BEIJING, Oct. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Recon Technology, Ltd. (NASDAQ: RCON),
an oilfield service company provider (the "Company") operating primarily in
the People's Republic of China, announced today that its fracturing projects
in China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation's ("Sinopec") Zhongyuan oilfield
have been accepted by the client, marking completion of the project.

The Company initially introduced the Baker Hughes' Frac-Point^TM -Open Hole
Fracture System to Zhongyuan Oilfield at the end of 2011. During the Company's
fiscal year ended June 30, 2013, Recon signed several fracturing service
contracts with an aggregate contract value of RMB 30 million (or US$4.8
million) with Sinopec Zhongyuan oilfield. According to Zhongyuan's final
assessment report, Recon applied horizontal well fracturing in 12 wells (4 oil
wells and 8 gas wells), and achieved a "100% success ratio" with no accidents
or injuries. Compared to normal fracturing services, horizontal well
fracturing technology could raise the daily oil yield by 12 tons, and daily
gas yield by 15,000 cubic meters. These results showed increased yield and
economic benefit and suggest that horizontal well fracturing may be applied in
Chinese common oil-water wells and shale-gas wells.

"Our successful introduction and use of horizontal well fracturing lay a solid
foundation for Recon's continuous expansion into China's domestic oil and gas
service industry," said Mr. Chen Guangqiang, CTO of Recon Technology. "Our oil
and gas service industry is driven primarily by both capital and technology.
In the past few years, Recon has been devoting significant resources to R&D
and field-testing with Chinese oilfield companies. To date, we have gained
valuable on-site experience and technical knowledge when it comes to
customizing proven global technology to fit the specification of our Chinese
oil and gas clients. Looking forward, we are very confident that, by
delivering advanced technology and customized solutions which enable Chinese
oil and gas companies to improve their production, efficiency and safety, we
will develop more long term and mutually beneficial business relations in
Chinese energy industry."
