TG World Provides Operations Update on Tindalo-1 Well

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2010) - TG World Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TGE) ("TG World" or the "Company") announces that project partner and operator of Service Contract 54A in the Philippines, Nido Petroleum Ltd., has provided the following update on the Tindalo-1 well.

"Nido Petroleum Limited ("Nido"), as Operator of Service Contract 54A ("SC 54A"), is pleased to advise the following update on the Tindalo-1 well intervention and remediation programme.

Tindalo-1 has been re-entered and the completion removed. The original programme next called for retrieval of the downhole perforation equipment to allow access to the wellbore for diagnostic logging which was proving to be a time-consuming exercise. Since the logging was a non-critical element of the remediation programme, the potential information gain was closely weighed against the cost to continue leading to a decision to cancel the logging program and proceed directly with the sidetracking of the well.

The sidetrack programme has now commenced following the successful cementing of the existing wellbore and will effectively provide a new well drainage location in the crestal part of the field. Details of the forward program are summarised below:

  • Drilling of Tindalo-1ST1 will commence today;
  • Tindalo-1ST1 will be drilled at a high angle to vertical and will intersect approximately 150m of reservoir section within the top 50m oil column;
  • Once drilled, Tindalo-1ST1 will be completed barefoot with pre-drilled, slotted liner;
  • The sidetrack activities are expected to be completed by the second half of September, following which the Extended Well Test will continue; and
  • The offtake window for the first cargo (oil produced to date from Tindalo) has been planned to coincide with well activities and is scheduled for 16-18 September, subject to weather."
