This PetroGlobe Inc. news release contains forward-looking information relating to business strategy, geographic areas of activity, capital expenditures, future drilling, drilling costs, production rates, cash flow, investment payouts and other matters. This information is based on PetroGlobe Inc.'s current expectations and assumptions as to a number of factors, including access to capital, availability of drilling rigs, weather conditions, drilling success, resulting reserves production, ability to tie-in production, decline rates, commodity prices, exchange rates, interest rates and general economic and industry conditions.

The material assumptions applied were that PetroGlobe Inc. continues its exploration and development focus on Alberta and Texas sufficient cash is available for its drilling program through existing balances and future capital raising on acceptable terms, drilling costs are maintained at expected levels, drilling results, reserves and production are within expectations and there is sufficient access to transportation, processing facilities and sales markets.

If those expectations and assumptions prove to be incorrect, or factors change, then actual results could differ materially from the forward-looking information contained in this news release.

Volumes reported in barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) are based on conversion of natural gas to oil at six thousand cubic feet per barrel (6 Mcf:1 bbl). BOE may be misleading, particularly when used in isolation, since the 6 Mcf:1 bbl ratio is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

This press release should not be construed to be a solicitation for the purchase of the corporation's common shares.

The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
