East West Petroleum - Corporate Update

Canada NewsWire

VANCOUVER, April 23, 2019 /CNW/ - East West Petroleum Corp. (TSX-V: EW) ("East West" or the "Company") Mr. Nick DeMare, interim CEO, provides this corporate update in regards to various ongoing matters.

East West Petroleum Corp. (CNW Group/East West Petroleum Corp.)

As was announced April 2, 2019 the agreement with Juva Life Inc. was terminated pursuant to the mutual understanding of the parties and the terms of the agreement.  Each company was responsible for its own transaction costs and no break fee existed in the agreements.  The Company has moved on from the Juva transaction and is working with its core assets. The Company continues to hold its oil and gas assets in New Zealand and Romania. 

With respect to its New Zealand assets, the Company is aware that TAG Oil Ltd. has reached an agreement to sell 100% of its New Zealand assets including the Cheal permits which are owned 70% by TAG and 30% by the Company. Closing of the TAG sale has not yet occurred.  Management is currently assessing the options available to realize value from its 30% holding in the Cheal permits and the Company has been approached by parties interested in acquiring our interest.  Negotiations are ongoing.

In Romania the Company has been advised by the operator, Naftna Industrija Srbije ("NIS") that since our update news release of January 8, 2019, the drilling of the Teremia 1001 well has been completed and operations are now moving to testing phase.  As information is received we will provide further updates to the market. The operator has also advised that additional production testing of the Teremia 1000 well is scheduled for June 2019.

The Company currently has cash of approximately $3.2 million and marketable securities with a value of approximately $1.1 million.  All costs related to the Juva transaction have been paid, total being approximately $210,000.  The Company has also recently funded capital expenditures for well workovers for its New Zealand property in excess of $700,000. The work was successful and the Company is now seeing an improvement in production.  The Company is financially well placed and management will be working to advance its future development.
