PetroWorth: A-08 Well Encounters Hydrocarbon-Charged Sand and Shale Sequences

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 3, 2008) - PetroWorth Resources Inc. (CNQ:PTWR) (FRANKFURT:T3F) announced today the results of the drilling of the A-08 (Feenan #3) well in New Brunswick.

A-08 was drilled and cased, following logging operations, to a total depth of 1950 metres. The well is located on the northeast part of the 37,000-acre Rosevale lease, which is situated between the Stoney Creek field to the east and the McCully field to the southwest. PetroWorth has 100% exploration and development rights to this lease.

In order to fully evaluate the hydrocarbon-charged sand and shale sequences encountered within the well, a comprehensive logging suite was run, including high resolution image logs, which are currently being processed. These logs were run to provide more information about the nature of the hydrocarbon resource within the Albert Formation, which includes the Hiram Brook sands, Frederick Brook shale and Dawson Settlement intervals.

The Precision Drilling #176 rig has been moved to the next drilling site (A-63), which is located in the southwest part of PetroWorth's Rosevale license.
