CALGARY, Alberta / ACCESSWIRE / August 27, 2014 / Raise Production Inc. (TSX-V: RPC) ("Raise" or the "Company") has released its financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

PRESIDENT'S UPDATE

We would like to take this opportunity to update shareholders on our activity since our last press release on August 14, 2014. At that time, we had indicated an issue with a third party component used in the Horizontal Wellbore Production System (the "System") and were actively pursuing alternate vendors to provide the component part.

We have now identified three potential suppliers of the component and one vendor is currently in the process of manufacturing and providing a replacement. We anticipate receiving a supply of these parts at our facility within two weeks at which time we will commence full range testing including destructive testing of the components to qualify them as suitable. These new components have a different manufacturing process and will be rigorously tested for material and function. While waiting for these components to arrive the Company has begun fabricating new test equipment to ensure these parts are all individually tested and passed before entering into an order that will allow the Company to re-deploy the System into the same wellbore we deployed in during this summer.

It is our intention to have the System ready to deploy early in the fourth quarter of 2014. While this has been a frustrating situation, we consider this to be a normal part of bringing a new technology to commercial success. These components are new and not "off the shelf". Like the many obstacles we have encountered throughout the process of developing this (and any other) new technology, we are certain we will overcome this one.

We must remember that the Company has reached significant milestones to date, namely deployment into the wellbore, the ability to retrieve the System without issues, the ability to activate the System and the design and manufacture of a better vertical lift solution (which has its own patent and commercial opportunities). Shareholders should also take note that the Company has the financial resources to continue on with our original plan to commercialize the System as stated in our prior press release.

We would also take this opportunity to thank our test partners for their patience and confidence in the Company to provide a reliable working system for their wellbores. We would also like to thank our shareholders for the support we have received as we get over this "speed bump".
