TG World Provides Update on Tindalo-1 Oil Well Testing Program

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) - Project partner and operator of Service Contract 54A in the Philippines, Nido Petroleum Limited, ("Nido") has provided TG World Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:TGE) ("TG World") with an update on the Tindalo-1 well. The well has been testing at various production rates since early June.

"Nido Petroleum Ltd provides this update on the Extended Well Testing ("EWT") at Tindalo.

A series of tests have been completed to further assess the productivity of the well and the source of the produced water. The following can be confirmed:

  • Well productivity exceeded expectations with high rate testing confirming well productivity in excess of 18,500 barrels per day;
  • Some 56,708 barrels of oil along with approximately 5,384 barrels of water have been produced from the well;
  • The water processing equipment is not available for use due to an equipment fault and the field is being produced at a restricted rate of approximately 6,000 bbls/day for operational purposes. This equipment is scheduled to be replaced in the coming days thereby allowing production rates to be optimised; and
  • The water that has been produced to date may be either fluid introduced to the reservoir during the drilling and/or completion of the well or alternatively it may be formation water. Produced water samples are being analysed in Singapore to confirm the water source.

Nido advises that it will provide a further update to the market once the reservoir management plan has been finalised including the optimised rate for the EWT."
