TG World Provides Update on Preliminary Results From Tindalo Sidetrack Well in the Philippines

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 29, 2010) - TG World Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TGE) ("TG World" or the "Company") has been advised by the project Operator of Service Contract 54A, Nido Petroleum Limited, that the Tindalo-1 well sidetrack program has been completed and is online and producing oil.

The Tindalo-1 sidetrack was drilled and completed to a total depth of 1,820 metres south-southwest of the original Tindalo-1 well location. The sidetrack has intersected approximately 180 metres of reservoir within the top 50 metres of the oil column giving approximately 120 metres of near horizontal producing section. The well has been acidized using a coil tubing unit that allows for precise placement of the acid within the well for maximizing effectiveness. The well has been acidized twice over the past three days which has enhanced the well productivity to the current production under natural flow of approximately 5,000 bopd at less than 1% watercut. Additional acidization and well stimulation (including the use of an ESP) may be undertaken in the coming days to increase well productivity further. Oil production is being stored aboard the Tove Knutsen floating storage vessel.

Commenting on the Tindalo 1 sidetrack, TG World President Cliff James states, "TG is pleased that we are producing oil again at Tindalo with a negligible watercut. The project Operator is implementing a conservative and 'go slow' acidization program that we all feel will ramp up production to economically attractive production rates while minimizing water breakthrough which was encountered in the previous wellbore".

Further update on the progress of the Tindalo sidetrack well will be provided following the completion of further acidization and detailed analysis of the initial flow testing.
