WesCan Energy Announces Status Update on Drilling Results at Provost

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - October 5, 2022) - WesCan Energy Corp. (TSXV: WCE) ("WesCan" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update to its previously announced news release with respect to the Company's drilling program at Provost, Alberta.

On September 15, 2022, the Company announced that drilling had commenced and the new well spudded on September 13, 2022. The vertical section was completed to a depth of approximately 490 meters and the build section of the well was drilled, cased and completed.

The rig was formally released on September 30, 2022. The Company is pleased with the results of its multi-leg horizontal well that has provided positive characterizations with good oil staining that was prevalent in the core samples that were taken during the entire drilling operation.

As a result, the Company is now proceeding with the process of completing, equipping and tie-in of the well to WesCan's wholly own infrastructure and production facility. It is expected the well will be completed over the next 7 to 10 days subject to the available scheduling of the required services. Production results from the completion of the well will be announced in a future news release.

The overall results of the drilling program were so encouraging that the Company is now in the preliminary planning stages of drilling a second multi-leg horizontal well in the same core area at Provost, Alberta. Further updates will be available over the course of the drilling program as the Company advances towards the completion and production stages of the new well. All updates and press releases will also be available on the Company's website at www.wescanenergycorp.com
