Gravis Oil Corporation Grassy Creek Technology Update
 
CALGARY, July 25, 2011 /CNW/ - Gravis Oil Corporation., (the "Company" or "Gravis"), (OTCBB:GRAVF) which holds a major position in the western Missouri heavy oil development play, completed the drilling of a new development pattern at its Grassy Creek operations at the end of April 2011. The Company's development strategy incorporates the use of modern technologies to increase cost effective production by minimizing lifting costs and improving recoverable reserves per net acre. Gravis is employing advances in chemistry, real time data measurement and drilling techniques to achieve these operational goals.
 
Gravis intends to provide periodic updates regarding the deployment of these advanced technologies and comment on the progression of operating and production results. Steaming of the new Grassy Creek development pattern, consisting of an injection well, two observation wells, and six producing wells on approximately a one-third of an acre site began in early May, 2011.
 
Surface Facilities and Equipment
 
Due to the complexity of producing heavy oil, selecting economic and cost effective solutions for high pressure-high temperature production equipment is critical. During the past six months, Gravis Oil has completed an extensive field evaluation and redesigned and successfully installed surface and downhole equipment that is expected to reduce downtime and lower lifting costs.
 
The previous downhole and surface equipment utilized at the field was replaced with durable and modern equipment designed for harsh temperatures associated with heavy oil operations. The efficiency of lifting equipment was improved in both durability and operability to reduce complications associated with the steam flood and heavy oil fluids. Downhole pumps were replaced and fitted with anti-gas locking devices as well as metal to metal seals designed for high temperature operation. These changes will reduce the frequency of maintenance and boost pump efficiency. Wellhead equipment has been modified to accommodate instrumentation deployment and chemical stimulation, and includes well control devices that will allow flexibility to safely work over existing wells and drill new patterns without associated interruptions of adjacent production.
 
Surface and field piping were optimized as well to handle increased volumes of produced fluid. Larger diameter well production piping was installed to improve flow of heavy oil, along with heat tracing and insulation to improve winter performance. Piping systems were modified to allow for re-injection of hot produced water to conserve heat and pressure energy thereby reducing full-cycle purchases of natural gas. Equipment is being installed to re-capture energy from produced fluids to further reduce the cost of steam generation.
 
Tim Morrision, the Company's chief executive officer, stated: "We are extremely pleased with the progress that we have made at Grassy Creek. Our commitment to produce heavy oil reserves with attractive economic returns to our shareholders is our primary goal. The Company will continue to discover, procure and deploy technologies that will reduce the operating costs associated with heavy oil production while maintaining or increasing capacity and efficiency".
 
Since steam injection began in the new Grassy Creek development pattern in early May, Gravis field personnel have measured a significant increase in reservoir temperature, and encouraging early stage production response. The Company estimates that it may take until late August, 2011 to fully assess the results of the new development pattern.
