Recon Technology, Ltd (NASDAQ: RCON) ("Recon" or the "Company") today announced that its subsidiary, Beijing BHD Petroleum Technology Limited, signed two contracts with North China E&P Company (the "North China Branch") of China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation ("Sinopec"). Pursuant to these two contracts, the Company has provided technical service with ultra-deep electric submersible progressing cavity pump ("ESPCP") to one gas well at the Dongsheng Field of the Second Gas Production Plant (the "Plant No. 2") of the North China Branch and will provide the same service to another gas well at the Plant No. 2. Total amount of these two contracts is RMB 3,277,000 (approximately $0.51 million).

Management Statement

"We are extremely excited to make more breakthroughs in the ultra-deep submersible progressing cavity pump business," said Mr. Guangqiang Chen, founder and CTO of Recon, "Since last year when we signed a contract with the North China Branch and completed our first trial, we have now signed service contracts for RMB5.077 million (approximately $0.8 million) with the North China Branch for three gas wells. We are in the process of communicating with the North China Branch for ESPCP and related services for 15 more wells and expect to complete services by the end of calendar year 2021. Added together, we expect these services will bring us about $5 million of income."

Mr. Chen continued, "Beyond our own AI-based technology, we further integrated and upgraded downhole gas-liquid separation metering technology with equipment such as the ultra-deep screw pump from National Oilwell Varco Inc. (NYSE: NOV) and the downhole multi-parameter sensing devices from Power Max Petroleum Technologies Ltd, a Canada based company. We completed the construction for one gas well at Plant No. 2 with our comprehensive solution by April 16, 2021. According to our observation and testing for almost two months, the drainage and gas boosting effect has been stable, and the production status of the whole set of equipment has been reliable. Without this solution, submersible pumps used by oil companies generally have a working life cycle of only three months, after which time sand jams and equipment wear tend to result in interruption of gas well production. As a result, oil and gas companies incur costly inspection and repair fees. Our solution is expected to guarantee stable operation for more than one year, thus saving the high inspection and repair service costs, equipment and accessories replacement costs, electricity costs and sewage treatment costs. Taken together, our solution can help our clients increase their margin by up to 40%. We held an on-site technical exchange and promotion meeting with the North China Branch on May 20, 2021 and we were told that the North China Branch will promote our ultra-deep screw pump same well recovery and injection technology to all the new gas wells to be invested by the North China Branch. In the future, we plan to continue upgrading our technology in the same well recovery and injection business to provide more value-added services to our clients, and bring more long term returns to the Company."
