NWest Energy provides operational update for its 3D seismic program

    ST. JOHN'S, Oct. 6 /CNW/ - NWest Energy Inc. (TSX-V: NWN) is pleased to
announce it is modifying its proposed 3D seismic data acquisition program for
Western Newfoundland in order to better meet exploration deadlines and expand
the size of the 3D seismic area.
    The data acquisition program will be conducted using Exploration 3D
Seismic (E3D) technology and the Geophysical Service Inc (GSI) vessel GSI
Pacific commencing in mid-October. Using E3D technology, NWest will expand the
size of the 3D seismic area from the original 900 square kilometers to
approximately 1,459 square kilometers. The E3D program will increase the
number of prospects surveyed from four to six of the property's top
11 prospects.
    NWest President and Chief Executive Officer Francois Gauthier said: "We
are very pleased to be expanding the 3D seismic area and excited about
conducting the first modern data acquisition program in the Western
Newfoundland offshore. We are confident the changes to the program will
improve our ability to best identify exploration drilling targets."
