Twoco Petroleums Ltd. Production Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 29, 2010) -

Twoco Petroleums Ltd. ("Twoco" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:TWO) is pleased to announce that it has placed on production its previously announced 2 gross (1.97 net) horizontal oil wells on the Company's Sparky heavy oil play in the Warspite area of Alberta. Based on the initial 9 days of production, the average initial rate for Well #1 is 65 bopd at a 5% water cut and for Well #2 is 53 bopd at a 17% water cut. The cost of drilling, completing and equipping these 2 wells was approximately $800,000 each. Twoco believes that future drilling costs on its Sparky heavy oil lands could be significantly reduced in a multi-well drilling program.

The Company will continue to monitor production from the 2 wells with a view to optimizing production and planning for the drilling of additional wells on the Company's lands comprising the Sparky heavy oil play.

Twoco's Sparky heavy oil play is comprised of 2,500 net acres, representing approximately 60% of the estimated pool area. Based on 200 metre inter-well spacing and 700 metre lateral lengths, the Company has identified up to 53 additional horizontal drilling locations on its lands. Twoco will review all capital expenditures on a regular basis throughout 2011 and adjust spending based on factors such as changes in commodity prices, availability of capital and drilling and production results.

Twoco is an oil and gas company engaged in the exploration for, and the acquisition, development and production of, oil and natural gas reserves primarily in the Province of Alberta.
