TransGlobe Energy Corporation announces a successful well on Block 32(13.81% working interest) in Yemen. The Tasour #19, an appraisal well located at a southwest extension of the Tasour Field will now be completed as a new Qishn producer. Tasour #19 was an extended reach, high angle exploration/appraisal well with the objective to appraise the central southwest portion of the Tasour field and to evaluate a potential Basement exploration prospect located south of the main Tasour field in Block 32.

The well was directionally drilled to a total depth of 2,997 meters and did not reach the Basement due to massive lost circulation and drilling difficulties in the Naifa carbonates. It was therefore decided to complete the well as a Qishn producer and accelerate increased production from the Tasour field. The operator expects the Tasour #19 well to increase the Tasour field production by 2,000-3,000 Bopd (275-414 Bopd to TransGlobe). A dedicated well into the Basement prospect is planned at a later stage and will be drilled from a more optimal surface location to reduce hole angle. It is anticipated that a drilling rig will return to Block 32 in October 2005 for a two well program.

TransGlobe is well positioned for continued growth with interests in three production sharing agreements in Yemen (two producing, one exploration), one exploration concession in Egypt and producing oil and gas properties in Alberta, Canada.
