MIDLAND, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Ring Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: RNGE) (“Ring” or the “Company”) today announced a mid-year 2013 operations update. The Company has entered into its second, ten well renewable drilling contract with Capstar Drilling Company and is currently drilling their twelfth new developmental well on its west Texas leases. Company management estimates it will drill at least 35 new wells by year end 2013. In addition to the new wells, Ring continues to upgrade and improve infrastructure and evaluate its inventory of existing wells for re-stimulation opportunities.

The funds, in combination with the Company’s credit facility, will be used to finance current developmental operations and ongoing leasing activity through 2013.

Mr. Kelly Hoffman, Ring CEO, stated, “We are extremely pleased with our drilling operations to date and very encouraged by its initial results. We continue to execute our development plan and add acreage to our core properties while aggressively pursuing acquisition opportunities.”
