CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 13, 2010) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF UNITED STATES SECURITIES LAWS.

PetroGlobe Inc. ("PetroGlobe") (TSX VENTURE:PGB) announced today that it amended and increased the size of its previously announced private placement to an aggregate of $4,000,000 and an overallotment option granted to the agents of an additional $400,000 through the issue of units comprised of common shares and warrants and a separate issue of units comprised of flow-through common shares and warrants.

The common share units will each be comprised of one common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant and issued at a price of $0.11 to raise up to $1,500,000. The flow-through common share units will each be comprised of one flow-through common share and one-half of a common share purchase warrant and issued at a price of $0.14 to raise up to $2,500,000. Each whole warrant will be exercisable to acquire one common share at a price of $0.14 until May 31, 2011.

PetroGlobe intends to use the gross proceeds from the issue of flow-through common shares to incur Canadian Exploration Expense or Canadian Development Expense that may be renounced as Canadian Exploration Expense under the Income Tax Act (Canada) by December 31, 2010.

The offering will be on a private placement basis to accredited investors and other eligible purchasers in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario and the securities issued will be subject to resale restrictions for four months after the closing. Closing of the offering is anticipated to occur on or about October 27, 2010.

PetroGlobe has engaged Emerging Equities Inc. to lead a syndicate of agents, including Burgeonvest-Bick Securities Limited, in connection with the private placement on a commercially reasonable best efforts basis. The agents will receive a 6.5% cash commission plus, if a specified minimum proceeds are raised, common share purchase options to acquire that number of common shares equal to 6% of the number of common share and flow-through share units subscribed for under the offering. Each option will be exercisable at a price of $0.11 until twelve months after closing. The agents have also been granted an overallotment option not to exceed $400,000 of either common shares or flow through units for a period not to exceed 30 days after closing.

PetroGlobe also announces a correction to a portion of its September 21, 2010 news release. The number of common share purchase options with an exercise price of $0.16 granted to directors of PetroGlobe in accordance with its stock option plan was 1,000,000 than the 700,000 previously stated.
