Arrow provides second update on Pembina drilling program

CALGARY, Oct. 16 /CNW/ - Arrow Energy Ltd. (TSX Venture: AOF) ("Arrow" or the "Company") is pleased to provide a second update on the first three wells of its Pembina, Alberta drilling program.

The first well, 6-4-49-3W5, has been completed and production tested and is awaiting tie-in of the solution gas to commence first production, which is expected in early November. Production test results from 6-4 met management's expectations and the Company will be making a further announcement when the well is on regular production with stabilized rates. In addition, multistage completion operations were partially completed on the second well, located at 16-34-47-3W5M, however problems were encountered and operations were briefly suspended. The operator studied the problem, designed a solution to resolve it and completion operations will re-commence within the next few days. Finally the third well, 6-33-47-3W5M has reached total depth and is preparing to run casing and the completion packers.

Several successful wells have been drilled and completed in a similar fashion in the Cardium formation on lands on trend to Arrow's property. Arrow will initially have a 16.6% working interest in these wells and potentially up to a 25% working interest in the pool development. The number of wells and timing of the development of the Company's Pembina lands will depend on the success of these three wells, the price of oil and participation of partners. These wells qualify for both the Alberta Drilling Royalty Credit and New Well Royalty Reduction programs.

Arrow is a Calgary-based junior resource company engaged in the exploration, development and production of natural gas and oil primarily in Alberta.
