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

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 22, 2016) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016.


Horizontal Pumping System

The System recently retrieved has been tested, disassembled and all components inspected. The technology is functional and has been proven to work. The inspection confirmed that the System was functioning as designed and no damage or wear was found on any of the parts after months of continuous operation. During this inspection the fluid recovered from each pump, which is indicative of wellbore fluid at the pump location, gave significant insight to wellbore performance. The Company has determined the following:

  • Optimum pump placement in the wellbore has been confirmed;
  • The System, along with production data provided by the test partner, shows that when activated the System had a positive effect on well productivity and fluid movement (the test partner is a public company and Raise does not have permission to disseminate actual production data other than the statement above);
  • Gas interference, fluid separation and transitional flow regimes are a significant barrier to productivity;
  • Raise is the only company that has deployed multiple pumps along a horizontal wellbore section and the deployments have been a cumulative range of experiences that are by nature unique and proprietary; and
  • The experience gained from field deployments are of unmatched value and place Raise as a leader in the understanding and control of horizontal wellbore flow dynamics.

Based on the analysis and information gathered from this retrieval it is our intent to deploy a System in early 2017 to obtain additional guidance on the required specifications for deeper wells and shallow Viking/Cardium type wellbores.

Rod Pump

The Company has reached commerciality with its proprietary 1.5 inch rod pump technologies. Recent deployments have been successful with an operator in Southern Alberta with pump efficiency and productivity being increased. Raise is exploring options as to how to exploit this market in the most efficient and productive manner, either through distribution or partner relationships or a combination of both.

Future Financing

The Company has enough cash on hand until the end of the first quarter of 2017. As stated above, the Company plans to proceed with another deployment of the System in early 2017 and concurrently is evaluating financing alternatives to support its technology developments for the balance of 2017.
