TG World Provides Further Update on Tindalo-1 Oil Well Testing Program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 24, 2010) - Project partner and operator of Service Contract 54A in the Philippines, Nido Petroleum Limited ("Nido"), has provided TG World Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TGE) ("TG World") with the following update on the Extended Well Testing ("EWT") program at the Tindalo-1 well. The well has been testing at various production rates since early June.

"Well testing is continuing under the EWT agreement. As previously advised the EWT is for a period of 100 days of actual crude flow/production time or one million barrels of crude production, whichever occurs first.

The programme is designed to evaluate well performance and determine the long-term reservoir management plan for optimisation of reserves and value during the normal production phase beyond the EWT term. The following highlights can be confirmed to date:

  • Approximately 75,000 barrels of oil have been produced from the well;

  • Ongoing commissioning of the production processing equipment has required the well to be produced intermittently and at a restricted rate of approximately 6,000 barrels of fluid per day;

  • The processing equipment provider, Weatherford Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, has mobilised additional specialists to accelerate commissioning activity onsite; and

  • Water sample analysis has confirmed that the produced water is formation water.

The current well testing program is to startup the downhole pump ("ESP") whilst finalising commissioning of the processing equipment. The well will be tested at several fluid rates and will be occasionally shut-in for data gathering purposes over the following days and weeks to evaluate the longer-term water cut development and well performance.

Nido will provide further updates to the market once the reservoir management plan has been finalised or when other material information becomes apparent."
