Raise Production Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results and Provides Operations Update
CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – Nov. 22, 2017) - Raise Production Inc. (TSX VENTURE:RPC) (“Raise” or the “Company”) has released its financial results for three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.
The Company is pleased to provide an update to its shareholders on recent activities related to its operations.
High Angle Lift Solution (“HALS”)
As previously discussed in our press release dated August 23, 2017, the HALS is a High Angle Lift Solution that can have certain downhole tools added, such as horizontal separation, sand control, recovery flow tubes and pack off assemblies for flow control. The added option of instrumentation allows the HALS to be utilized to evaluate the horizontal section while pumping and producing at optimal rates. The proprietary benefit that Raise provides to Exploration & Production companies (“E&P’s”) is optimized wellbore design that allows insight into flow conditions in the horizontal section of the wellbore.
In August 2017, the Company initiated “Open Houses” to introduce the HALS to potential customers. Two were held in the Company’s shop in Calgary, Alberta, which was attended by a total of 65 industry representatives and resulted in a number of private showings to individual companies and followed by sales in the Cardium, Frobisher and Glauconitic zones in central and southern Alberta and SE Saskatchewan.
In October 2017, the Company entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Endurance Lift Solutions, LLC (“Endurance”). This was followed by an Open House at their main location in Midland, Texas, which was attended by 80 local company representatives. As a result of this Open House, the Company has just completed its first sale in South Texas and has a number of additional sales booked in the upcoming weeks. Raise and Endurance are also launching marketing and open houses in other U.S. locations in December 2017. The Company is excited about this partnership and believes it has a progressive and first class relationship with Endurance going forward into the future.

Horizontal Artificial Recovery Technology (“HART”)
The Company has received five patents covering the United States, Australia, Russia, China and Canada for the system and method claims of its HART system. Five additional industrialized country patents are pending. These are important patent claims as they cover the area of any pump type run in multiples in a horizontal wellbore.
The Company has received a number of enquiries from international companies that are interested in purchasing its HALS. With installations of HALS, which provides additional wellbore information to E&P’s, the Company expects HART sales to follow.
