Aroway Energy Inc. to Increase 3D Seismic Coverage by 75%

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 2, 2012) - AROWAY ENERGY INC. (TSX VENTURE:ARW)(PINKSHEETS:ARWJF) ( (the "Company") is pleased to report that Aroway and its Joint Venture Partner have commenced field work on an approximate 55 square kilometer 3D seismic program. The 3D data acquisition will shoot over a portion of Company lands recently acquired at crown land sales and lands acquired through acquisitions. The 3D program within the Company's core area will image Triassic and deeper Leduc structures typically evident along the Peace River arch. The Company expects the 3D data will identify numerous new Leduc features that will significantly increase the Partnerships inventory of drill prospects.

Chris Cooper, President & CEO, commented, "This 55 square kilometer 3D seismic program is a tremendous undertaking for Aroway and our Joint Venture Partner. The 3D program will increase our seismic coverage on our 101 sections of land in our core area by 75%. Interpretation of the new seismic data will significantly increase our drilling prospect inventory and reduce our exploration risk as we execute on our 2012 drill program."

Further to the Company's news release of December 14, 2011, Aroway anticipated having production results by the end of January 2012. As a result of the recent two week cold weather snap in the Company's core area, the Company has been delayed in certain completion operations on its new wells. The Company will release results once it has obtained reliable information on the new wells.
