PrimeGen Energy -- Rod 10-22 Oil Well Reaches Target Depth

BRIDGEWATER, NJ--(Marketwire - December 14, 2009) - PrimeGen Energy Corp. (PINKSHEETS: PGNE) ("PrimeGen" or the "Company") wishes to advise that the drilling of Rod 10-22 well has reached total target depth December 13, 2009.

PrimeGen will be advised as to the commercial viability of the well and productive oil flow rates upon the completion of testing, which is anticipated by December 21, 2009. The well is the second of a proposed development program targeting a minimum of 42 oil wells to be drilled. As part of the accelerated drilling program, a third well is scheduled for immediate drilling shortly after the results of the second well are announced.

The Rod 10-22 well is the second of a multi-well program drilled at Krasnoarmeiskome District, Saratovskoi Oblast in Russia by PrimeGen. The 2009-10 development program calls for the drilling of a minimum of 42 wells to develop the field. When fully developed, the 42 wells could yield a daily production rate at Rodnikovskogo of 110,000 barrels per day.

The property is located in the Krasnoarmeiskome District, Saratovskoi Oblast in Russia, one of the most significant oil and gas regions in the country with advanced infrastructure and more than 60 years of oil and gas production history. Saratov lies in the European part of Russia and borders Kazakhstan, the largest oil producing country in Central Asia. The property covers an expansive area of approximately 250 sq. km.

Continuing 3D seismic data collection and analysis of the property is scheduled for 2010 and will be running concurrently with the drilling program. Several additional high potential drill targets have already been identified and will be further defined and evaluated for feasibility during the next phase of work on the property. The license is within a highly prospective region with existing oil production on adjacent licenses and the super-giant THK-BP gas field.
