ALASKA

North Slope. Royale Energy has acquired over 96,000 acres on the Alaskan North Slope. The acreage spans over 88 miles east and west of the Trans-Alaska pipeline route and is 22 miles south of the giant Prudhoe Bay oil and gas field, in the heart of the thermal maturity fairway for oil.

CALIFORNIA

Royale Energy has properties covering over 20,000 acres in California and nine 3D seismic surveys in the Sacramento Basin, where we believe tremendous opportunities still exist.
We continue to explore this area with a fine-tooth comb because with 3D technology at our disposal, we can find reserves that were unidentified with older technology.
We currently operate over 60 natural gas wells to date. Royale has had good success and continues to develop and produce the Lonestar, Victor Ranch and North Arbuckle fields, to name a few.
The lure of California is its position at the end of the pipeline grid. Natural gas production flowing from the producing areas of Texas and Oklahoma is being absorbed before it reaches California due to the growing consumption in Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona. Likewise, natural gas flowing from the northern producing regions of Canada is consumed by the economies of Washington and Oregon. California currently imports almost 84% of its natural gas supplies from sources outside the state and is finding competition for the resource stiff. This situation creates value and demand for in-state natural gas suppliers such as Royale, which owns interest in 12 natural gas fields in California.

VICTOR RANCH

Victor Ranch Field is located in Tehama County, in the Northern Sacramento Basin. The field has been producing natural gas for us since we drilled our first well there in 1993. To date, it has gross production totaling more than 17.6 billion cubic ft. of natural gas from 20 company wells.

NORTH ARBUCKLE

North Arbuckle is located in Colusa County in the Sacramento Basin. Currently, this is the most active area for Royale Energy. We have 10 producing natural gas wells that have produced over 5 billion cubic ft. and plan to drill many more in the next couple of years. The North Arbuckle area is considered a key asset because Royale has been able to find significant large gas reserves in an area once believed to have been exhausted. The Goddard, Magnum, Dorset and Somerset wells are on track to produce five more billion cubic ft., and lie in the middle of the North Arbuckle.

  • THE DORSET WELL was drilled in 2012. The most recent evaluation by Royale’s independent reserve engineering firm considered sand thickness, depth and areal extent in their estimate of 2.2 billion cubic ft. of natural gas which may be produced from this discovery.

THE LONESTAR FIELD

The Lonestar Field covers more than 1,000 acres and has produced over five billion cubic ft. of gas from five separate Forbes sandstone reservoirs. It’s trending with the success of the Arbuckle field, which has produced more than 80 billion cubic ft. from similar reservoirs. o THE GODDARD 7-1 WELL is located one mile north of the boundary of Royale’s successful Lonestar field. The well was drilled to test a significant 3D seismic amplitude at a previously unexplored depth. The log analysis indicated high porosity sand reservoirs in the Forbes formation and encountered higher pressure than those produced in the Lonestar field. Goddard 7-1 went into production April 15, 2010 at a rate of 1,000 MCF per day and in mid-October the rate was increased to 5,000 MCF per day. o GODDARD #2 AND GODDARD #3 are offset wells to the Goddard 7-1. o MAGNUM WELL has recently been identified and mapped using Royale Energy’s 3D seismic coverage in Colusa County, of the Sacramento Basin. Magnum is located a mile to the northwest from the recent Royale Goddard 7-1 well. In late 2010, the well reached total depth and electric logs have been run. The well intersected a thick Forbes formation. Log analysis indicates the presence of over 20 feet of natural gas-charged high porosity sand reservoirs, which correlates with the strong seismic amplitude response.
