This 25 mile acquisition adds to the North Arbuckle data that resulted in the Goddard wells which have produced over 1.8bcf to date, and the deeper Magnum well.

The company said these wells have contributed to the recent surge in its natural gas production and cash-flow.

Royale Energy is planning to continue drilling in this expanded area for the next several years.

Royale Energy is focused on development, acquisition, exploration and production of natural gas and oil in California, Texas and the Rocky Mountains.
