CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 16, 2007) -


TG World Energy Corp. Announces Proposed Financing

TG World Energy Corp. ("TG World" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TGE) announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Wellington West Capital Markets Inc. ("Wellington West") to pursue a private placement financing (the "Offering"), on a best efforts agency basis, of up to $12 million of common shares of TG World, through a syndicate of agents consisting of Wellington West, Tristone Capital Inc. and Jennings Capital Inc. (the "Agents"). The agreement with Wellington West provides that the issue price of TG World common shares to be sold in connection with the Offering will be determined by TG World and Wellington West in the context of the market. Under the agreement, the Agents have the option to increase the Offering by up to an additional $3 million of common shares at the issue price.

The proceeds from Offering will be used to fund TG World's ongoing exploration efforts in Alaska and Niger and for general working capital purposes. The principal purpose of the Offering is to allow TG World to advance its exploration program in Alaska while it awaits the receipt of funds from the State of Alaska's exploration credit program. TG World expects to receive initial funds on account of the exploration credit program in the second half of October 2007.

All securities issued in connection with the Offering will be subject to a four month hold period under applicable securities laws in force in Canada. The Offering is scheduled to close on or about November 20, 2007 and is subject to certain conditions including, but not limited to, the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange, and completion of due diligence by the Agents.

The securities being offered have not been registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to, for the account or benefit of, U.S. Persons absent U.S. registration or an applicable exemption from the U.S. registration requirements. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to purchase securities in the United States.

Corporate Profile

TG World is a Calgary-based, junior international oil and gas exploration company. On March 18, 2006, TG World Energy Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of TG World, entered into a major exploration project through the formation of a joint venture with Brooks Range Petroleum Corporation. The BRPC / TG World Joint Venture ("JV") was formed as an exploration strategic alliance covering a large area of mutual interest on the Alaskan Central North Slope. The Company's indirect interest in the Central North Slope Alaska Joint Venture includes a 25 - 35% working interest in approximately 335,000 gross acres of lease lands and an AMI under which additional lands may be acquired. The Company has a 35% working interest in the Gwydyr Bay Prospect Area. The North Shore #1 well was cased as a potential oil producer in the 2006/07 winter drilling season. The well is approximately 1,100 feet west of and appears to be comparable to the 1974 Mobil Gwydyr Bay South No.1 well, which reportedly flowed at an average rate of 2,263 bopd on production test from the same formation. A full testing program of the North Shore #1 well is expected to be undertaken during the 2007/08 winter season, as well as the drilling of up to three additional wells.

Through a wholly-owned subsidiary, TG World holds a 20% carried interest in the Tenere Block, an oil and gas concession in the Republic of Niger, Africa, measuring 71,155 square kilometers (17.3 million acres). The Tenere Block contains the northern half of the Termit - Tenere Rift. The southern half is adjacent to the Agadem Block, where six oil discoveries and one gas discovery have been announced. CNPCIT, a unit of CNPC, holds the other 80% of the Tenere concession and acts as operator of the project. The first two wells to test the Tenere Block, Saha-1 and Fachi West-1 (drilled earlier in 2007), were dry holes. The selection of the location for the third prospect is expected to be finalized in the near term.
