Royale Energy, Inc. has achieved a sustained rate of 1,600,000 cubic feet per day after opening an initial 2 feet of a 65 foot gross interval in the recently drilled McKinney well. Following the flow test, a pressure build test resulted in a total pressure of 4,165 psi. Based on the thickness, pressure and areal extent, this multi-BCF well is likely to be counted among the company's largest discoveries.
Following the installation of the pipeline now underway, the well will be placed on production for 7-20 days before opening an additional 30 feet to incrementally add to productive capacity. The full 65 foot interval is expected to be opened later in the year as winter gas demand rises.
