PetroWorth Provides Status Report on the Drilling of New Harmony #1 in Prince Edward Island

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 9, 2007) - PetroWorth Resources Inc. (CNQ:PTWR) (FRANKFURT:T3F) reported today on the current status of the New Harmony #1 well being drilled by Corridor Resources Inc. ("Corridor") as part of a farm-in on lands held by PetroWorth in Prince Edward Island.

New Harmony #1 was spud on September 14 and reached total measured depth of 3403 meters on October 6. The well was drilled primarily to test Carboniferous age clastics of the Bradelle formation. Several significant gas shows were reported in the Bradelle at depths ranging from 2790 meters to total depth of 3403 meters. The proposed total depth of 3200 meters was extended 203 meters because of encouraging gas shows in the deep section. The well has been logged and sidewall cores have been cut in order to thoroughly evaluate reservoir characteristics. A full evaluation of the logs and cores may take several weeks to complete. In the meantime, Corridor has decided to run production casing to total depth in anticipation of completion and frac stimulation.
