Aroway Energy Inc. Inks Option Agreement With Major Oil Producer

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 16, 2014) - AROWAY ENERGY INC. (TSX VENTURE:ARW)(OTCQX:ARWJF) ( (the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has executed a seismic option agreement with a major independent oil Company (the "Optionor") on 18 sections or portions of sections of freehold land (approximately 8,800 acres) adjoining Aroway's existing land base of 15 sections (9,600 acres) in the Kerrobert area of central Saskatchewan.

Pursuant to the Agreement, Aroway has committed to shoot, process and interpret approximately 21 sections of 3D seismic over the option lands. Upon completion of the seismic program, Aroway can elect to acquire the freehold leases for a fee payment for a 2 year term subject to a gross overriding royalty. If Aroway elects to acquire the leases, Aroway is then committed to drill a test well on the option lands, with requirements to continue to drill to keep the leases, and will have the option in certain circumstances to extend the term of the leases.

Chris Cooper, President & CEO of Aroway Energy commented, "The execution of this agreement is a significant milestone for the Company as it almost doubles our land position at Kerrobert. With significant production nearby, we are confident endorsing this area as a new core property. We are eager to begin the 3D seismic program over the lands enabling Aroway to fulfill its commitments under the agreement and begin to exploit this property."

The lands are close to key infrastructure including a high-grade road, power, gas, a nearby oil terminal and rail.
