Aroway Energy Inc. Closes in on Year-End Production Target

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 19, 2011) - AROWAY ENERGY INC. (TSX VENTURE:ARW)(PINK SHEETS:ARWJF) ( (the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company is ahead of schedule on its 2011 year end production target of 600 boe/day. Aroway's current net production is 530 boe/day which is made up of 76% oil, 22% gas and 2% natural gas liquids from the Company's Peace River Arch core area. Aroway expects to surpass its 2011 production target before year-end as the Company continues its recompletion program and the partnership's latest drilled wells are tested and brought online.

Chris Cooper, President & CEO commented, "This is a tremendous accomplishment for Aroway Energy and our joint venture partner. We have worked diligently to ensure we meet all of our targets and expectations that we communicate to our shareholders. The Company's growth over the past year from a small 4 section farm-in with no production, to almost surpassing our year-end target today coupled with our rolling option on 96 sections of land with 3 months remaining in 2011 is a formidable achievement."

During the remainder of 2011, the Company and its joint venture partner will continue its exploration and development program with an additional 2 wells to be drilled before year-end pending regulatory approval and rig availability. The partnership continues to be active pursuing land acquisition opportunities which will increase the Company's strategic foot print in the Peace River Arch core area.

The Company will release material information with respect to new wells and future land acquisitions as the exploration strategy permits.
