along the horizontal section.

These changes are designed to improve system activation speed, increase efficiency between the horizontal and vertical pumping systems and enhance reservoir drawdown.

In addition, the Company continues to move towards commercialization of its proprietary rod pump technologies as stand alone commercial product lines. It has moved into the third phase of its technology development agreement with Cenovus Energy Inc. The 2.5 inch pump is ready for deployment and the Company is waiting for logistical arrangements to be completed by the customer. The 4.5 inch pump is anticipated to be deployed during the first half of 2016.

The Company would like to thank our staff for their efforts, our shareholders for their support and our industry partners for their continued interest and participation in our initiatives to develop a unique and needed technology.
