Royale (ROYL) Makes Two New Discoveries

SAN DIEGO, July 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Royale Energy, Inc. (Nasdaq:ROYLNews) today announced that it has successfully drilled the North East Parks #1.  The discovery of gas in the two most recent wells brings the year-to-date drilling to six, compared to five in all of 2009.



The North East Parks #1 in the LoneStar field, and the Victor Ranch 3-9 in the East Rice Creek field, represent important advances in the ongoing development of these key areas. The completion of the Victor Ranch 3-9 resulted in producible gas from one of the 3 drilled zones. Completion of the North East Parks #1 will commence immediately following the on-going testing of the Victor Ranch 3-9.

Royale plans to drill at least six more natural gas wells in California this year.

Production from Victor Ranch 3-9 and North East Parks #1 is expected to begin in August, contributing to 3rd quarter revenue. The previously drilled Vann #1 and Goddard 1-7 began selling gas on June 21st and April 16th respectively.

“This success demonstrates our commitment to onshore development of clean burning natural gas,” said Stephen Hosmer, the company’s Co-CEO. “We are encouraged that the improving financial condition of the company and the economy allows us to expand our drilling plans and look forward to further growth and positive earnings.”
