Petrol Lakes is working with Petro River towards a potential joint venture with a strategic partner in China in the company's 85,000 net acres in the Mississippian Lime play in Kansas. The company is also reviewing acquisition opportunities in the Mississippi Lime play in Kansas and Oklahoma.

Petro River has formed a wholly-owned subsidiary named Petro Spring LLC to acquire and develop technologies with a focus on enhanced oil recovery.
