Westbridge Announces Mobilization of Work Over Crew and Equipment for Bivens Field

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 8, 2014) - As an update to its news release dated March 18, 2014, Westbridge Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:WEB)(PINKSHEETS:WEGYF)(FRANKFURT:PUQ1) ("Westbridge" or the "Company") alongside Black Pearl Holdings, LLC ("Black Pearl") is pleased to announce the mobilization of a work crew and the Baker Hughes's STIMGun propellant-assisted perforating system to the Bivens Field in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana. The work crew and equipment are scheduled to be on location by the end of the week. Production results will be available several days after the work over of the Olympia Minerals #2 ("OM#2") well has been completed.

Westbridge and Black Pearl also anticipate securing a work crew and fracture equipment for the 11,300' sand of the Olympia Minerals #1 ("OM#1") well at Bivens Field in the near term. Similar to the OM#2, Baker Hughes will be conducting this work over.

Management Commentary

Mr. Tosan Omatsola, President and CEO of Westbridge, comments: "The work over of the wells at Bivens Field will mark a significant step forward for Westbridge and its partnership with Black Pearl Holdings, LLC. It is anticipated these work overs will produce results similar to the initial production rates at the time these wells were drilled and may provide cash flow sufficient to sustain the ongoing operations of both companies. The OM#1 had initial test rates of 240 barrels of oil per day and 1 million cubic feet of gas per day and the OM#2 had initial test rates of 160 barrels of oil per day and 800 thousand cubic feet of gas per day."
