New Western Gas Corporation Announces Initial Results From Its First Recompletion of an Existing Gas Well Acquired as Part of Its Fredonia Gas Prospect

IRVINE, Calif., July 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today New Western Gas Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of New Western Energy Corp. (OTCBB:NWTR), an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil, gas and other minerals in North America, announced the initial results obtained through its first recompletion of an existing natural gas well acquired as part of its recently announced Fredonia Gas Prospect acquisition. The Fredonia Gas Prospect is a coal gas exploration and development prospect located in the heart of the Cherokee Basin in Wilson County, Kansas. New Western Gas Corporation had previously announced its review of behind pipe gas reserves for additional coal gas formations that can be quickly brought on line for additional natural gas production. Based on the favorable results obtained from this recompletion operation performed on the Farwell 34-D3 well, New Western Gas Corporation will proceed with additional recompletions over the next several months. The Fredonia Gas Prospect contains 9 existing wells, four of which have multiple potential undeveloped coal gas reservoirs behind pipe.

Javan Khazali, President and CEO of New Western Energy Corporation stated, "We are very pleased with the initial results obtained through the recompletion operation performed on our Farwell 34-D3 well. The daily production in natural gas from the Farwell 34-D well has doubled to approximately 50 thousand cubic feet. This excellent increase in production has shown that our overall development plan for this area is right on track. This well, together with other wells located upon the lease, have multiple coal gas formations behind pipe that can be recompleted with similar results." He continued to state that, "Over the next few months, we anticipate not only the further development of these existing behind pipe coal gas reserves, but also the drilling of numerous new wells to fully exploit the Proved Undeveloped Coal Gas Reserves contained within the Fredonia Gas Prospect."
