ST. JOHN'S -- NWest Energy Inc. 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 (GSI) vesselGSI Pacific beginning in mid-October.

Using E3D technology, NWest will expand the size of the 3D seismic area from the original 900 sq km (347 sq mi) to approximately 1,428 sq km (551 sq mi). The E3D program will increase the number of prospects surveyed from four to six of the property's top 11 prospects.
