Transeuro Energy Corp.: Update on Ubuntu-1 Well in PNG

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 3, 2011) - Transeuro Energy Corp. ("Transeuro" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TSU)(OSLO:TSU) announces the news released by Eaglewood Energy Inc. ("Eaglewood") regarding the Ubuntu-1 well in PPL-259 in Papua New Guinea. Transeuro has a back-in option to acquire 10% of all four Petroleum Prospecting Licenses held by Eaglewood in PNG after three wells have been drilled on the licenses by paying 10% of the exploration costs. The Ubuntu-1 well is the second of the three wells. The following is an extract from the Eaglewood February 1, 2011 news release:


As at 09:00 hrs (GMT +10 hrs),the Ubuntu-1 well was drilling ahead in 6" hole at 3,453 metres, after having successfully drilled and cased the 8 1/2" hole to 3,235 metres.

Data acquisition during drilling is limited to LWD Gamma Ray log data and mud logging data. Preliminary evaluation of the LWD Gamma Ray data indicates that the first two of the three primary targets, namely the Elevala sandstone and the Toro sandstone, are present in the Ubuntu-1 well as per prognosis. Gas shows have been observed, however a quantitative assessment can only be made after wireline logging, pressure measurement and sampling programmes have been completed and the data interpreted.

Over the course of the next few days, the anticipated operations will be to drill the 6" hole through the remaining undrilled primary and secondary reservoir targets to the top of the Basement at the well's total depth of approximately 3,600 metres. Wireline logs, pressure measurements, and downhole samples will be acquired once total depth has been reached. Once the appropriate data have been acquired and analysed, the results are expected to be announced on Monday prior to market open.

Transeuro is involved in the acquisition of petroleum and natural gas rights, the exploration for, and development and production of crude oil, condensate and natural gas. The Company's properties are located in Canada, Armenia, and Ukraine. In addition, the Company holds a back-in option to Eaglewood Energy Inc.'s exploration licenses in Papua New Guinea.
