VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- East West Petroleum Corp. (TSX VENTURE: EW) (the "Company" or "East West"), is pleased to announce its financial and operating results for the 15 months ended March 31, 2014.

David Sidoo, President and CEO of East West commented, "The past year has been transformational for East West. Not only did the company drill its first exploration wells in New Zealand, it also achieved first commercial production and cash flow, demonstrating the potential of our acreage. Over the next 12 months, we are looking forward to continuing to work with our partner in New Zealand, TAG Oil Ltd., to further grow our reserves and production base on our joint acreage where a number of future drilling locations have been identified as a result of the recent exploration program. In Romania, our partner NIS is continuing with 2D and 3D seismic acquisition and interpretation in preparation for the start of the 12-well exploration program in 2015. With these important milestones achieved, the Company is well positioned for growth from its existing cash balance and cash flow through the upcoming year."

Operating and Financial Highlights


--  Three wells currently on permanent production, testing pending on one
    additional well, and one well awaiting rework.

    onstream in the first quarter of 2014.
--  From inception in November 2013 through March 2014, production averaged
    414 b/d, which benefitted from the Company receiving 100% of the first

About East West Petroleum Corp.

East West Petroleum (http://www.eastwestpetroleum.ca) is a TSX Venture Exchange listed company established in 2010 to invest in international oil & gas opportunities. East West has built a diverse platform of attractive exploration assets covering a gross area of approximately 1.8 million acres. In New Zealand, East West holds an interest in three exploration permits near to existing commercial production in the Taranaki Basin, operated by TAG Oil Ltd. (TSX: TAO); in December 2013, the Company was awarded one block in the emerging East Coast Basin of New Zealand, which covers over 100,000 acres. The Company also has interests in four exploration concessions covering 1,000,000 acres in the prolific Pannonian Basin of western Romania with Naftna Industrija Srbije ("NIS"); a joint venture exploration program covering 8,000 gross acres in the San Joaquin Basin of California; an oil-prone exploration block of 100,000 acres in the Assam region of India with the three largest exploration and production Indian firms ONGC, Oil India and GAIL; and a 100% interest in a 500,000 acre exploration block onshore Morocco. The Company has now entered operational phases in Romania, where it will be fully carried by its partner NIS in a seismic and 12-well drilling program which is underway.

Forward-looking information is subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the Company's actual results, level of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking information. Such factors include, but are not limited to: the ability to raise sufficient capital to fund exploration and development; the quantity of and future net revenues from the Company's reserves; oil and natural gas production levels; commodity prices, foreign currency exchange rates and interest rates; capital expenditure programs and other expenditures; supply and demand for oil and natural gas; schedules and timing of certain projects and the Company's strategy for growth; competitive conditions; the Company's future operating and financial results; and treatment under governmental and other regulatory regimes and tax, environmental and other laws.

Prospective Resources are those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from undiscovered accumulations by application of future development projects. Prospective resources have both an associated chance of discovery and a chance of development. Prospective Resources are further subdivided in accordance with the level of certainty associated with recoverable estimates assuming their discovery and development and may be subclassified based on project maturity. Best estimate resources are considered to be the best estimate of the quantity that will actually be recovered from the accumulation. If probabilistic methods are used, this term is a measure of central tendency of the uncertainty distribution (most likely/mode, P50/median, or arithmetic average/mean). As estimates, there is no certainty that any portion of the resources will be discovered. If discovered, there is no certainty that it will be commercially viable to produce any portion of the resources that the estimated reserves or resources will be recovered or produced.

This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect our forward-looking information. These and other factors should be considered carefully and readers should not place undue reliance on such forward-looking information. The Company disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise forward-looking information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
