Gulf Western to Hook Up Fourth Brushy Creek Well

Gulf Western Petroleum says that the Goodrich-Poindexter No. 1, the fourth well drilled in the Lavaca County Texas Brushy Creek Project, has been drilled; casing has been set to a depth of 3778 ft; and the well is currently awaiting completion testing and hook up to the sales line. The Goodrich-Poindexter No. 1 Gas Unit is part of the Brushy Creek VI Natural Gas Project in Lavaca County, Texas. The Goodrich-Poindexter No. 1 natural gas well will be produced from a strong peak over trough seismic event at an approximate depth of 2800 feet that compares very favorably to production in and around the Brushy Creek Area.

The Brushy Creek VI Project is a three well prospect generated by utilizing newly acquired 3D seismic data. Each of the three 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 seven out of seven Frio prospects as part of our thirteen well Shamrock and Brushy Creek Projects. The Goodrich-Poindexter No. 1 is the fourth successful well in our Brushy Creek Project and the seventh successful well in our South Texas Frio drilling program. We believe that both our Williams No. 6, our Pope No. 1, our O'Neal Smith No. 1, and Goodrich-Poindexter No. 1 will all be tested and on line within 45 days."
