Canada-based East West Petroleum Corp. (the Company or East West) provided the following operations update on the first well of its 2013 nine well exploration program in the Taranaki Basin of New Zealand with partner and operator, TAG Oil Ltd.

TAG also reported to the Company that well logs from the Cheal-E1 well indicated that approximately 108 feet (33 meters) of hydrocarbon bearing strata was encountered within the Urenui and Mt.
