Welcome to Royale Energy Inc. (ROYL) Board!!!
Royale Energy, Inc.(NASDAQ: ROYL
) is recognized as one of the top 20 fastest growing natural gas and oil producers in the United States by Oil & Gas Journal. The company has also been named Oil & Gas World’s “Play of the Month” on five occasions. Headquartered in San Diego, California, Royale Energy’s stock is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbol ROYL
. The company’s principle lines of business include the production and sale of natural gas and oil, acquisition of oil and gas interests and proved reserves, drilling of exploratory and developmental wells and sales of fractional working interests in the wells it drills. Royale Energy owns wells and leases in California’s Sacramento and San Joaquin basins, Utah and in the Gulf Coast basins of Texas and Louisiana.
The company diversifies the development of its properties by selling a portion of the working interest in each lease that it acquires to third party investors and retains a portion of the prospect for its own account. The prospects are then bundled into multi-well investments. This strategy of shared ownership in multiple wells provides investment opportunities that minimize risk while seeking superior returns for shareholders and direct working interest investors. http://www.royl.com/overview.htm http://www.royl.com/Photo_Gallery/MainPGPage.htm About the Company
