Gulf Western Brings Frio Well On Stream

Gulf Western Petroleum Corporation reports that the Pope # 1 has been drilled; casing has been set to a depth of 3780 ft; and that it is currently awaiting hook up to the gathering system and testing. The Pope #1 Gas Unit is part of the Brushy Creek V Natural Gas Project in Lavaca County, Texas. The Pope #1 natural gas well will be produced from numerous Frio reservoir sands, beginning with a series of stacked amplitudes from 2400ft-2900ft. This particular sand sequence has proven to be highly commercial, as evidenced by the Bishop # 2 Jacobs well that is approximately 1800 feet northeast of the Pope #1 location. The Bishop # 2 Jacobs well has produced in excess of 1.1 BCFG (billion cubic feet of gas) and is currently flowing at a rate of 275 MCFGPD (thousand cubic feet gas per day) from a similar sequence of seismic events.

The Brushy Creek V Project is a two well project generated by utilizing newly acquired 3D seismic data. Each of the two new wells will test amplitude anomalies with strong trough over peak 3D seismic expressions.

Sam Nastat, Gulf Western President and Director stated, "We are very pleased with the results of our Frio drilling program in Lavaca county and Dewitt county Texas. We have, to date, successfully drilled five out of five Frio wells as part of our thirteen well Shamrock and Brushy Creek Projects. The Pope No1 is the second successful well in our Brushy Creek project and the fifth successful well in our Texas Frio drilling program. We believe that both our Pope # 1 well and our O'Neal Smith # 1 well (announced July 10, 2007) will be tested and on line within 45 days."
