Transglobe Provides West Gharib Operations Update

TransGlobe Energy Corporation is pleased to provide a mid-quarter production and operations update for the third quarter of 2009. In the Arab Republic of Egypt ("Egypt"), West Gharib (100% working interest), Hana West #7 was drilled and cased as a potential dual zone oil well in August. The well encountered the Lower Rudeis B formation (which tested 450 Bopd in the Hana West discovery well, Hana 18) and extended the Hana West pool (Asl B formation) to the south. The well is initially being completed as potential Lower Rudeis B Oil well.

Following Hana West #7, the drilling rig was moved to El Hoda #1 (west of the Hoshia field) to drill a deep exploration target. The El Hoda prospect is targeting several deeper pre-Miocene formations in addition to the Rudeis formation, which produces at the Hoshia field. The well is expected to reach a total depth of 8,500 feet in the latter half of September, with test results expected in October.

In addition, work continues on the fractured Thebes carbonate project at East Hoshia. The East Hoshia #3 well was re-entered and completed as a potential Thebes oil well in July. Test results to date have confirmed that the Thebes formation in East Hoshia #3 is highly fractured with good inflow capacity, resulting in 100% water production with very little pressure draw-down at the formation. The Company is currently evaluating high-volume lift alternatives to draw down the formation sufficiently to produce oil with the water. If sustained oil production can be achieved from the Thebes formation, it is expected that project would be developed utilizing horizontal wells in conjunction with high-volume lift.

The East Hoshia #4 well, which was drilled in June/July 2009, encountered good oil shows in the Thebes formation during drilling and was completed as a potential Thebes oil well in August. In contrast to East Hoshia #3, the East Hoshia #4 has exhibited very little inflow capability, which could be due to formation damage while drilling or insufficient productive fractures in the vertical wellbore. Stimulation options are being evaluated to remove potential formation damage.
