Aroway Energy Inc. Acquires Land

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 21, 2011) - AROWAY ENERGY INC. (TSX VENTURE:ARW)(PINK SHEETS:ARWJF) ( (the "Company") Reports that the Company together with its Joint Venture Partner (the "Partnership") was successful in acquiring fifteen (15) sections of land, consisting of thirteen (13) sections of shallower rights with drill depths to 1,500 meters and two (2) sections of deeper rights, at a recent Alberta crown land sale. The newly acquired lands are adjoining the Partnership's existing core area land holdings and approximately half the lands are covered with seismic data. Aroway now has access to approximately 90 sections of rights.

Due to heavy rains in the area, testing on the Company's third well of the 2011 drill program has been delayed. Testing operations on the third well will therefore begin later this week followed by a re-completion program on the various recently acquired wellbores. Production results will be released on this well, and the recompletions when the wells have produced at reliable, economic rates.

Chris Cooper, President & CEO, commented, "We are extremely pleased with the results at the recent land sale. The addition of the new lands compliment the already impressive and highly prospective land package that we have access to in our core area in the Peace River Arch."
