FORT WORTH, TEXAS--(CCNMatthews - Oct. 5, 2005) - Wentworth Energy, Inc. (PINK SHEETS:WNWG) announced today that the Company has acquired 100% working interest in three North Texas oil and gas production leases. The leases are located 120 miles northwest of Fort Worth and cover approximately 240 acres.
