East West Petroleum Provides Operational Update for New Zealand
Vancouver, British Columbia: August 11, 2021 - East West Petroleum Corp. (TSX-V: EW) (“East West” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide the following operational update for New Zealand.
A workover of the Cheal E1 and E2 wells to clear downhole wax and sand issues has been recently completed and was successful in re-establishing production in both wells.
The Cheal E field is now producing at an approximate 250 barrels oil equivalent per day, of which about 80% is oil. A trial of a two-stage downhole pump in Cheal E1 proved to be too vulnerable to sand production issues and was replaced with a single stage downhole pump as previously employed. This is working reliably. Plans are in place to increase flow in the near future.
