Wentworth Energy Secures Up to $4 Million Line of Credit

FORT WORTH, TEXAS--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 13, 2005) - Wentworth Energy, Inc. (PINK SHEETS:WNWG) announced today that it has closed on a $1 Million working capital line of credit (LOC) from Coach Capital LLC. The terms of the LOC enable the Company to increase the funds available to $4 Million based on the achievement of mutually agreed performance criteria.

"Today's announcement marks an important milestone as we continue to transform the company from early stage to a viable junior energy producer," said John Punzo, Chairman and CEO, Wentworth Energy, Inc. "It is very difficult these days to secure traditional bank financing for a young company such as Wentworth Energy, and Coach Capital's eagerness to work with us speaks volumes for their confidence in our business plan and prospects."

The LOC is for three years with advances secured by promissory notes. At the option of the lender the loan can be converted into shares of Wentworth Energy at a price of $0.90 per share on the first $1 Million. Any funds over $1 Million are convertible at 75 percent of the five-day bid price proceeding the draw down of funds with a floor price of $0.90 per share. The interest rate on advances is 10 percent, calculated and payable annually, with an additional loan fee of two percent deducted from each advance of funds. A finders' fee of 100,000 common shares was paid to a third party on the completion of this transaction.

Gord McDougall, President of Wentworth Energy states, "Coach Capital is an ideal partner to help finance Wentworth's growth and the company's working capital needs, as we develop our oil and gas prospects throughout the Country."
