TransGlobe Updates Operation on West Gharib

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/24/2010, Location: Africa

TransGlobe Energy Corporation is pleased to announce an operational update on successful Egyptian exploration and development programs.

West Gharib, Arab Republic of Egypt (100% working interest, TransGlobe operated)
In February 2010, the Company successfully fracture stimulated the Arta #9 well in the Nukhul formation. The Arta #9 vertical well is currently producing 210 Bopd and appears to have reached a stabilized production rate. Arta #9 was previously producing 25 Bopd prior to the stimulation.

Following the success of Arta #9, the Company successfully fracture stimulated three additional vertical wells (Arta #2, Arta #4 and Arta #8) in the past week. The wells have been placed on production and the early production rates indicate they will stabilize at similar rates to Arta #9 (approximately 200 Bopd per well).

A multi-staged fracture stimulation program is being designed for the Arta #12 horizontal well drilled in 2009. The stimulation program is expected to be completed in late April/early May, subject to the availability of multi-stage packer equipment.

In addition, the Arta #6 vertical well is planned to be stimulated following the Arta #12 work.

The Hoshia #8 step-out appraisal well was drilled and cased as a multi-zone (Rudeis/Nukhul) oil well. Hoshia #8 was initially completed in the Nukhul formation and is producing 80 Bopd. Hoshia #8 will be evaluated for a potential fracture stimulation treatment similar to the Arta field.

The Hana #21 step-out appraisal well located on the northern end of the Hana field has been cased as a Kareem producer. The drilling rig will move to the southern end of Hana to drill Hana #22 prior to moving to the Arta field to drill a step-out appraisal well at Arta #13.

As previously disclosed, the Company has expanded the 2010 capital program to add a second drilling rig to the West Gharib project in the second quarter of 2010 to accelerate the Nukhul program in the Arta, East Arta, North Hoshia and Hoshia areas.
