San Diego, September 25, 2014 – Royale Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: ROYL) today announced that

its McKinney well in California’s Sacramento Basin was drilled to a total depth of 7,000 ft. Electric

logs indicate several potential intervals that could contain substantial reserves. The well was drilled

from Royale Energy’s 3-D seismic data that indicated multiple seismically defined targets.

“Royale Energy is very pleased that the logs show a substantial target zone that has potential to

significantly increase new production for the company,” said Stephen Hosmer with Royale Energy.

“We will be completing and testing McKinney and will announce the results when available.”
