Galleon provides update on Puskwa operations



    CALGARY, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - Galleon Energy Inc. ("Galleon") is pleased to
announce the receipt of Alberta Energy Utilities Board ("EUB") approval
granting Enhanced Oil Recovery (waterflood) approval and good production
practice ("GPP") status on a portion of sections 11 and 13-72-26W5M.
Production restrictions on these sections have been immediately removed and
production from these wells will be gradually increased over the next few
months in an effort to continue proper reservoir management.
    Galleon plans to make application to expand this approved waterflood
scheme on the recently developed portions of sections 11 and 13 and obtain GPP
status thereon.
    This is the second approval for waterflood and GPP status at Puskwa. On
March 23, 2007, Galleon was granted its first waterflood approval by the EUB
on portions of section 32-71-26W5M and section 5-72-26W5M. Water injection was
initiated in June 2007 and performance to date has been positive.
    Galleon has approximately 59.8 million Class A shares and 922,500 Class B
shares issued and outstanding which trade on the TSX under the symbols "GO.A"
and "GO.B".
