CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - July 11, 2005) - Triangle Petroleum Corporation (the "Company" or "Triangle") (OTCBB:TPLM) is pleased to announce the following development from its wholly owned operating subsidiary, Elmworth Energy Corporation ("Elmworth").

The firm that provided the resource assessment is an industry recognized leader, specializing in Canadian and international geological evaluations. The consulting firm has first hand knowledge of the Deep Basin of Western Canada along with a diverse experience base in more than thirty-five nations.

The result of this recent work has confirmed a resource assessment in excess of 2 TCF of natural gas. A portion of the 2 TCF has been produced while the majority of the opportunity remains to be exploited. Elmworth will integrate this independent work into the geological and geophysical interpretations that have commenced. The geophysical team is currently being assembled and is reviewing the seismic processing requirements of the 120 square mile 3-D survey acquired by the company.
