Ring Energy Provides Encouraging Update on Northwest Shelf Phase II Development Program

The Woodlands, Texas, UNITED STATES

-- Successful 2021 Drilling Campaign Focused on Highest Rate-of-Return Inventory and Capitalizing on Higher Oil Price Environment --

THE WOODLANDS, Texas, June 16, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ring Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: REI) (“Ring” or the “Company”) today provided an update on its previously announced program to drill and complete three wells (“the “Phase II Program”) on the Company’s top tier Northwest Shelf (“NWS”) acreage, targeting Ring’s highest rate-of-return projects in Yoakum County, Texas.

The Bevo 664 C #2H well came online May 1, the Bevo 664 A #4H came online May 27, and the Bevo 664 A #3H came online May 30. All three wells started producing oil within three to four days of coming online, which is very encouraging in comparison to earlier wells drilled in the Section. During the last seven days, the three wells combined have achieved an average of approximately 300 barrels of oil per day per well. The Company’s working interest in each of the three wells is approximately 74%.

Mr. Paul D. McKinney, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “The continued successful results from our development program are very encouraging and re-enforce our confidence in the strong inventory of drilling locations on our NWS acreage. In addition to the strong production results, all seven wells in our Phase I and Phase II programs were drilled and completed on schedule and within budget. With the recent positive outcome of our spring 2021 bank redetermination, the increased flexibility afforded by our pivot to a more opportunistic hedging strategy, and a sustained higher oil price environment, we are actively developing plans for our Phase III drilling program that could commence as early as the third quarter 2021. We look forward to keeping shareholders apprised of our efforts as we remain squarely focused on maximizing free cash flow generation to best position Ring for long-term success.”
