Petroflow Energy Ltd. Announces July 2008 Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2008) - Petroflow Energy Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PEF)(AMEX:PED)

Petroflow is pleased to provide this update regarding our July 2008 operational results including the current status of our Oklahoma drilling activities.

Overall Operations

During the month of July 2008 our exit rate was 2,605 BOEs (15,630 mcfe). We averaged approximately 2,630 BOEs (15,780 mcfe) per day of production during July of which approximately 18% was oil and 82% natural gas and associated liquids. Our average daily production, net to our working interest, increased by 11% over June 2008.

"Our average daily production for July exceeded our average production for April by almost 200 BOEs. April was the last full month in which we reported production from our recently sold Juniper property. At the time, Juniper was producing about 2,700 mcfe (450 BOEs) of daily production. We have effectively added almost 650 BOEs per day to our production base since April 2008", reported Petroflow's Chief Operating Officer, Mr. Sandy Andrew.

Oklahoma Drilling Activity

To date we have enjoyed a 100% success rate in our Oklahoma drilling activity. Our average daily production net to our working interest in the field increased 11% over June 2008.

Forward-Looking Statements

This news release contains statements about oil and gas production and operating activities that may constitute "forward-looking statements" or "forward-looking information" within the meaning of applicable securities legislation as they involve the implied assessment that the resources described can be profitably produced in the future, based on certain estimates and assumptions.

Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates and projections that involve a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those anticipated by Petroflow and described in the forward-looking statements. These risks, uncertainties and other factors include, but are not limited to, adverse general economic conditions, operating hazards, drilling risks, inherent uncertainties in interpreting engineering and geologic data, competition, reduced availability of drilling and other well services, fluctuations in oil and gas prices and prices for drilling and other well services, government regulation and foreign political risks, fluctuations in the exchange rate between Canadian and US dollars and other currencies, as well as other risks commonly associated with the exploration and development of oil and gas properties. Additional information on these and other factors, which could affect Petroflow's operations or financial results, are included in Petroflow's reports on file with Canadian and United States securities regulatory authorities. We assume no obligation to update forward-looking statements should circumstances or management's estimates or opinions change unless otherwise required under securities law.

BOEs derived by converting gas to oil in the ratio of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil (6 Mcf: 1 bbl). BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this news release.
